Teaser Tuesday

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"


  1. Wow. That one for The Lace Reader really jumped at me. I'll be looking forward to your review.

  2. I read the Sheep book a while back - I look forward to seeing what you think of it!

  3. Two good teasers. I like the sound of the sheep book and will have to check it out.

  4. I really enjoyed The Lace Reader. Hope you do too.

  5. I've heard great things about the Lace Reader! Thanks for the teasers.

    Here's my Teaser!

  6. Ooh, my partner is in the middle of reading me Three Bags Full. So far we're loving it. I also really enjoyed The Lace Reader.

    My teasers are here.

  7. You've been tagged for an award my dear!

  8. Great teasers! :-)

    I'm way behind in reading blogs like I really want to. But, as usual, your blog wakes me up!

  9. I read Three Bags Full last year and got a kick out of it. There were a few places where it kind of bogged down, but overall I enjoyed it. Love your teaser for it!

  10. They both look like great books! Love both titles and teasers!

  11. I really want to read the sheep book. I just read one with cat detectives, but it didn't do much for me.

  12. You'll have to let me know what you think of The Lace Reader. I read it a few months ago and I'm still kinda up in the air about my opinion on it. I'm looking forward to your review.
