Teaser Tuesday (37)

Teaser Tuesday is a bookish meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along. Just do the following:

Grab your current read.
Open to a random page.
Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title and the author too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.

I generally do things a little bit differently. I usually read and review up to 5 or 6 books a week and I like to post a teaser from each one.

The First Assassin by John Miller, page 137. "Why yes, that's exactly right. When I'm dressed up, sometimes I worry that I'm seeing things as they truly are - you know, everybody standing at attention and acting as they think they should rather than as they usually do."

Fame: A Novel in Nine Episodes by Daniel Kehlmann, page 12. As he crept soundlessly back upstairs, he wondered whether Ralf actually existed. Suddenly he found it unbelievable that Ralf was living out there, going about his business, oblivious to him, Ebling. Perhaps Ralf's life had always been intended for him, and some mere accident had switched their destinies.

Fiber & Brimstone by Laura Childs, page 226. Carmela located the candles, trundled them to the front desk, then was immediately asked to run and grab a pair of grinning skulls from a box in Ava's office. Feeling like Hamlet contemplating poor Yorick, Carmela delivered the lifelike (deathlike)? skulls to Ava.

Take a Chance on Me by Jane Mansell, page 259. Cleo loved it that he was as entertained by the photographs as she was. The last thirty-minutes had flown by. She and Johnny may not have been friends in their teenage years, but they'd known all the same people.

Saving Max by Antoinette van Heugten, page 44. "What do we do if they say I'm really crazy?" He turns away quickly, as if he can't bear hearing the question out loud, much less the answer.

A Memory Between Us by Susan Sundin, page 233. Jack had never heard his grandfather give a long speech. Ever. Could Jack do that? Could he abandon the ministry and stay in the military? Would it be a failure? Or a victory?

Missing Andy by Lori A. Moore, page 39. I wondered what Andy looked like without glasses and with the ability to walk straight and without pain. Would I recognize him when I got there? Just what is a glorified body anyway?

Great set of teasers.

Walking without pain is bound to make Andy look completely different.
