Tuesday Teasers: Two This Week


Gerard's:
Yet, in the mania of the moment, she holds tight to the concept of the blindfold.  No matter what tools she might pack, no matter what household object might be used as a weapon, she knows that the blindfolds are their strongest protection.

From page 5 of Bird Box by Josh Malerman. (I read this last week but liked it so much, wanted to share a teaser from it.  Click link for my review.)

It was like the gun had gone off.  There I was, naked, having just wagged my fifty-three-year-old ass, and there he was, somewhere behind me, knowing what I had been about to do, confessing to an affair with a woman in his office who was almost young enough to be our daughter.

From page 3 of We are Called to Rise by Laura McBride.


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. None from me this week because I'm busy helping with sports camp at our church all day - too tired to read when I get home and have to prepare for next day. Nice to know you missed mine though.

  2. Two interesting teasers, though those blindfolds most intrigue me. Mine: The Swiss Family Robinson
