Teaser Tuesdays

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!

My teaser sentences for today [The Gathering by Anne Enright (Pg 13)]:




The seeds of my brother's death were sown many years ago. The person who planted them is long dead - at least that's what I think.

    Great teaser. I can't wait to see what you think of this book.


  7. Kristy Says:

    I almost bought The Tales of Beedle The Bard, but decided to wait and reward myself when I finish the Harry Potter series. I'm glad you liked it.

    I can't wait to see what you think of The Gathering. I started it, but put it aside for something else.


  8. Alice Teh Says:

    Great teaser, Melody! I like the sound of this one.


  9. Melody Says:

    Dar - The premise is really intriguing; and the author's writing style is unique.

    Kristy - I figure I couldn't wait to read The Beedle book...I just couldn't resist it, LOL.

    I suppose we've to have the right mood to read The Gathering because that's what I did earlier, hehe.

    Alice - I've to read this book in between with the other. There are times that I find it difficult to get into the story.


  10. Iliana Says:

    I remember when I first heard about this book I really wanted to read it but then the reviews were coming back pretty mixed. I'll probably give it a chance one of these days though. I'm still intrigued :)


  11. Melody Says:

    Iliana, I've read about mixed reviews too... I've read almost half of the book and I feel like giving up now. The writing is good, but there're some dull moments and plus I couldn't really get into the story.
