Teaser Tuesday

We all looked up when they entered the barn, a young man carrying a pistol, followed by a short blond girl in braids and a pink hat.  They were both haggard.
From page 22 of Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys.


A woman who was also on the list was giving birth to a baby.  As soon as the umbilical cord was cut, they would both be thrown into the truck.
From page 15 of Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys. 

Everyone was very kind and trying to stop me from seeing his body, but I couldn't tell them I was glad he was gone.  No more of his nonsense.
From page 3 of The Widow by Fiona Barton.

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. The Widow was pretty good. I've been meaning to read Salt to the Sea.

  2. From a glance at the books, none jumped out at me, but your teases caught my attention. Good choices.

  3. Great assortment of teasers. This week it is an historical romance - Luck Is No Lady by Amy Sandas - on my adult blog. Happy reading!

  4. Loved Between Shades of Gray and plan to read Salt to the Sea.

    1. Gerard is reading BETWEEN SHADES OF GRAY and likes it even better than SALT TO THE SEA which he liked a lot!

  5. All three of these are books I want to read. I haven't yet read anything by Ruta Sepetys, but I keep hearing good things about her work. The Widow is on my immediate TBR pile. I hope to get to that one soon-ish.

  6. Three great Teasers! I'm curious about the woman on the list who would be thrown into the truck with her baby (thrown?) and what kind of nonsense would make a woman be glad someone was dead?
    My Tuesday post features a mystery thriller: THE SHADOW CARTEL.

  7. As ever, a wide range of genre and styles in your selection:). The Widow tease was particularly intriguing. My TT this week is all about running away from demons - https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2016/04/05/teaser-tuesday-5th-april-2016/

  8. All great teasers! I've been thinking of picking up Salt to the Sea and The Widow! Hope they're awesome reads, thanks for sharing!
