Teaser Tuesdays and It's Tuesday...Where are you?

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
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!

A beehive-shaped pile of dirt is mounded behind the tent, waiting for the end of the service. The grave diggers will dump the dirt in the hole to keep Cassie from floating to the surface and running away.

p.133- Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson

Carrie used to write to Aunt Katherine, who is definitely the black sheep in the family. Just because my mother and she had a "falling-out" didn't mean Carrie couldn't be in touch.

p. 79- The Geometry of Sisters by Luanne Rice


Well, I'm a teen again but this time I have a lot of problems. One is my best friend has just died. Two, I'm slowing killing myself and I can't stop. I'm also in Newport hanging out with the "old-money" crowd and trying to keep my family together. At least what is left of my family, after the death of my husband. I'm also trying to re-connect with my sister who I haven't spoken to in years......

* Wintergirls
* The Geometry of Sisters


  1. I know I could never read that book but your teaser is certainly interesting.

    My teaser is here

  2. Both of those teasers were intriguing.

    Grave diggers burying someone to stop them floating away and a good family feud. You have been reading some interesting sounding books.

  3. I've got to read "Wintergirls" and "The Geometry Sisters." I wish my teasers had been so exciting.

  4. Great teasers!!!! :):):):):):):):) My package to U should be arriving soon....pretty please let me know when U get it! :):):):):):):):):):)

  5. Both good teasers, but the first is is eerily good :)

  6. From the sounds of your two books you are spending a lot of time with relationship problems - family relationship problems. You need a break.

  7. The first teaser definitely spooked me out!

  8. Well, I don't know about that first book, but "The Geometry of Sisters" sounds like a good read. Or maybe I'm just identifying because I was sort of the "black sheep" of my own family! Great teasers.

  9. I like both teasers. The second one reminded me of how I felt about one of my aunts whom I dad frequently disowned when I was growing up. I used to keep in touch with her despite my father's frustrations with her. As an adult, I understand better why he was angry with her--not that disowning her was ever the best answer.

  10. I won Wintergirls in a contest and my daughter promptly "stole" it from me! I definitely need to get it back!

  11. I am looking forward to Wintergirls when it comes in for me at the library!

  12. Isn't Wintergirls fantastic? Thrilled to see you're reading it!!

  13. Good teasers for both books! I want to read both of them.

  14. That first one is making my skin crawl!!!

  15. Great teasers - I've heard great things about Wintergirls. :)

    There's an award waiting for you at my place to say thanks for your encouragement during the read-a-thon

  17. Great teasers. I'd really like to read Wintergirls and The Geometry Sisters sounds interesting-I'd never heard of it before.

  18. I loved Wintergirls, so I really hope you are too!!! :)
