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.
“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.”
“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.
