Tuesday Teasers: 4 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:
Duval grabs my hand and pulls me forward. "Ismae Rienne is sent from the abbess at the convent of St. Mortain."
The duchess's eyebrows shoot up. "Mortain? The patron saint of death?"
From page 207 of Grave Mercy by Robin Lafevers. (I read finished Grave Mercy last Thursday but it was so good, I had to share a teaser from it.)

No factions? A world in which no one knows who they are or where they fit? I can't even fathom it. I imagine only chaos and isolation.
From page 110 of Insurgent by Veronica Roth.  Sequel to Divergent.

Karen's:
But his children--they had all gone on without him, had grown into people he would not know. They would be little more than strangers to him, and he to them.
Taken from page 28 of The Returning by Ann Tatlock.

Everything's changed, he said, his voice rough.
I know. How you can ever forgive--
Forgive you? I'm dead because of you. And you still couldn't leave me alone.
Taken from at 2% on Kindle of Betrayal by Lee Nichols (the second book in the Haunting Emma series).

Happy Reading! We are donating 50 cents for each legitimate comment we receive on all our blogs during May to Joni and Friends for Camp Scholarships for families with special needs children.

  1. I just finished Grave Mercy and loved it, too! Such a great idea. And I'm waiting for the parcel truck to deliver Insurgent.

    Great teasers, thank you for sharing and for stopping by at BookVenturers.

    1. We think you enjoy both of these books! Once you read Divergent, we're sure you will also want to read Insurgent.

    1. I just discovered Ann Tatlock's books this year and so far read three and liked them all. Hopefully I'll get my review of this one posted tomorrow.
