Tuesday Teasers


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.   
Gerard's:
Aliens had landed, they were not friendly, half of the planet was dead.
They were horrifyingly fast, traveling across the globe at an alarming pace.
From page 9 of In The After by Demitria Lunetta. (My review will be posted tomorrow.)

Uncle Tinsley looked at the two of us for a long moment, then leaned the shotgun against the wall. "You can sleep in the barn."
From page 53 of The Silver Star by Jeannette Walls (Large print edition)

Karen's:
Her veins buzzed with adrenaline, leaving her shaky in its wake. She hated this.
From page 33 of Barefoot Summer by Denise Hunter.

By the way, I'm giving up on Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.  It's so boring to me, I can't take it anymore!  I know, people love this book, but it just puts me to sleep--seriously, I doze off every time I read it!  Am I the only one who found this book terribly boring and hard to read?

Happy Reading!

  4. Don't give up on P&P!!!! I hated it the first time I read it and then I loved it ever after! Have you seen the BBC miniseries? It could be that I always picture Mr. Darcy as Colin Firth...

  5. Awesome teasers! I feel the same way about Pride & Prejudice. I tried reading it a couple times but I can never finish it. It's too boring for me. I didn't even like the movie all that much either.

    1. I'm sure I wouldn't like the movie either! Glad there's at least someone else who shares my opinion about this one.

  6. Barefoot Summer sounds like one I might like. Sorry to hear you are giving up on P&P. And, unlike Mei, I actually prefer the Keira Knightly movie over the BBC miniseries (sorry, Mei, but the BBC's Mrs. Bennett sounded like Miss Piggy, which kept throwing me out of the time period). My teaser: Sleeping With the Entity
