Teaser Tuesdays

I decided since I have been remiss in updating my blog as much as I wanted, I would do one of the book blogger memes that other bloggers have been doing. It is called TEASER TUESDAYS and is hosted by blogger MizB at Should be Reading.

The premise is to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Open to a random page.
  • Share with us 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, too, so that other Teaser Tuesdays (TT) participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) lists if they like your teasers!

Here is mine:

“Vanessa pulled her hand away, leaving her mother to pat the arm of the chair. She felt like an animal with its leg in a steel trap and no way to free itself without amputating the limb.”

–p. 97, “The Reserve” by Russell Banks

Reads like heavy duty family drama . . . I just started this book over the weekend as some really nice friends brought me this one and Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road.”

Please share your Tuesday Teasers from whatever book you are currently reading!
