>Teaser Tuesday

21 Dec

>Normally this would be To Be Read Tuesday here at Booklady’s Booknotes, but I’ve not added to my TBR since last Tuesday. And that’s a shocker.  So I thought I would play along with Teaser Tuesday.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of 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 that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.
My teasers:

“This man he judged to be a gentleman by nature, possibly middle class by birth, and a scholar by occupation.”
“A very clever man, Squeaky judged, possibly very clever indeed, but – at the moment – also a worried man.”

    >Here is my teaser from Lipstick in Afghanistan by Roberta Gately (Page 1):"Do you hear it?" The voice was almost a whisper.Elsa held her breath, and then she heard it too, a faint rustling of footsteps over twigs and leaves. Out of the corner of her eye, she glimpsed several shadowy figures darting through the trees, and when she turned, she saw a glint of sunlight reflecting off the barrel of an assault rifle.There was no denying it—the Taliban had found them.Oh, Jesus! she thought. We'll never escape.Elsa knew the Taliban's ruthless hatred; the death and destruction they wrought was undeniable.Seized by a sickening wave of fear, she wanted to cry or throw up, but there was no time. She tried to catch Parween's eye, but her friend was looking back, intent on finding the source of the sound."Run!" someone shouted, and suddenly, the chase was on.
