Tuesday Teasers



Karen's:

My departure years earlier had been remarkable, whispered about for miles around.
One did not leave to marry a German officer as I had--especially if one was Jewish.

From page 24 of The Orphan's Tale by Pam Jenoff.

Gerard's:

I shouldn't have let him in, I shouldn't have let him in, is all I can think as the horror of the whole mess now collapsing around me sinks in.  If I hadn't let him in, I wouldn't have had to face it.
From page 167 of Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough.

Something coming, something powerful and fast.  Not only one thing but many, feet pounding the hard earth--animals or people, Ash couldn't tell which.
From page 7 of Bone Jack by Sara Crowe.

When you're late for your train and you have to get home, and you race down the platform with seconds to spare:  how fast can you run?

What if it isn't a train you're running for, but your life?
From page 112 of I See You by Clare Mackinthosh.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by The Purple Booker.   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 wonder what you'll think of Behind Her Eyes when you get to the end.

  4. Lots of tension in the excerpts from BEHIND HER EYES and BONE JACK. Good writing. I've been wanting to read THE ORPHAN'S TALE, too. Sounds like you've enjoyed some good books this week!
    My Tuesday post features A Thread of Truth.

  5. They all sound good but The Orphan's Tale is the one that pulled me in the most. Definitely like to read that. Here's my link for today's intro and teaser: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1v4
