Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should be Reading:
- Grab your current read.
- Let the book fall open to a random page.
- Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
- You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
- Please avoid spoilers!
This week I have two teasers. I have only just started both of them, so they will be good teasers for me too, to help with the reading motivation.
The first comes from page 241 of Three Bags Full: A Sheep Detective Story by Leonie Swann:
Deep in thought, she began trotting up and down the confined space of the hay barn. Some of the sheep bleated indignantly when she pushed them aside or bumped into them, but Miss Maple didn't seem to hear them.
The second teaser comes from page 210 of The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry:
The statue is of Salem's founding father, she says, but tells them not to feel bad if they didn't guess right, because a national magazine got it wrong too. When their article on Salem came out, she says, it pictured the statue of Roger Conant with a caption that labeled our founding father as "a determined sorceress"
