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 (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.

The other kids started screaming. One girl, Tess, was crying so hard she couldn't breathe.
From page 5 of The Darkest Minds by Alexander Bracken. (YA fiction--click link to see Gerard's review)

Ultimately, the only way to experience the richness of life is to live in an attitude of gratitude: to appreciate what you have and what you can give. The best way to ensure your happiness is to assist others in experiencing their own.--Anthony Robbins
From page 129 of Chicken Soup for the Volunteer's Soul--Stories to Celebrate the Spirit of Courage, Caring and Community (Non-fiction, inspirational)


Gerard's:
     The story of this rooster actually begins with a dog.
     His name was Harry, and if it's true that you get just one truly wonderful animal in your time on this earth, then without a flicker of a doubt, he was mine.
From page 10 of Buddy (How a Rooster Made Me a Family Man) by Brian McGrory. (fun read)

If you like inspirational non-fiction, be sure to check out my review of The Power of a Positive Woman by Karol Ladd that I posted yesterday.  It is the best inspirational non-fiction book I've ever read!

Happy Reading!

  1. Poor Buddy, even though it's his name on the book, he still wasn't the one great pet.

    I have The Black Box on my list.

  5. I hate that cry, that's the ugly cry.
    I agree with Anthony Robbins tenfold. I have been trying to live my adult life as just that. It's amazing how good it feels to do things for others, even the little things.
    Dogs really are mans' best friend. I know, I have two. :-)
