Tuesday Teasers: Four Today



Gerard's:

She fills a drink container with enough water to weigh about as much as the baby, and as Adam continues driving and considering the gun, not yet, not yet, not yet, not yet, she rolls that off the edge, too.

From page 9 of Thank You For Your Service by David Finkel.

 He'll be back again and again and again until he finds you.  He'll never leave those wood for good until you're dead.  And then I'll be dragged into it.
From page 34 of Innocence by Dean Koontz.

Karen's
"Somebody came an' she had ter go wiff dem an' she put us down here so nuthin' would happen ter us or nobody fin' me."
"Who came, Emmas...who was it?"
From page 83 (Loc. 1158 on Kindle) of A Day to Pick Your Own Cotton by Michael Phillips.  See review of the 1st book in this series here.  My review of this one will be up tomorrow.
"The day before you give Jenna away," she had said, her hands and voice trembling as she handed me the heirloom, "give this to her for the gift."
I was puzzled by her choice of words.

From page 21 of Timepiece by Richard Paul Evans (my review posted yesterday.)

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.   

Happy Reading!

  2. I always enjoy your Teaser selections and often end up clicking on Amazon to buy one of the books! All of the titles on today's post appeal to me. It's interesting that in both of Gerard's Teasers, the authors used repetition to add tension to the scene.
    My Teaser is from REFLECTIONS OF MAMIE.

  5. The Timepiece teaser was my favorite. I don't have any of your books on the stairs this week.

  6. Gerard's were intriguing for sure.
    Karen, that first one would drive me nuts reading the dialect. The latter however sounds beautiful! I love weddings!

  7. An interesting selection of teasers. I especially liked the oen for Innocence -- it's been a long time since I read something by Koontz. I'm teasing a rom-suspense this week: The Widow
