Teaser Tuesday - Nov 26



Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • 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 and author 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!
Have you ever noticed that when your mind is awakened or drawn to someone new, that persons name suddenly pops up everywhere? My friend Sophie calls it coincidence, and Reverend Simpless calls it grace.
Stirrings within Juliet Ashton in (again) The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows - our book group of the month. Here's the Guardian review - he liked it. On the other hand from a goodreads review -
This book is a lot like my mother's pie. It looks pretty, the crust is warm and flaky, but one bite and the filling sends you into a diabetic coma.

Hey, that's right. The name pops up everywhere.

I've read this book but I don't remember this line. I'll have to go back and check it.

Actually, the same thing happens when you start to think of anything in particular - like the color of a car or how many of a particular kind of tree is around. It's just awareness.

Great teaser. Please check out mine.

This is a great teaser - so what do you think to the book?

Cleopatra - I think I'm happier that I was when it was all light and fluffy, there were darker hues towards the end. I did wonder though that the different writers seemed to have too similar voices.
