Teaser Tuesdays

A few weeks ago, I visited the blog of Patricia Woodside and by reading her post for that Tuesday I learned about something called “Teaser Tuesdays.” The concept was started by MizB, host of the blog Should Be Reading, and particpating is simple—everyone is welcome to join in on the fun. Here is how it works:

• Grab your current read

• Open to a random page

• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page (in the comments below or via a link to your own blog.)

• 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 and author, too, so that other Tuesday Teaser participants can add the book to their “to be read” lists if they like your teasers!

I’ll go ahead and get us started with two teasers from the books I’m reading now.

My first Teaser Tuesday is from page 110 of Patti Lacy’s book, What the Bayou Saw.

“Her parents didn’t seem to hear the knock, but Sally did. A real estate agent was expected; not a moment too soon. Spending seven days with a two-year-old in a cramped, windowless motel room had reduced Sally’s life to boxes, sacks, suitcases, and smelly diapers.”

Okay, here’s my second one. It’s taken from page 123 of DiAnn Mill’s book, Breach of Trust.

“Miles picked up a large coffee at the doughnut shop and headed to his truck. He swung a glance toward Eleanor’s beauty shop. Yep, there was Paige’s car. She stepped out and hobbled to the rear door to pull out her crutches. She sure could do great things with a pair of crutches.”

I hope you guys will play along and share a few teasers from the book(s) you’re reading.

  2. Hi Carol, thanks for the teasers today. 🙂

  3. “I thought the more I sacrificed, the more I loved Jesus. The more hours I put in for God’s work, the more committed to his cause. I wanted to make my God proud, and I did a great job at it. The only problem? God wasn’t my God. My pride was my god.”

    “Man’s choices don’t change who God is. The words echoed through her mind as the starling flew out of sight behind a cluster of trees. Maybe that was true, but why didn’t God intervene more often to stop Man’s wrong choices?”

    Lisa Harris’s “Blood Ransom,” p. 84

  4. Sarah, thanks for stopping by to play along and provide us with your book teasers!

  5. The Naked Now, Richard Rohr
    “A second group tries a different approach. They choose to whistle in the dark, look the other way, or just keep busy–seeking various ways of being important, or as Jesus put it, trying to “build bigger barns.”

  6. Patti, what a great teaser! Thanks for sharing it!
