4 Varied Tuesday Teasers--Funny, Scary, Creepy


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.   

Karen's:
"I guess we have a visitor again. If it's okay with you, we'll just go on. Chasing a cat around the platform isn't on my order of service today."
From page 149 of The Cat That God Sent by Jim Kraus--Humorous Christian fiction. (My review will be up tomorrow for this one.)

I have two from The Blood of Lambs--A Former Terrorist's Memoir of Death and Redemption by Kamal Saleem with Lynn Vincent--Nonfiction. (It was hard choosing a teaser, there are so many interesting and shocking things and I barely started this one.):
Nearly thirty years before, empowered by the Muslim Brotherhood and the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), I had come to America.  From the Koranic teaching of my youth, I knew that by infiltrating the American education system, overrunning its universities and jails, and swarming its poor neighborhoods, my jihadist brothers and I could usher in Umma--one world under Islam.  It would be, as Americans like to say, "a piece of cake."
 From page 7.
In 1993, in a challenge to convert his Christian wife to Islam,Walid studied the Hebrew Scriptures.  Within six months, he decided that everything he had been taught about the Jews was a lie.  
From page 24. 


Gerard's:
Hearing him say her son's name was worse than having Manx's hand on her wrist or blood on her feet.  (Clean blood, she told herself, clean.)  Hearing this man, convicted murderer and child molester, speak of her son made her dizzy, genuinely dizzy, as if she were in a glass elevator rushing quickly into the sky, the world dropping away beneath her.
From page 7 of NOS4A2 by Joe Hill--super natural suspense.


Happy Reading!

  1. Wow. Have to say The Blood of Lambs provides the most appealing quotes for me, but I never would have picked it by the topic. Thanks for sharing, maybe I shall seek it out on my next non-fiction binge!

  5. I don't get the cat thing. I'm not surprised that everything he'd been taught about Jews was a lie. Did that make him reconsider the umma thing?

    How does blood stay clean on a floor?

    I'm full of questions this week.
