Teaser Tuesday


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!





My teaser comes from "The Lady's Slipper" by Deborah Swift.

She caught a glimpse of her hands, stained yellow, small cuts dribbling dark red blood, before she grabbed her paintbox and threw it with all her might across the room.  It rebounded with a crack against the window before falling to the floor, its hinges broken and the porcelain jars in pieces.  Page 146

  3. Very good teaser. I will check it out. Looking at all those teassers only makes my tbr pile longer! So many books, so less time to read, so less space to keep!

    Here is my Teaser Tuesday: Out At Night by Susan Arnout Smith post!
