Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

  1. I’m intrigued! Is this about football?

    My teaser at arch thinking.

    • I really liked The Zookeeper’s wife (answer to your question on my blog – yes, Balls by Nanci Kincaid is about football; Nanci has been married to one football coach . . . and is now married to another football coach).
      Your site wouldn’t accept my WordPress identification . . . so answering here . . .

  2. Here is my teaser from “The Lodestone Book One: The Sea of Storms” by Mark Whiteway (Prologue):

    It was early in the afternoon, when Kal first saw the flying rock.

    Well, perhaps “flying” was a slight exaggeration; a subtle embellishment that he might have used later when trying to impress his younger brother, or his friends after third-day prayers. It was a least enough to break Kal out of his reverie. Hymarr’s reaction was the last thing he had expected.

    He has been rehearsing in his mind for days beforehand how he would ask her to accompany him to the Spring Gratitude Service. That morning, as he lay in his bedchamber, before even Ali-Gan, the yellow sun, has risen over the western horizon, he determined that today was going to be the day.

  3. Oh sounds like it is a fun, different book.

    Stop by and check out my Reading Bucket List Challenge for 2011. It is in the works but I welcome suggestions.
