Tuesday Teasers: Two Fiction and one Non-Fiction


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:
   And there he was, her tiny son, teetering near the edge, a ghostly image in the fog.
   "Noah," she whispered, suddenly terrified, her fingers sliding down the pane as panic surged within.
Taken from page 9 of You Don't Want To Know by Lisa Jackson.

Karen's:
Katie squirmed uncomfortably. "Misty shouldn't get suspended," she protested weakly. "Not when there are, what do they call 'em, extenuating circumstances."
Taken from page 35 of Catching Fireflies by Sherryl Woods (A Sweet Magnolia novel).

It is an incontestable fact that you are no longer young.  One month from today, you will be turning sixty-four, and although that is not excessively old, not what anyone would consider to be an advanced old age, you cannot stop yourself from thinking about all the others who never managed to get as far as you have.
  Taken from page page 2 of Winter Journal by Paul Auster.  (I only read up to page 8 and quit on this one--didn't care for the lengthy sentences--this is actually one of the shorter ones!)

Happy Reading!

  5. I've read quite a few books by Lisa Jackson and Sheryl Woods, so I'm sure I'd enjoy those -- especially after reading your teasers. I'm not so sure about Winter Journal. My dog thanks you for donating to Best Friends.
    My teaser is from LIES THAT BIND by Delinda McCann.

  6. Some good teasers. I am especially intrigued by that of Lisa Jackson. My teaser: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.

  7. Good teasers! These are all authors I've never read, but I've got their books on my TBR list -- especially Paul Auster.

  8. Nice teasers! Though I've never heard of either book, it definitely leaves you curious for more.
