Tuesday Teasers

Both Gerard & Karen reading these:

Two from Five Days Left by Julie Lawson Timmer

The boy's mother, her face impassive in the studied manner of someone trying not to react, grabbed a package of paper towels from her cart and ripped them open as she walked toward Mara, her son in tow.  "Don't stare," the woman whispered. (Gerard's from page 10)
Mara had chosen the method long ago:  pills, Vodka and carbon monoxide.  A "garage cocktail," she called it.  (Karen's - first line of the book!) 

Two from (large print edition), of Heaven Sent Rain by Lauraine Snelling:

Taking a small boy's mother!  What kind of a God are You, anyway?  What happened to grace and mercy?  (Karen's from page 146)
 She slowed, trying to decide what to do.  I don't have time for this today.  (Gerard's from page 7)
Raptors were just raptors, building nests, mating and hunting and sounding their territorial calls with no hidden agenda.
Still, I couldn't help feeling that on this night, sweet with spring's promise, the screech owls were laughing at us.
From page 7 of Wild Within--How Rescuing Owls Inspired a Family by Melissa Hart

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 pick two sentences from the book you are reading.

Happy Reading!


  1. Five Days Left is everywhere! I haven't read it yet.

  2. Karen's teaser from Five Day's left caught my attention. Nice.

  6. Very interesting choices! Love your photo at the top with the cats. Kinda looks like the one on the right is telling the one on the left to leave the books alone! :-)
