Teaser Tuesdays (July 21, 2015)



“Only those who still have hope can benefit from tears. When they finish, they feel better. But to those without hope, like Homer, whose anguish is basic and permanent, no good comes from crying.”


The Day of the Locust by Nathanael West



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm.

Anyone can 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! (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 so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

  1. Hello, the title seems quite interesting, even though I wonder what it is about... Here's mine: Richard Morgan, Broken Angels - http://earthianhivemind.net/2015/07/21/teaser-tuesdays-2/

    1. I just finished the book...and to be honest, I'm still not sure what it's about. Review to follow in the next day or two.

  2. So true.

    Do you like books with dogs? Here’s my teaser from a mystery that I really enjoyed. Funny, fast moving and engaging: http://pdworkman.com/excerpt-from-dog-tags/

  3. Sad teaser, I hope you are enjoying the book. My teaser this week comes from the urban fantasy Magic Lost Trouble Found by Lisa Shearin. Happy reading!

  4. There is definite truth in that teaser. It made me think of the difference between a good cry and a bad ugly cry. The bad ugly cry is such a hopeless cry . . . It's hard to pull out of.
