It’s Teaser Tuesday Time

All of the Quirky Girls love to tell others about the books we are reading. A fun way to accomplish that is to offer a couple of teaser sentences. That’s why we love to participate in MizB’s Teaser Tuesday. For more information visit MizB at Should Be Reading.

JeharaΒ is reading Vampire Academy: Frostbite by Richelle Mead. Her teaser is from page 7.

“By the way, my name’s Rose Hathaway. I’m seventeen years old, training to protect and kill vampires, in love with a completely unsuitable guy, and have a best friend whose weird magic could drive her crazy. Hey, no one said high school was easy.”

Margot is reading the Pulitzer Prize Winner, Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Stout. From page 16 we have this teaser:

“It seems to Henry, as he takes his seat in his usual middle pew, that women are far braver than men. The possibility of Olive’s dying and leaving him alone gives him glimpses of horror he can’t abide.”

That’s two great books we’re reading. What are you reading?

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.

    I’ve heard good things about the Richelle Mead books, and I do like to try different takes on the vampire myth. I like the teaser for that one.
    I rather fancy Olive Kitteridge too. I may go and look that one up on Amazon now the teaser has got me interested and possibly add it to my library wishlist.

    Jehara: This is an interesting teaser and funny! I hope you’re enjoying the book!

    Margot, I have Olive Kitteridge but haven’t read it yet. I hope you’re enjoying it. This a great teaser, very sad, my heart goes out to Henry, and from what I know, so very true.
