TEASER TUESDAYS is hosted by MizB at Should be Reading; I’ve modified this version to allow more than two sentences from anywhere on the page:
- Grab your current read.
- Let the book fall open to a random page.
- Share with us one or two “teaser” sentences” from that page. Please 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!
Here are my two teaser sentences:
Turns out that Monroe’s Santa Claus wore a camouflage suit, combat boots, and a green beret, and he parachuted into the parking lot of Howard Brothers Department Store on Louisville. You could see that he was aiming for the bed of a Ford pickup, but a gust of wind carried him into the Nativity scene, where he knocked over and decapitated a Wise Man.
This is from John Dufresne’s Requiem, Mass., a sharply written novel in which the very unreliable narrator is a novelist telling the reader about his unusual childhood. Requiem, Mass. has been my ‘in the car’ book for the past week or so; I’d read it in bits and pieces while waiting to pick up the kids, or standing in line at the Post Office. Yesterday I decided that I had to bring it out of the car and into the house, and plan to spend some time finishing it today.
Can you share a few sentences from the book you’re reading today?
