  • Well, it’s a good thing I got 2 books in the mail yesterday because I finished my current read last night.  Here’s a teaser from a brand new book that I am going to review. 

    “Oh, yeah, this cool cat live here, or maybe the next house up, I can’t really remember.  Older guy; I think his name is Lew.  I was having bad flashbacks from acid, and it was weird, he kinda put me in a sorta trance and waved his hands over me.” Walking Through Walls, Philip Smith, p. 108

    Teaser Tuesdays – 11/11

    TEASER 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.

  • This week my teaser comes from The Diamond of Darkhold by Jeanne DuPrau.  This is the fourth Book of Ember, and I’m so excited to be reading this as it will bring closure to the series for me.  

    “Trogg seemed to think that he knew everything, but strangely enough, it was exactly this that made him seem stupid to Doon.  A person who thought he knew everything simply didn’t understand how much there was to know.” (p. 120, Diamond of Darkhold, Jeanne DuPrau)

    Not the best “teaser,” but hey, when you say let the book fall open to any random page, you get what you get!  I hope that at least maybe this sparks your interest about this series.  It really is a good one.  Check it out!

  • Unfortunately for me, I am still in the same book from last week, so my Teaser Tuesday is again from The House on Tradd Street.  This has been a slow reading week for me because of everything else going on.  Can you say, “Life get outta my way?”  Maybe then I could just read.  I plan to today!  Here is my teaser for you:

    He gave an exaggerated sigh.  “You remember how I asked you if you could just ask the ghosts your questions and let them answer?  And you said something like it’s not that easy?”  p. 272, The House on Tradd Street by Karen White.

    I am enjoying this book, just wishing I had more time to read.  Look for my review of this on Nov. 14th, thanks to Pump Up Your Book Promotion.  Check out the other teasers at Should Be Reading.
