Tuesday Teasers: Four For You


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:
Yes--a wrong answer will be penalized. Dizziness. Vomiting. Hallucinations. Maybe even death.
From page 109 of The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau.

For, "The one who desires life, to love and see good days, must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit. He must turn away from evil and do good; he must seek peace and pursue it."
From I Peter 3:10-11 of The Holy Bible (New American Standard version) See my review of I Peter posted yesterday.

Gerard's
"I had a dog once." Those were words I'd hear again and again. As soon as people saw Pransky, or put their hand in her hair and stroked her neck, they were transported back to some time and place in their life that was not here or now.
From page 67 of A Dog Walks into a Nursing Home by Sue Halpern. (My review will be up tomorrow.)

At six, she lets herself get up, amazed, horrified, and oddly thrilled to find that the events of the night before were not a dream, but beyond all that impatient to find out what exactly happened, and what will happen next. Murder, she is convinced of that.
From page 16 of The Why of Things by Hartley Winthrop.

Happy Reading!  Check our Giveaway for the book I wrote in memory of my dad:  My Funny Dad, Harry
