Teaser Tuesday

January 13, 2009

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!
  • My two teasers:

    “The breeze looks away- almost embarrassed at having watched- and I’m left there, standing. Alone.” pg 26

    I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak

    This was really hard to find because of Zusak’s choppy style. Many sentences are one or two words long, which makes flow of the writing always interesting, but difficult to quote in Tuesday Teasers.

      You’re teaser has me imagining line breaks and reading as though it were poetry.

      You picked a good teaser — even if it was difficult to find.

      “Don’t you think they’d check if stolen goods suddenly reappeared and they still had no suspect? Returning the goods is a mitigating factor, but doesn’t erase the fact that you committed a crime.” p.190

      Don’t Hex With Texas by Shanna Swendson

      He must have been trying a different writing style with that book; since I didn’t sense any choppiness with his “The Book Thief” a book I recently read and loved. Interesting teaser!

      Your hard searching resulted in a wonderful Teaser! Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks for sharing the teaser! Isn’t it funny – I sometimes have to look harder for a teaser as I want it to be a good representation of the book.
