Teaser Tuesday


Gerard's:

"For Now," Iseult said quietly, "let's worry about getting into the city unseen--and let's pray, too, that the Bloodwitch didn't actually smell your blood."  Or your magic.

From page 25 of Truthwitch by Susan Dennard.



That explained why she'd fallen.  Somehow her leg had gotten snared.  She reached for the wire just as a figure loomed over her.
From page 24 of A Cold War by Alan Russell.

Both:
My heart burned with a fierce kind of anger.  I kicked at the rocks in the ruts, spitting mad just thinking about it.
From pg. 10 of Some Kind of Courage by Dan Gemeinhart.

Karen's:
He simply and finally realized there was no difference between cocaine, alcohol, and the green felt of a craps table.  In AA, he remembered, someone once said switching vices was like being on the titanic and demanding a different deck chair.
From loc. 1118-20 on Kindle from Baby Please Don't Go by Frank Freudberg.


Wobbly, for sure, but it stood.  Then we were struck silent when she kicked it off its fee again.
From page 267 of God's Vitamin "C" For The Spirit compiled by Kathy Collard Miller and D. Larry Miller

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!

  1. I'm very struck by the quote from 'A Cold War' - are you enjoying it? And I also hope you're enjoying 'Truthwitch' - I thought it was a blast, full on and great fun. And I liked the fact that main relationship was between the two girls. This is my offering today...

  5. The only one of these that I've heard of is Truthwitch which is on my TBR mountain. Nice variety of teasers.

    My YA teaser this week comes from Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan. Look for my review on Thursday. Happy reading!

    1. SOME KIND OF COURAGE just came out. It is a children's book but very, very good! We both loved it. It is a tear jerker though, I cried, yelled and screamed when I read the very sad part, but it ends happy.

  6. Y'all chose some great teasers! The one from Baby Please Don't Go was the most appealing to me.
    My Tuesday post features GIRL IN HYACINTH BLUE.
