Teaser Tuesday (TT4)

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!

Book: Ghosts and Echoes - A Shadow Inquiries Novel
Author: Lyn Benedict

"You always say the same damn things. I've got a short attention span."

He pushed a chair out toward her, it's wooden feet screeking across the pale linoleum, leaving marks. "Sit."

Wrong way to get my attention, she thought. But, he couldn't know how deep disobedience ran in her blood. (page 176)

Book: The Starlet
Author: Mary McNamara

"Juliette, my darling," he said without greeting or preamble, as if they had just spoken the day before. "I had grandiose plans that involved a white horse and an enormous number of roses, but everyone around me is either an idiot or nineteen years old and a non-English speaker. And now I'm afraid you will have to come to me. Because Mercy Talbot overdosed last night." (page 59)

Until next read,


  1. Nice teasers! I've been wanting to read "The Starlet", and reading that snippet makes me want to read it more! It sounds quite good, and I LOVE the cover.

    Check out my teasers: http://wordsonpaperya.blogspot.com/2010/07/teaser-tuesday-2.html

  2. He sure rubbed her the wrong way.

    Mine's here.

  3. Both books sound great. The first sounds sort of similar to my book this week. My teaser is from Blood Song by Cat Adams.

  4. Happy Tuesday! I just love this meme! I get to see so many great books. Have a great week, happy reading. Stop by at The Wormhole to see mine!

  5. Loving you teasers and became a follower! Hope you will also check out My Teaser. Also wanted to give you a heads up about my amazing news that my debut novel is being released Friday the 13th this August. Hope you will check out the announcement or my second tab.

  7. Good teasers! I think disobedience runs in my blood too.
