Teaser Tuesdays: Five Today!


Gerard's:
  
"The EG machine picked up the same electrical flare in the cortex that occurs with an uninjured brain."
"So he is thinking?" 
"Yes.  But he's trapped within his skull." 

From page 13 of SPARK by John Twelve Hawks. (Just finished this last week but it's so good, I wanted to do a teaser from it-- click link to see my review)

But I couldn't do it.  I couldn't move forward, couldn't take the one step and then another that it would require of me..
From page 23 of the fragile world by Paula Treick DeBoard.
.
Karen's: 
Here he was, an Amish kid plucked right off the farm, pitching for a professional baseball team.  Who had ever heard of such a thing? 
From page 13 (Loc. 133-34 on Kindle)
and here's another from the same book because it was hard to choose just one:

She wasn't ready to be a parent, but she was thrust into that role when her father died.  She decided this must be what it felt like to tuck an octopus into bed.  An arm or two kept popping out.  From page 60 (Loc. 756-57 on Kindle)

Both teasers from The Choice (Lancaster County Secrets Book #1) by Suzanne Woods Fisher.

Not only was it never too late to do something beautiful for God but it was also never too late to do something more beautiful for God.  In this quote, we find Mother Teresa teaching us always to be on the lookout for new ways to serve God, whether by actions we had not previously considered or by serving poor and destitute individuals of whom we had not previously been aware.
From Loc. 623-25 on Kindle of Mother Teresa:  A Life Inspired by Wyatt North.

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!

  2. All are great teasers! Gerard's stood out the most to me though, "He's trapped within his skull?" How so?

  3. I think I read The Choice... which I know I would have loved. I really enjoy Suzanne's books.
    I'm curious about the Mother Teresa book as well. She is an icon, after all.
