"Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading."
Here's how to play:
- Grab your current read.
- Open to a random page.
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
- Share the title & author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
DO NOT INCLUDE SPOILERS! You don’t want to ruin the book for others.
"I know I hadn't envisioned an apple-shaped woman in a Kiss My Asphalt T-shirt, with wind-burned cheeks and a sagging tattoo of a phoenix on her arm. But what I really didn't bargain for was a brief hug, followed by a forceful shove that had me landing firmly on my butt on the cold, black-and-white checked floor of my hall bathroom."
And from 36 Arguments for the Existence of God by Rebecca Newberger Goldstein:
"The world shifted, catching lots of smart people off guard, churning up issues you had thought had settled forever beneath the earth's crust. The more sophisticated you are, the more annotated your mental life, the more taken aback you're likely to feel, seeing what the world's lurch has brought to light, thrusting up beliefs and desires you had assumed belonged to an earlier stage of human development."
You can put your teasers in the comments section--or you can post them on your own blog and put a link in the comments.
