Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.  Everyone is invited to play along.  Just do the following:

  • 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 and author as well so that others can add the book to their To Be Read list!

This week I am reading A Funeral for an Owl by Jane Davis.  It’s pretty good so far.  Check out the teaser below.

People leave.  He’d got used to it, pitying the small boy who sobbed as he watched his father waving out of the back window of a police car.  pg. 141

Synopsis:  A rule-keeper, Ayisha Emmanuelle believes the best way to avoid trouble is by walking away. But, arriving on the scene of what appears to be a playground fight, that isn’t an option. To her horror she finds her colleague Jim Stevens has been stabbed. In the messy aftermath, when Shamayal discloses that he and Jim are friends, Ayisha’s first duty is to report her colleague. But, not knowing if he will pull through, something makes her hesitate. Now, all she can do is wait to see if her instinct was justified.

    Fun! Here’s mine:

    “All that was left of the locust was part of its head – it no longer looked human”

    “The day dribbled past like cold molasses.”

    The Dry by Rebecca Nolen.

  2. Superb teaser this week 🙂

  3. “…given the increasingly long lines at emergency rooms – we’ve heard of delays as long as forty-eight hours – not to mention the waiting lists for even the most basic nursing homes, it no longer makes sense to add generations to the system that can’t take care of all of the ones who are here now.” (Dr. Marion)
    “Justin Winters and those women are heroes to parents everywhere, and we should be making a statue of them instead of hunting them down.” (J. S.)
