Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB from Should Be Reading.
The rules are as follows:
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!
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.
This week I have not one, not two, but THREE, yes Three teasers to share.
I've never read three books at one time before, but I am handling it well.
So here goes:
"Ever worked in Chicago before?" the man inquired, and whether it was a good angel that put it into Jurgis's mind, or an intuition of his sharpened wits, he was moved to answer, "No, sir."
pg. 237, The Jungle by Upton Sinclair
"He's going to kiss me. Of course he is. He'd only been pawing me for an entire evening. But is he going to more than kiss me? And at which point exactly do I confess my utter ignorance in these matters and ask him politely if we could just call it a night?"
pg. 241, Cutting Loose by Nadine Dajani
Again Trystan was silent a space before replying, and Isolde saw indecision flicker across his face. Then he seemed to make up his mind. "No", he said. Kian opened his mouth to protest, but Trystan held up a hand. "No," he said again. "I'll go."
pg. 261, Twilight of Avalon by Anna Elliott
Why three books? The Jungle is for book club, and it's very sad and disturbing. I like to read for fun. Therefore I started Cutting Loose. Totally liking that. Twilight of Avalon I picked up at the library yesterday, because my lunch time friends couldn't take lunch yesterday. What else was I supposed to do with myself but walk to the library? But I was good. I only borrowed that one book...to add to the other three at home :)
So what are your teasers today?
