Teaser Tuesday


Gerard's:

I couldn't make a sign or a sound to let anyone know I'd become aware again.  I was invisible--the ghost boy.

From page x of Ghost Boy--the miraculous escape of a misdiagnosed boy trapped inside his own body by Martin Pistorius.



Suddenly, the Honda's back end skidded, kicking the car onto the slightest angle.  The skid lasted no more than a second or two, but it was enough time for Billy to watch his entire life pass before the rain-smudged windshield.
From page 11 of The Changing Season by Steven Manchester.

Karen's:

Into that silence came The Voice.  Without warning, inhuman, penetrating. . . ."Ladies and gentlemen!  Silence please!"
Everyone was startled.  They looked round--at each other, at the walls.  Who was speaking?
From page 46 of And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie.  (Review up tomorrow)

If you're in a period of calm tiredness, the easiest way to return to the peak efficiency of calm energy may be to take a brisk walk.  According to Thayer, walking for about ten minutes boosts energy levels and keeps them at a heightened state for at least an hour.
From page 175 of BRAIN--The Complete Mind:  How id develops, How it works, and How to keep it sharp by Michael S. Sweeney.

"Well, as a general rule, most women, before they've got 'em, present to their men smiling, agreeing faces.  They hide their thoughts.  You now, when you're feeling hateful, honey, you are hateful."
From page 15 of Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee.

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!

  3. All the books sound good, but I was watching a show on TV and Harper Lee's book was the topic and it has me curious. Happy reading.

    1. So far I'm disappointed in the Harper Lee book. It starts out very slow and I really liked Scout a lot in TO KILL A MOCKING BIRD but not so much in this one so far. I hope it gets better!

    1. I was bored with the Watchman so switched to THE FORGETTING TIME and liking that better. I'll go back to the Watchman later though, maybe after I read DEFY.--Karen
