Belated Teaser Tuesday - April 14, 2010

I took the day "off" yesterday (it was my birthday and I spent it at the spa with my sister getting our first facials- it was so relaxing!) which means that Teaser Tuesday is technically Teaser Wednesday. Enjoy, and don't forget to leave a teaser from your current read for us in the comments below!

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:

"First, we learn that Ishmael had five daughters who were of marriageable age (see 1 nephi 7:6). Second, there was no murmuring like there was on the first journey to retrieve the brass plates. Apparently, bringing back a family full of eligible maidens was much more appealing to the sons of Lehi than imploring Laban for the brass plates (see 1 nephi 7:1–4)."

Women of the Book of Mormon by Heather B. Moore, page 13

Sheila's Teaser:

"Yes child, what is the matter? You look distressed," said Suor Annunziata with concern etched on her forehead.

"I'm fine, but I need to ask you something important to me. Were you at the orphanage when I was born there?"

Suor Annunziatia's face lost it's look of concern and became shadowed. "It was a long time ago cara. What did Madre Maria tell you?"

"Nothing. Absolutely nothing. there may not even be a record of my birth parent's names in the file. Do you remember who they were? Do you know anything about my past that can help me find them?"

Daughter of Mine By Laura Fabiani, page 60

Hillary's Teaser:

"As victims of this be-all, do-all mentality, we have fallen prey to three harmful myths: 1) SUPERMEN and superwomen are real, 2) any job worth doing is worth doing well, and 3) spending time on yourself is a selfish, superficial use of time."

Simply Sane by Debbie Bowen, page 5

Mystery Guest's Teaser:

"And there was that dream she'd had a few weeks ago--she'd been dressed in a ragged wedding gown (a la Miss Havisham of "Great " fame), dancing alone in a dark house, waiting for Mr. Darcy to come for her."

Austenland by Shannon Hale, page 7

Wondering what's with this "Mystery Guest's Teaser"? Come back tomorrow- we'll be making a big announcement!


  1. Thank you for sharing a teaser from Laura Fabiani's book! I've heard a lot about this novel and loved reading a little excerpt.

    And a belated Happy Birthday to Shanda! (I presume it was Shanda's birthday, since she's the one who posted this?)

  2. Thank you, Joyce :). It was a good day!
