Teaser Tuesday (20)

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!

 
The Book of Tomorrow: A Novel
 The Book of Tomorrow by Cecelia Ahern


“Dad was more into last impressions than first ones, which makes his death all the more symbolic.  I was the opposite.  Just as I’d given Barbara an easy to way leave me by making bitchy remarks to her, I’d done the same to my mum and dad all my life.  I make it easier for people to leave by making them hate me a little.”



Pg. 99

  1. Aww…that’s actually kind of sad. They should be concentrating on keeping them close not giving an easy out….curious now to to exactly what’s going on. It’s in my TBR pile so I’ll be delving into soon. Thanks for the tease…and happy reading!

  2. Here is my teaser from Lipstick in Afghanistan by Roberta Gately (Page 1):

    “Do you hear it?” The voice was almost a whisper.

    Elsa held her breath, and then she heard it too, a faint rustling of footsteps over twigs and leaves. Out of the corner of her eye, she glimpsed several shadowy figures darting through the trees, and when she turned, she saw a glint of sunlight reflecting off the barrel of an assault rifle.

    There was no denying it—the Taliban had found them.

    Oh, Jesus! she thought. We’ll never escape.

    Elsa knew the Taliban’s ruthless hatred; the death and destruction they wrought was undeniable.

    Seized by a sickening wave of fear, she wanted to cry or throw up, but there was no time. She tried to catch Parween’s eye, but her friend was looking back, intent on finding the source of the sound.

    “Run!” someone shouted, and suddenly, the chase was on.
