Teaser Tuesday #4

teaser tuesdayTeaser Tuesday is sponsored by MizB at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Grab a book you are reading, open to a random page and pull two sentences. Post the book title, author, and page number. No spoilers, please. 😉

The Quirky Girls love to tease you with a few sentences from what we’re reading right now.

First from Faith:

“I’m dreaming that I’m Anastasia again, and it’s like I’ve dreamed before. I’m her, inside her body, her mind, there in that basement with her family when the killing begins.”

Dreaming Anastasia by Joy Preble (pages 149-150 in the nook edition)

And Jehara is reading:

“Crystalline swirls of sugar and flour still lingered in the air like kite tails. And then there was the smell-the smell of hope, the kind of smell that brought people home.”

The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen (location 727, Kindle edition)

Molly, the ever faithful Red Sox fan, has selected this teaser in honor of baseball’s Opening Day this week.:

“You want people to be unaware of your roots, you ought not go on about the Cleveland Indians in front of them, Sheriff. Nobody from another city would follow such a shitty ball club.”

The Cypress House by Michael Koryta (page 195, ARC version)

Izzybella is reading:

The audience goes mad for us, and I am awed by their affection. It is not a thought-out organised thing to perform a play but a wild irregular roar, impossible to tame.

Exit the Actress by Priya Parmar (page. 135)

From Margot:

I wasn’t sure where this was going but I knew I wasn’t going to like it.

“You will come here to do a few odd jobs.”

Any job for her would be odd, I thought.

– Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool, the 2011 Newberry Medal Winner (page 71).

Come back on Thursday and catch my review.

About Margot

I'm also known as Joyfully Retired. I love to talk. I love to talk about books I've read, movies I've seen, places I've traveled to, people (especially my children and grandchildren), and Food. On the Quirky Girls Read blog I'm trying to read all the books that have won the major awards and then, of course, talk about them.

    These all sound great.

    I love the sound of Dreaming Anastasia

  4. Marg says:

    What an interesting mix of books. I am assuming the first one is about the Romanovs, and if it is I am interested, and I love Sarah Addison Allen’s books!

    Here’s my teaser for this week.

    • Marg, you’re correct. It’s about the Romanovs, and it twists magic and reality into a delicious book.

      Have you read Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen? Loved it!!

      • Marg says:

        I have read all of Sarah Addison Allen’s earlier books and loved them. Just picked up the new release, The Peach Keeper, from the library yesterday.

    • jehara says:

      Me too, Marg! I have always been fascinated by the Romanov family. I really enjoyed The Girl Chasing the Moon. I am looking forward to reading more by Allen.

  5. Beth F says:

    What a fabulous mix of teasers. Molly — love yours. I grew up in Ohio (not Cleveland).

  6. Great teasers, “Quirky Girls,” and I enjoyed them all. I think I’m especially drawn to Dreaming Anastasia.

    Here’s MY TT POST

  7. Cat says:

    Very eclectic ready there. I love it. The first one sounds intriguing and I may just have to check that one out soon.

    Here’s mine: http://www.composingcat.com/2011/03/teaser-tuesday-march-29.html

  8. Great teasers! I’m going to add Dreaming Anastasia to my TBR list and The Cypress House is in my pile of books, how is it so far?

    Here’s my Teaser Tuesday. Happy Reading!

    • Bumbles says:

      I am really enjoying it very much! I was searching for a good mystery/thriller that didn’t seem too cliche or easy to figure out. This one is very unique and quite a page turner. Plus the setting is as much a character as the people. I always appreciate that touch.

  9. Dreaming Anastasia looks great! Adding that to my TBR for sure!

    Here’s my TT:

    • izzybella says:

      Right??? I just barely finished The Girl Who Chased the Moon and talked it up to Jehara. I have a feeling I’ll be reading lots of Sarah Addison Allen in the future!!

  11. Lori says:

    Wow. I can only read one book at a time. I hope that you are enjoying your books. Check out my Teaser for Tuesday.

  12. Very interesting teasers, Dreaming Anastasia is one I must read, stop and see mine.

  13. Jennifer says:

    Well chosen teasers and I have added a couple books to my TBR list. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2011/03/teaser-tuesdays-the-beauty-of-humanity-movement.html

  14. I just finished Dreaming Anastasia; I’m not sure that I’ll post a review, but I liked it quite well.

    I love the mixture of books you all are reading (although I DO resent the sadly true teaser about my beloved Cleveland Indians) 🙂 …

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Bumbles says:

      Sorry Julie! I couldn’t resist – it made me laugh out loud and this is not a very humorous book. I do feel badly for the Indians – Cleveland in general – their sports teams are in a sad state right now.

  15. Ren says:

    Oh I like that “Dreaming Anastasia” That teaser yanked me right by the throat!
    Thank you for visiting my blog 🙂

  16. I LOOOOVED The Girl Who Chased the Moon and this quote! Great pick!

    Here is my TT 🙂

  17. teenagersmom says:

    I would read every single one of them!

    Thanks for stopping by earlier!

  18. lolol great collection – Moon Over Manifest sounds hilarious

    • Margot says:

      Moon Over Manifest actually has undertones of subtle humor. The main character is 12-years old and so she sees the world in a different way. Mostly I was just rooting for her to succeed.

  19. jehara says:

    All the books sound great ladies!! I have a couple of new ones to add to the (ever growing) list. 😉

  20. sally906 says:

    Lots of lovely teasers again this week – my wish list always weeps after tuesday each week 🙂

    The new Sarah Addison Allen (The Peach keepers) is not due out in Australia until next month – I am hanging out for it.

  21. Heather says:

    I’ve got Dreaming Anastasia on my pile and the Girl Who Chased the Moon too. They all look good!

  22. Wow! Those are all wonderful teaser choices! I have Dreaming Anastasia on my wishlist, it looks great!

  23. Amy says:

    Margot, your teaser for Moon Over Manifest is very intriguing! I was also excited when I saw that this is the Newberry winner. I’m jotting this book on my list!

    Molly, LOL Funny teaser! He’s got a pont, too! I have The Cypress House on my list so I’d love to know what you think of the story.

    Jehara, the cover to The Girl That Chased the Moon is so pretty. It’s such a sweet teaser. And, of course, I’m wondering what was in the air & why?!

  24. Jeremy says:

    Definitely love the teaser from The Cypress House! Thanks for visiting my site yesterday! Here’s mine: http://beltwayliterature.com/2011/03/29/teaser-tuesday-pride-and-prejudice/
