Tuesday Teasers: 1 thriller and 2 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 (well, we cheat and choose specific ones)
  • 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:
Laura ignored this display, mostly because she didn't know what else to do. Later on someone told her that at that pivotal moment she'd played a good game of something called "negotiation jujitsu"; but she knew that she was just doing what you learn to do naturally as a quiet person in a loudmouth world.
From pg. 28 of Quiet--The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain. (non-fiction)

     Unless, of course he was a prisoner himself . . .
     But if that were so, then, in some way beyond her understanding, it was by his own choice, for there was no cell in the world that could hold her son against his will.
From page 6 of Godsent by Richard Burton. (a thriller)

Karen's:

I gently lifted Comet's ears, displaying the numbered tattoos that still made my stomach lurch a little.  The girls' expressions had been solemn as I talked about Comet's early life and how racing greyhounds were routinely mistreated, then abandoned or destroyed. 
From page 65 of Comet's Tale--How The Dog I Rescued Saved My Life by Steven D. Wolf with Lynette Padwa. (non-fiction)

  2. The first quote and the last one caught my attention the most. The first one because I am an introvert and I understand. The second because it is so sad.

    I hope you enjoy all three books and happy reading.

  3. I think we've all played "negotiation jujitsu" before....
    Imagine, being held against your will.... such a terrible thing to fathom.
    I hope the dog is alright.....

  4. I have not read any of your books today. I consider myself a quiet person. Hope your New Year is off to a great beginning.
