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.
  • 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!

I have read a lot of good reviews on this book, and with the movie opening here next month (I know this movie was released a while back in the U.S.), I want to read the book first before I catch it on screen. I hope the movie is as good as the book! It's so intense, and oh full of suspense!


Chuck came over. 'You find it?'

Teddy nodded, turned the notebook so that Chuck could see the page, the single word written there, tightly scrawled and already beginning to bleed in the rain:

run

(Pg 161, Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane)

  4. Novroz Says:

    Aw nice teaser. After watching the movie, I really want to read this book


  5. Becky Says:

    I always try and read the book before I see the movie, otherwise I find that I read the book and I am picturing the movie unfolding.

    I don't know what is, but some reason this doesn't appeal to me. Maybe its because Ive seen the add for the movie?

    Mine is a classic this week
