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 just finished reading Mockingjay this morning. Honestly speaking, I don't know what to think of it at this moment. I guess I'd need some time to sort out everything what I had read and to write what I have thought of the book (hopefully soon).

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Several persons negotiated for it; but, somehow, always before the bargain was closed they heard the unpleasant rumours and declined to treat any further.

It was in this state of things that my landlady, who at that time kept a boarding-house in Bleecker Street, and who wished to move further up town, conceived the bold idea of renting No. -- Twenty-sixth Street.



(Pg 26, What Was It? by Fitz-James O'Brien - From The Penguin Book of Ghost Stories)

    I like this teaser! I've started on LET THE RIGHT ONE IN, and is reading SAVOR THE MOMENTS with Julia, and at the same time reading MOCKINGJAY. I say I'm doing pretty well here. I hope. LOL
