Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB ofShould 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!

My teaser:

The there was the turning of their doorknob, and bits of Daddy began to slip through – first his hand, then his arm, then the word “Dinner” followed by his mouth, his nose, and finally his eyes, eyes that narrowed sharply when he saw his oldest daughter’s painted lips.

“Why, you little Jezebel!” He spit the word as if it were poison. Mary Sarah couldn’t take her eyes off his.”

Kissing Tennessee and Other Stories from the Stardust Dance by Kathi Appelt (pg. 21-22)

Catherine looked up, her eyes wide with fright. Theresa grabbed for her, but it was too late. The limb came crashing down. Catherine’s body crumbled like a rag doll’s, and she tumbled backward into the chasm.

The Book of Spells by Kate Brian (pg. 206)

What are your Tuesday Teasers? What are you reading?

    • Thanks, Corrine. Kissing Tennessee is a really good book. I should be posting a review in the next day or two. I read it first in middle school and one of the stories had stuck with me till I finally found it again this year (10 years later not even remembering what the book was called). It is really good.

      The Book of Spells by Kate Brian is a sort of Prequel to the Private series by Kate Brian. If you haven’t read this series, I wouldn’t recommend actually starting with the Prequels. They will give away important parts of the plot of the actual series. I love this series though, and if you like YA books, I would highly recommend them.
