Teaser Tuesday

Roy had some trouble screwing the silencer onto the end of the gun.  It wouldn't thread right.  Martin Shine watched him with those magnified eyes.

From page 16 of Shaker by Scott Frank.

One night, he said, the kids were going from his house to his mother's house a couple of hundred yards away in a field.  It was dark and some of them had said they were afraid, and Nyblom had said, "How about I fire a few gunshots into the air so it will feel like home?"
From page 17 of Hope--a School, a Team, a Dream by Bill Reynolds.

What did she want from him?  A wave of panic overcame him suddenly.
From page 23 of The Forgetting Time by Sharon Guskin.


"I want to go home."  It was something he said in times of distress since he was a toddler.  It had been his first full sentence.  She always answered in the same way:  "You are home."
"I want my mama."
"I'm here, baby."
He looked away from her.  "Not you.  I want my other mother."
"I'm your mommy, honey."
He turned.  His doleful eyes locked onto hers.  "No, you're not."

From page 34 of The Forgetting Time by Sharon Guskin. (Sorry for the length, but had to get the gist across--the kid is 4 years old)

Bile rose in my throat and panic seized me.  I couldn't go back there--I couldn't lead other girls to that fate at sword point.
From page 16 of Defy by Sara B. Larson.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. 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. What a nice bunch of intriguing teasers. I haven't read any of those books. My teaser this week comes from Dragon's Fire by Anne McCaffrey and Todd McCaffrey. I'm trying to finish this series by reading the books I missed when they were new. Happy reading!

  2. Shaker and The Forgetting Time really catch my interest. Here's my intro and teaser: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1dz

  3. The Forgetting Time was pretty good, wasn't it? I have In Wilderness here ... I'll read it one of these days.

  4. Shaker sounds intense! Very interesting selection.

    My teaser is from A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab
