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!
Here's my teaser for today:


The new hotel owner explained that in the basement she had discovered the belongings of thirty-seven Japanese families who she presumed had been persecuted and taken away. Their belongings had been hidden and never recovered - a time capsule from the war years.


(Pg 6, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford)






Hello, my dear readers! I will be taking a short break from blogging starting today. I am taking leave off of work and will be spending more time with my daughters; and given this opportunity I also hope to catch up on my reading.

I will miss you all! Happy reading! I will be back next week.

    This is one book I MUST read. I can't wait to read your review. But how cool is it to take time off work to spend with your kids? You don't get back their childhood years, so this is something you will be so happy you did. We will miss you, but will be here waiting for you when you get back!
