Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by Miz B from Should Be Reading. Here are the rules just in case you’re intrigued enough to join.
- Grab your current read/s.
- Open to a random page.
- Share “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page (I deleted the ‘two sentences’ bit since I tend to include more than two sentences, truth be told).
- 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!
I usually share several teasers from three of the books that I am currently reading. Same goes for this week.
Looking for Alaska by John Green
“… our time together is short. I must talk and you must listen, for we are engaged here in the most important pursuit in history: the search for meaning. What is the nature of being a person? What is the best way to go about being a person? How did we come to be, and what will become of us when we are no longer? In short: what are the rules of this game and how might we best play it?” The nature of the labyrinth, I scribbled into my spiral notebook, and the way out of it. This teacher rocked. (p. 43)
The Firefly Letters: A Suffragette’s Journey to Cuba by Margarita Engle
I feel like a young girl again, unmarried and skinny, with a flat belly that has never known the kick of an impatient baby so eager to be born into this world of confusion (p. 24)
The Bones of Makaidos by Bryan Davis
She stared at the stub on her hand, bandaged and still damp with blood. She was wrong. The suffering had begun all over again, worse than ever, and she was back in the clutches of her never-ending nightmare. And who could rescue her this time? (p. 290)
