Teaser Tuesday #5

teaser tuesday

Teaser 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. 😉

Welcome to the Quirky Girls’ edition of Teaser Tuesday. We have a few sentences to share from the varied books we are reading.

First of all Molly is reading from our upcoming Read-Along book. If you’d like to join us in reading this compelling book, go HERE for more information.

“Seattle’s thick fog, which slowed down traffic on the streets and made trouble for the ships sailing in and out of Elliott Bay, had become a blanket of comfort, hiding homes and buildings from phantom Japanese bombers or artillery from suspected Japanese submarines. It seemed like there was danger everywhere, from drunken sailors behind the wheel, Japanese saboteurs, and worst of all, his own parents if they caught him.

Hotel On the Corner Of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford (Kindle location 733-735)

Faith is reading::

“The first thing we have to figure out is who we are. Some of us may feel like that is equivalent to being on a cross-country road trip without a map.”

Uncommon Sense For Real Women In the Real World, by Suzette Brawner & Jill Brawner Jones (page 59)

From Jehara’s current read:

“If anyone had been paying attention to the signs, they would have realized that air turns white when things are about to change, that paper cuts mean there’s more to what’s written on the page than meets the eye, and that birds are always out to protect you from things you don’t see.”

The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen (Kindle version, page 4-location 52)

From Margot:

“Cold hopped onto the tips of his toes and rode out the ripples of the ringing throughout his body until his teeth clattered and his knees faltered and he had to hug himself to keep from unraveling. This was his aura, a cold halo of chemical electricity that encircled him immediately before he was struck by a full seizure. Howard had epilepsy.”

– from Tinkers by Paul Harding (Kindle location 83-84)

And that’s what the Quirky Girls are reading right now. Have we teased you with our sentences?

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.

  7. Where’s Izzy’s teaser?

    • izzybella says:

      Didn’t get to read any books over the weekend-just kind of been slammed at work. But all of these teasers are getting me in the mood to procrastinate work and get some reading going. 🙂

  8. Alice Audrey says:

    His own parents? LOL.

    I’ve been cross country without a map before. It’s not hard if you stick to the interstates.

    Protective birds? I’d never thought of that.

    Interesting way to describe an epileptic fit.

    Great teasers, all of them.

  9. Great Teasers! I haven’t read any of the books but they sound really great. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    have a great week!

  20. BookBelle says:

    The Peachkeeper sounds most intriguing to me. Thanks for stopping over yesterday.

  21. I really like your groups version of TT! Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet has certainly captured my attention. Seattle isn’t too far away from where we’ve recently moved to and I’d love to visit it – might take this book on the ferry ride with me.
    I’ll also be interested to know what Margot thought of Tinkers. I found it a rather sad and strange book but one that I would probably pick up and read again. One of those books you appreciate second or third time around!

    • Margot says:

      Thanks for your kind words about our group version of TT. I will be talking about Tinkers on Friday so I hope you can join us. It’s been a different book for me to read but I can’t complain about the writing in it. It’s beautiful.

  22. SenoraG says:

    All wonderful books and teasers. Thanks for visiting me too!

  23. pk reeves says:
