Teaser Tuesday (June 9)


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:

#1
"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

#2
"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

#3
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?

Nice teasers! I can only manage three books if they are very diverse sothey don't all get jumbled together in my head.

Three books? I am not one of those people who can diversify their brain like that. I am a one-book-woman. But I am looking forward to Anna Elliott's book.. and now, your review!

Missy said...

Cutting Loose sounds like my kind of book...I love the teaser!

Happy Reading!!

Dar said...

Great teasers. Cutting Loose sounds good-we both did a teaser with kissing today-lol. I've wanted to read Twilight of Avalon for a while. Mists of Avalon too but it's huge.

Jo-Jo said...

Great teasers. I will be Cutting Loose very soon and after your teaser I am definitely looking forward to it!

JoAnn said...

Wow - 3 teasers! Don't know if I could keep them all straight. I've been curious about The Jungle, so I'll be looking for your thoughts when you're finished.

Jacqueline C said...

The Jungle was so disgusting in some parts. Good teasers. Can't wait to hear what you think. Here's my first teaser and here's the other.

Staci said...

Nise' said...

Read The Jungle years ago. Cutting Loose sounds good.

Teddyree said...

Great teasers, I like disturbing and fun reads so I'm going to look up The Jungle and Cutting Loose. Thanks for sharing

Jenny Girl said...

Fleur: These books are very diverse, so it's easy to keep them separate.
SassyBrit: lol I knew what you meant. Sassy is my secret agent name/alter ego. Thanks right back at you!

Ladies: Thank you all for stopping by. I loved all your comments:)
btw, So far the Jungle is hanging out on my nightsatnd, feeling neglected.

I really like the teaser from CUTTING LOOSE!

I haven't read THE JUNGLE, but it has been recommended to me in the past ... maybe someday ...

I haven't considered posting teasers from each of the books I'm currently reading; it really does show a nice variety!
