Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted byMiz B of Should Be Reading.

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I am currently reading three novels thus I am sharing a teaser from all three:

It is one of my faults, that though my tongue is sometimes prompt enough at an answer, there are times when it sadly fails me in framing an excuse; and always the lapse occurs at some crisis, when a facile word or plausible pretext is specifically wanted to get me out of painful embarrassment. ~ page 251, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
*If only she hadn't followed Mr. Rochester......

The truck and trailer were gone.  Our home was gone.  All my belongings, except what I had in my car, were gone.  Panic. ~ page 203, A Girl's Guide to Homelessness by Brianna Karp

"What is this mysterious voice telling you now?" Tsehye casually asked Tadesse.  When Tadesse didn't reply, Tsehye offered, "Is it telling you, 'Don't move or speak, because if you do, the snake will attack you?" ~ page 188, A Time To...A Baby Boomer's Spiritual Adventures

What do you think?  Have any of the three here sparked an interest in the novel?  If so, which one?
 Please leave a link to your "teaser" with a comment.  I love a good sneak peak!

  12. You have to love the Jane Eyre teaser! The second teaser is so heartbreaking. Thanks for sharing

  13. Now that I've finally gotten through Pride and Prejudice (and loved it!) Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights now top my "As an English major I should have already read these" list. Your teaser is inspiring! I also like the second teaser. That looks like another good book that should be added to my reading pile. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier today!

  14. The Girl's Guide to Homelessness looks sad...:(

  15. Great teaers, "A Girl's Guide to Homelessness" is on my TBR list!

  17. I loved Jane Eyre, it was the first book I read in 2011.

  18. It's been a long time since I've read Jane Eyre. I haven't read the other two in your teasers. Thanks for stopping by mine today.

  19. I can't decide which teaser I like best -- they're all so different. Thanks for posting all three.
    My teaser is from Lace and Shadows, a paranormal romance: Sandy's Teaser
