Tuesday Teasers: 3 This week


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should  Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought  I  would play for fun! Just do the following
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on  that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away!   You don’t  want  to  ruin the  book for others!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can  add the book to their TBR  Lists  if they  like your teaser.   
Gerard's:
The beliefs she had cherished for a lifetime would be vindicated. But now she couldn't deny what was staring her plainly in the face: dogs in China ate better than doctors in North Korea.
From pate 220 of Nothing to Envy--Ordinary Lives in North Korea by Barbara Demick. (Non-fiction)

I wanted to shout, "Of course we're going to die! The sisters are the lucky ones--for them it is over!"
From page 152 of The Lifeboat by Charlotte Rogan.

Karen's:
I wanted to do for Satchel Queen what Theodore Dutton did for me. At least what he did for me before the tragedy happened.
From page 87 of Every Secret Thing by Ann Tatlock.

Happy Reading! We are donating 50 cents for each legitimate comment we receive on all our blogs during April to Paralyzed Veterans of America.

  8. Is Gerard's true? That sounds deeply unsettling.
