3 Tuesday Teasers


Gerard's:
I'm the platoon medic.  But most of all, I'm an American.  And when the bells sounds, I will come out fighting for my country and for my teammates.

From page 7 of Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell.

Then he saw Cheri's head, snagged on a piece of driftwood:  her freckled face, abbreviated nose, eyes spaced too wide to be pretty.  Stuffed into the hollow of the tree were the rest of Cheri's pieces, her skin etched with burns and amateur tattoos.
 
From page 4 of The Weight of Blood by Laura McHugh(My review will be up tomorrow.)


Karen's
But she trusted him, right?  So, why did her finger hover over the enter key, hesitating?
Because another girl had disappeared and her dad was worried she might be next.
From Loc. 740 (Ch. 6) of Too Close to Home by Lynette Eason.


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. LONE SURVIVOR and TOO CLOSE TO HOME sound like books I'd read, but THE WEIGHT OF BLOOD sounds too gory... unless that's just an isolated passage. All your Teasers definitely grabbed me!
    My Teaser is from SEVEN LITTLE WORDS.

    1. Gerard told me the whole book isn't that gory so it must just be certain parts.

    1. Ha, ha, you are right. This last line was left over from last week's when I had two but this week I only had one and forgot to delete the book from last week's. I deleted it now thought that you pointed it out. Thanks.
