Teaser Tuesdays

TEASER TUESDAYS is hosted by MizB (Should Be Reading). Here's what you do:

  • 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. Be sure to share the title of the book and avoid spoilers.
  • Here’s a peek of what I’m reading:

    And she had managed to give every room of it the spare, stripped-down, intellectual look that April Wheeler called "interesting." Well, almost every room.

    Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates p.151

    What are you reading?

    I don't think I've seen this look before.

    Ooooh, I love your teaser. Is it a good book?

    I've gotta say, the movie trailer made this look like a depressing story. I'll be curious to read your review!

    My teasers are here.

    Love the quote in your header, by the way!

    Our neighborhood book group read this a few months ago (we live on a "Revolutionary Road"), and are hoping to see the movie as a group.

    I'll look for your review!

    My teaser is here.

    Good teaser. That line just really hooks you in.

    Thanks, everyone for the visits.

    Bluestocking - I'm unsure if you're commenting about the new look of the blog or had a typo and meant "book." Anyway, I'm glad you stopped by.

    Lynn - This is embarrassing, but I've not yet really sat down and started reading this book. I'm anxious to but I've let other things intrude on my reading time. Blogging being one of them. (blushing)

    avisannschild - You're correct (I think) not a cheery story with a happy ending but I tend to like those types of books.

    Jo Jo - I know! I found that odd that this male character seemed preoccupied with messages sent by home decor. Very interested in status possibly?

    Dawn - I read your review of this book. Very well done! On the whole, did your book club like it?

    Irish - Yeah, who knew one's interior decorating could be of such interest...Years later we have HGTV.

    I have honestly never heard of this - or a movie. My nose was buried in other books I guess. I do like "Edgar Sawtelle" very much - halfway through and due back in 5 days - if you don't hear back from me after that assume I was arrested for keeping their property ;0)

    There's a movie that goes with this book? Maybe I'll check them both out. =D

    Sounds like some major room makeover is happening... Interesting teaser!
