Teaser Tuesdays: 4 Today

He lets go, and Alex holds her breast, eyes bulging, gasping for breath, hopping from one foot to the other, blind with pain.  The tears come in spite of herself as she says:  "Wh-- wh-- what are you going to do?"
From page 33 of Alex by Pierre Lemaitre.  (My review of this will be up tomorrow (my favorite read for September).

Margret drew the covers up to her chin as the officer's snores continued their unceasing rumble.  One would think an avalanche was approaching, she thought, annoyed.
From page 71 of Burial Rites by Hannah Kent.

"It was my mother, but she pretended she didn't know me.  She said she couldn't be old enough to have had a daughter my age and she laughed at me."
From page 84 of Unfinished Symphony by V. C. Andrews.

Someone can treat our child unfairly and we're ready to pounce.  We almost can't help living by the philosophy:  If you want to make an enemy out of me, just mess with my kid.
From page 92 of David--Seeking a Heart Like His by Beth Moore.

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 (well, we cheat and choose specific ones)
  • 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.   

Happy Reading!
