Tuesday Teasers: "Night Road" and "The Lincoln Lawyer"

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 do the following
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on  that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away!   You don’t  want  to  ruin the  book for others!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can  add the book to their TBR  Lists  if they  like your teaser. 
Jude tried to find a smile again and couldn't. Maybe God had designed senior year so that mothers like her could let their children leave home. If this kept up, it would be easier than she'd thought.
From pg. 108 of Night Road by Kristin Hannah

"This is incredible," Roulet said. "To have to sit here and listen to this. I can't believe what has happened to me. I DID NOT do this. This is like a dream. She is lying!"
From page 132 of The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly

Just wondering if you actually choose your teasers at random as in the instructions or do you cheat and look for something good?  I admit, we usually cheat and do some hand picking.

  1. Great teasers. Michael Connelley is great and I have a couple of books by Kristen Hannah but haven't had a chance to get to them.

  2. Wow. I like your teasers, I need to check these out. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  3. The Lincoln Lawyer is being added to my TBR as I write.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  4. Night Road is one of my favourites of the year so far.

    I highlight great teasers as I read then go back and choose one.

  5. Hi!
    The word wasn't gobling but simply globin, typing error ;-)

    When I choose my teaser I usually pick a random page and then I search for a good line that won't give too much away.
    Thanks for stopping by :-)

  7. Sounds more like a nightmare than a dream.

  8. Great teasers. I just watched The Lincoln Lawyer movie last night and now I definitely have to get the book.

  9. Love Kristen Hannah! Thanks for stopping by!

  10. That doesn't sound like a dream to me. I'd call it a nightmare.

  11. OH no... I've been in one too many senior moment myself ;)

    for the second teaser... Sounds like someone is going to have to defend themselves mighty well against her LIES. Good luck!

  12. I randomly choose a page but then I look for something good!

    I am looking forward to reading The Lincoln Lawyer!


Thanks for commenting and happy reading!
