Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week my teaser comes from the book Stolen Innocene by Elissa Wall
My Teaser
I felt Allen get up beside me, and turning to look at him, I was shocked by what I saw: Allen stood in front of me exposing himself. " What are you doing put that away!" I demanded, closing my eyes tightly.


  1. This sounds like a tough read, but I'll bet it's pretty interesting.

  2. Wow, certainly not a light read.
    I love your blog! So cool!

    Here is my teaser:


  3. Like the other two have said doesn't look like it will be an easy read. Though it has sparked my interest and I usually don't read many memoirs but I think I will check this one out.

    Here is my teaser, http://miss-check-out.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesday-entice-by-carrie-jones-8.html

  4. This may be a book that I wouldn't be able to handle. I will wait to see your review.

  5. This book is pretty thick. I really like it though. Its very interesting.

  6. I read that one when I went through my polygamy stage. I find cults so interesting. . .

  7. Great teaser! The cult culture intrigues me, so I will have to pick that one up!

    Here's mine from "Born Under a Lucky Moon" by Dana Precious.

    "It says here that Lucy and I have the pink room, Grandma has the guest room, Sammie has the dessert room, Elizabeth and Ron are staying at Evan’s in the Jimi Hendrix room, and Jean-Paul, Anna’s brother, has their back room.” We pondered all of the various options open to us. Chuck could stay on the couch. But no, he was a guest, and furthermore, he was married to Lucy even if we weren’t supposed to know about it.

    That's from the second chapter. It’s a really great book, fun and heartwarming about a dysfunctional yet loving family from Michigan.

    There are sample chapters at http://www.bornunderaluckymoon.com. And, here is a review of the book: http://blogcritics.org/books/article/book-review-born-under-a-lucky/
