Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme,
hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:


  1. Grab your current read Open to a random page 
  2. 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!
  3. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
