Gloria lurched out of the bathroom, a matching hole in her stomach, a bloody hunting knife in her hand, a knife she noticed as if for the first time and then threw against the wall with what must have been her last burst of strength, because in the same motion her legs gave out. When they did, it was Jule's neck she slung her slippery arms around and Jule's shuddering body she dragged to the floor.From page 12 of The Waking Dark by Robin Wasserman. Loved this!
I am equally effective with girls and guys, but girls create another level of difficulty. More emotion, more problems.From page 55 of Boy Nobody by Allen Zadoff.
Katya didn't know what to do any more than I did. I felt like my wife, sent on an errand to the auto parts store to choose a high performance carburetor for a '68 Camaro.From page 49 of To Sing Frogs--A memoir by John M. Simmons (Advance Review Copy, Uncorrected Proof)
Confessing wrong thoughts stops sin in the first stages, before it comes out of our mouths and then directs our actions. If I allow God to halt sin before it takes one step out of my mind into word or deed, the only person hurt will be me.From page 153 of DAVID--Seeking a Heart Like His by Beth Moore.
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.
