Tardy Teasers & General Insanity

This week life has kicked into full gear. With Sheila grading papers like a crazy woman, Hillary being forced to work overtime with all the snow back east, and me planning a big baby shower while putting together activities for class parties this Friday, we've been unable to post much this week.

Now that shower invitations have been delivered, I have a brief moment to post our teasers. (Thanks for missing us, Joyce. You are so sweet!)

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

Shanda's Teaser:

"Despite the introduction of physical and spiritual death and its consequences, the Fall is seen as the commencement of Heavenly Father's plan of salvation. This commencement is a great blessing to all of mankind. This blessing included the obtaining of physical bodies of flesh and bone, the prospect to choose between good and evil, and the opportunity to take full advantage of the Atonement and Resurrection of Jesus Christ."

Catholic Roots, Mormon Harvest by Eric Shuster, page 65

Sheila's Teaser:

"What has happened to me? Where am I? What is all this?" Constance raised her hands in the air.

Liz spoke slowly. still hoping this was a joke, but her heart pounded with the knowledge that, though something weird was happening, it was a real something weird. "You're in the- future. 1852 was like a gazillion years ago..."

Hillary's Teaser:

Damon leaned forward. "What are you hiding from me, Maggie?"

She glanced quickly back at Damon. "What do you mean?" she said, trying to sound puzzled and look innocent.

He frowned and shook his head. "Don't ever lie to me, and don't try to keep anything from me, little sister."
