Teaser Tuesday - May 11, 2010

Don't forget to post your teaser in the comments.
We want to know what you are reading!

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:

"She could see sincerity there, but could not believe it was real, not yet. She was plagued by the ache and disloyalty of his actions, unable to understand how and why it ever happened."

Torn Apart by Diony George, page 66

Sheila's Teaser:

"Lost in the past, he was startled by a hideous scream. A man in line to be sacrificed, possibly a Lemuelite from the borders, had awoken from his drugged stupor and realized his horrific fate. The screams of his mortal terror were unnerving to even a hardened warrior like Anathoth. He did not enjoy the spectacle that pleased so many of his people. This was not
a way for a man to die, nor a way for a man to kill."

Heroes of the Fallen by David J. West

Hillary's Teaser:

"The Lord as well as His prophet-fathers found joy in the successes of their children and they sorrowed when the children failed. Doing so is not only a natural response, but reinforces the lesson for the child, and reminds us of the boundaries we must respect in letting our children use their agency. We cannot hold ourselves overly responsible for their choices."

The Book of Mormon: A Pattern for Parenting by Geri Brinley, page 164

Mindy's Teaser:

"Juliet, I hear your sister is a cheerleader."

"Yeah, she is."

"So I imagine she was helpful when you wrote this."

She held up a copy of my cheer. Was she actually accusing me of cheerleading plagiarism?

Being Sixteen by Allyson Braithwaite Condie, page 77
