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:
"They're just a couple of men trying to feed their families, and they got no other way to do it except to sell spirits to people who want an occasional drink. If it's between making moonshine and letting their kids starve, they're right to choose moonshine, and you're wrong to judge them."
From page 68 of Sweet Mercy by Ann Tatlock. (Historical Christian fiction)

Do not be a hypocrite. Do not be jealous or speak evil of others.
From I Peter 2:1, (Int'l Children's Bible) non-fiction

Gerard's:
Your brother eats us out of house and hone and smashes up the furniture, and who gets raked over the coals? Me. For selfishly cycling too much.
From page 131 of Big Brother by Lionel Shriver.

And with that, she marched out the door of her house--her house--cross that she had to explain it all.
From page 11 of Accidents Happen by Louise Millar.

Happy Reading!
