Teaser Tuesdays

teasertuesdays2TEASER 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!


“In China, doctors are detectives of the soul.”  Then Sung leaned forward and said, “Hold your arm out.”

from The Stone Monkey by Jeffery Deaver, Chapter 19

Go ahead.  Tease me.

    From “March” by Geraldine Brooks: “The bales had been hauled down to the landing more than a week ago, but too much gunboat activity on the river made it impossible for a steamer to fetch them away, and every day that passed we feared a visit from the irregulars, who love nothing more than to see the labor of months set swiftly alight, or else bales slashed and spilled into the river.”

    I’m interested to find out what you think after you’ve finished.

    I love this idea! Glad I found your blog! Here’s mine (although it’s three sentences…hope that’s OK!):

    The press had an absolute field day with the president’s order. The New York Times vowed to correct Roosevelt’s “freak” spellings as if they were typos. The Baltimore Sun asked if the president would now spell his name Rusevelt, or whether he’d “get down to the fact and spell it ‘butt-in-sky.'”

    Righting the Mother Tongue: From Olde English to Email, the Tangled Story of English Spelling by David Wolman (chapter 7, p. 115)

    Glad you came by. This sounds like a very intersting book. I might have to write it on my library list 🙂 Thanks!
