Time For Some Teasers

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.

Each Quirky Girl has her own favorites when it comes to reading. Here we share what we’re looking at right now. I hope we succeed in teasing you.

From ChaucerianGirl:

David had spotted the green-eyed monster lurking in Michal’s eyes when she mentioned the slave girls, and he used her jealousy as a sharp knife, severing their relationship for good. As one writer put it, “he cut her from his heart.”

Bad Girls of the Bible by Liz Curtis Higgs, page 193 of Nook edition

From IzzyBella:

In the space between yes and no, there’s a lifetime. It’s the difference between the path you walk and the one you leave behind; it’s the gap between who you thought you could be and who you really are; its the legroom for the lies you’ll tell yourself in the future.”

Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult (Listening to it on audio)

From Molly:

“But the mere thought of that other woman, who could take a man up and toss him aside as she willed, without having to regard him as a possible factor in her plans, filled Lily Bart with envy. She had been bored all afternoon by Percy Gryce – the mere thought seemed to waken an echo of his droning voice – but she could not ignore him on the morrow, must be ready with fresh compliances and adaptabilities, and all on the bare chance that he might ultimately decide to do her the honour of boring her for life.”

The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton, page 25

From Margot:

Mr. Hercule Poirot –You fancy yourself, don’t you, at solving mysteries that are too difficult for our poor thick-headed British police? Let us see, Mr. Clever Poirot, just how clever you can be. Perhaps you’ll find this nut too hard to crack. Look out for Andover on the 21st of this month. Yours, etc., A.B.C.

The ABC Murders by Agatha Christie, page 15

From Jehara:

soul surfer

“That’s all it took: a split second. I felt a lot of pressure and a couple of lightning-fast tugs. I couldn’t make out any of the details, but I knew that the huge jaws of a fifteen-foot tiger shark covered the top of my board and my left arm.”

Soul Surfer: A True Story of Faith, Family, and Fighting to Get Back on the Board by Bethany Hamilton with Sherry Berk and Rick Bundschuh, Location 110 Kindle edition

Okay, consider yourself teased. What are you reading these days?

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.

  12. I’m teased, I’m teased!
    The Edith Wharton one worked for me 🙂 Never read any of her stories before.

    My teaser is from a YA book too – albeit a very different one, written almost like archaic steampunkery at e-Volving Books

  13. What wonderful teasers! I’m a huge Agatha Christie fan, and really enjoyed The ABC Murders, but it’s been many years since I read it. Maybe time for a reread? And I love the sound of Bad Girls of the Bible – might have to give that one a closer look.

  14. Great teasers, enjoy your books.

    Come by and see mine and my giveaways.

  15. Coreena says:

    Great teasers, nice variety.

  16. Oh, wow. This is like the teaser jackpot! I especially like the ones from Change of Heart and The House of Mirth. If you get a chance, mine is here: http://readhanded.blogspot.com/2011/04/teaser-tuesdays_26.html

  17. pk reeves says:

    Now that’s what I call Teasers across the board.

    The first one Bad Girls of the Bible made me laugh. That has got to be the most controversial title for a book ever. Enjoy the reads 🙂

  18. Tea Norman says:

    Margot, your Teasers are great. You’ve moved without crying and moaning. I cried, moaned and still haven’t moved. Your page looks very nice.

  19. kaye says:

    great teasers this week. i liked the one from the jodi picoult book. Kaye—the road goes ever ever on

  20. Lots of good teasers! Mine is from a new culinary mystery.
    Crunch Time

  21. Kah Woei says:

    The teaser from Change of Heart sounds interesting. I’m definitely going to pick up 1 of her books as soon as I can …

  22. Wow, there’s a lot here! We’ve read “Change of Heart.” We like Jodi Picoult books but this wasn’t one of our favorites.

    “Soul Surfer” is one I think I might like to read. I am familiar with her story. Amazing that she got back to be able to surf still.

    Thanks for stopping by our blog earlier!
