Teaser Tuesday 10.27.09

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB at 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!


"Devon takes in a shaky breath, wipes her damp forehead on her sleeve. The horrific picture in her mind is still there, that last glimpse."

  1. Eeek what was the last glimpse of?
    My Teaser is up at The Burton Review

  2. Jeez...I wonder what she saw! Thanks for the teaser.

  3. Great tease! I want to know more. Mine is here: http://www.rundpinne.com/2009/10/coppola-pediatric-surgeon-in-iraq.html

  4. Sounds like another great read!

    You are the guest blogger at the cocktail party today! I hope you enjoy it and make some new friends!

  5. That is an intense teaser, and it makes me want to find out more.

  6. I agree, quite intense and dramatic.

    I'm nearly finished with my Josephine Tey, if you have not read her work yet, oh my, you're in for a treat, it was recommended by my sister and her taste is impeccable.

    Every time I see a picture of your cats, I want one, stop that now. ;)

  7. Oh My Goodness, I just added this book to my TBR list last week. Your teaser makes this get closer to being bought immediately. Great teaser.
    Here is mine

  8. Marie Burton: Gotchya, uh?! I would never have guessed what Devon is referring to! This is a great YA book, a quick read that grabs your attention & keeps it.
    Thank you for stopping by!

    Jo-Jo: Interesting, right? You'll be amazed at what Devon means, this is a good book!

    Jennifer: Thanks for coming by! Teasers are fun, right?

    Willoughby: Hi! This is a great YA book, really interesting and very well written!
    Yay, my turn! I will be by soon. I NEED a cocktail...or 10. I'm so sorry I didn't get there yesterday, it was a terrible day here.

    gautami tripathy: Great! It's a riveting story & so well done.
    I loved your teaser, it was so interesting.

    Missy: Thank you, yours is the reaction I hoped for!

    Diane: This book is about a difficult topic and it's written so well. It's YA and it grabs you on page 1 and doesn't let go. I read until I fall asleep, I don't want to put it down!

    Clarity: Just tell me sixe, gender & color and I'll ship a beautiful feline to you today! lol (teasing, I feel terrible for animals who are put on planes) My husband doesn't like me to go to shelters are anywhere cats are up for adoption because I latch on to 5, 6...10 and don't want to leave them.
    Thsank you for the recommendation,. I am going to look Josephine Tey up and read some of her works. I know you have impeccable taste!

    MarceJ: how funny! You won't be disappointed by this book. At times it's tough to stomach & shocking but it's so well written and a captivating read. Enjoy! Thank you for stopping by!

    Great to see you all!
    Happy Reading!
