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:
Rodney ran through his memory of the shooting, over and over and over again. He still couldn't believe it happened over a girl.
From page 34 of A Chance To Win--Boyhood, Baseball, and the Struggle for Redemption in the Inner City by Jonathan Schuppe. (non-fiction)

But this person might have a wild son who murders people. This son may do any of these other bad things.
From Ezekiel 18:10 (International Children's Bible)

Gerard's:

LaVander Peeler got even closer to me. The boy smelled like fried tomatoes, buttered cornbread, and peppermint.
From page 12 of Long Division by Kiese Laymon. (Lots of offensive language in this, just started it but dumping in the dud pile.)

"But I thought we were in heaven," I said, not quite sarcastically, instantly aware of the contradiction and smiling inwardly. "Why would anybody need lawyers in paradise?"
From page 55 of The Trial of Fallen Angels by James Kimmel, Jr. (Review will be up tomorrow)

Happy Reading!
