Teaser Tuesday



Gerard's:

And watching the two vehicles cut sharp rights onto Schofield, the street the graveyard entrance was on, I felt my legs buckling, collapsing beneath me.  I dropped first to my knees, then to all fours, the shock of certainty hitting me:  Nica was dead.
From page 15 of Dark Rooms by Lili Anolik (click link to see my review)

I wish I had a way to talk to him, to ask why he came, to tell him no one is going to help him here.  I don't think it's right to watch these people suffer, even if it's a suffering they have chosen.
 From page 10 of Find Me by Laura Van Den Berg.  (Review posted tomorrow.)

Karen's

I never forgot my mother's words about Lisa feeling unhappy and thinking she'd never feel happy again.  I thought about that every time I counseled a depressed kid.  I thought about it every time I felt unhappy, reminding myself I would one day be happy again.

From page 50 of The Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlain. (Great book, see my review)

Like a black thunderbolt the bull charged, the rush of his great body shaking the earth and stirring up a sudden gust of wind.  Alec twisted away to avoid the horns seeking his flesh.
From page 40 of The Black Stallion Mystery by Walter Farley.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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 four of these teasers sound really good! Especially 'The Silent Sister' sounds really interesting, although the teaser from 'Dark Rooms' is very sad as well! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great week!

  6. Great teasers! Dark Rooms is really the one that stands out to me most though :)

  7. Dark Rooms: What a vivid description of the shock felt by the character. That's a great example of "show, don't tell."
    Silent Sister: I like this character already!
    More books to add to my TBR collection.
