Tuesday Teasers: 4 For You


Gerard's:
I saw parts of myself in nearly all of them, and each time I did I felt angrier and sadder, if a bit less lonesome.  We were the fools who were never supposed to meet, the very opposite of a conspiracy, who'd worked together for his betterment, oblivious and separate.

From page 92 of Blood Will Out--The True Story of a Murder, a Mystery, and a Masquerade by Walter Kirn 


He waited another moment, and then leaped at my nose.  I caught him mid-jump.  His teeth were sharp enough to draw blood and I did not want to spoil this sort-of-almost-hallowed moment of bestoing a name.

From page 26 of The Dog That Talked to God by Jim Kraus(Click link to see my review.)


Karen's
Why isn't she talking?  She should say something, anything, but Charlotte's holding her hand so tightly between hers; she's clinging to Eve and it's all Eve can do to stand beside her best friend as the police thunder up and down the stairs, tromp through all the rooms..
From page 71 of The Deepest Secret by Carla Buckley.


"This could be an isolated incident, like a bad dream, or indicative of a psychotic episode," Judy explained.  "I've seen it before in some people as they age."
From page 38 of I Will Never Forget by Elaine C. Pereira.

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!

  5. Four good teasers, but the third one (from The Deepest Secret) grabbed me. Why are the police tromping up and down the stairs? And why aren't the best friends saying anything?
    My Teaser is from MILLSTONE.
