Tuesday Teasers: 3 This Week


Gerard's:
At the end of the last street, past a forgotten cornfield and the ruin of a barn, sat the house that I was supposed to call "home." 
My father wanted me to remember the house.

From page 8 of The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson


However many crimes I'd committed already that morning, I'd done it all for a very good reason, and it must be said that they faded into insignificance next to the thought that I was abducting my brother.
From page 1 of She is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick. (My review will be up tomorrow)
Karen's:
Down the hallway, I went into a large closet, otherwise known as a Manhattan home office, and shredded the script I'd written to fool my daughter.  I sifted the confetti through my fingers and let out a breath as I heard Emma start to sob.

From page 10 of Now You See Her by James Patterson.  

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!

    1. You're right! I just started reading his books because a lady at the nursing home we visit recommended him to me. So far both the ones I read by him I really liked. NOW YOU SEE HER is hard to put down. I hope finish it tonight or for sure tomorrow. I'm anxious to see how it ends.

    1. That's what I thought too until I found out her reasons. Then I really couldn't blame her. Really good! The woman is actually nice and has a good relationship with her daughter.

  5. All three of your teasers intrigue me. I especially like the title - The Impossible Knife of Memory.
    My Teaser is from PATTY JANE'S HOUSE OF CURL.

  7. The teaser from Now You See her is a good one... so why was it necessary to fool the daughter I wonder?

    1. Her father is a psychopath and doesn't know she exists. The daughter, of course, is curious about her father so lies abound.

  8. Nice assortment of teasers. The first two book are on my wishlist. My teasers this week are from Caged Warrior by Alan Sitomer and Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris. Happy reading!
