Teaser Tuesday...


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.  Anyone can play -- 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!
--  Share the title and author, so that others can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teaser
    My teaser:
    Hayden exhaled, laughing at his embarrassing display of caution. He stood and stepped absently into the street and collided with an eight-ton cable car and was sent flying.  (p.26, Beat, by Stephen Jay Schwartz).
    REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY coming this Thursday!

    Please leave a comment with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesday's post, or if you don't have a blog, share your teaser in the comments box!

    Happy Reading!

    15. It's definitely a dark & gritty book, but I'm with you guys - that part caught me off guard! Very startling -- but a good book thus far!

      Bibliophile by the Sea -- I didn't get anything, so I guess our attempt didn't work! :(
