tuesday

Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, the weekly Meme that is hosted by The Purple Booker, .  It was first brought to me attention by Dee’s Rad Reads and Reviews It is very easy to play along:

• 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!

What Stacy is currently reading:

Pleasant Valley by Louis Bromfield

page 10:

“The houses that you remembered as big and beautiful have dwindled and become commonplace, the stream on which you once played pirates is no longer a lovely gleaming river but has turned into a small and muddy brook.

On that winter afternoon while I searched for Pleasant Valley among the hills and winding roads, I was a little afraid that when I came suddenly upon it, I would find that it had changed, that all the while I had been dreaming of something that no longer had existence in reality.”

 

The Tuscan Child by Rhys Bowen

page 127

“In the middle of the night Hugo awoke with teeth chattering. His whole body was shivering and shaking.”

Daisy is currently reading:

The Log From The Sea of Cortz by John Steinbeck

page 6:

“In time of peace in the modern world, if one is thoughtful and careful, it is rather more difficult to be killed or maimed in the outland places of the globe than it is in the streets of our great cities, but the atavistic urge toward danger persists and its satisfaction is called adventure. However, your adventurer feels no gratification in crossing Market Street in San Fransisco against the traffic. Instead he will go to a good deal of trouble and expense to get himself killed in the South Seas.”
