Teaser Tuesday hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading 
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • 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! 
‘The clouds were pink and the meadow larks were singing.  This is the country, I thought, half asleep. My dream’s come true and I’m in the country.’
~ The Outsiders by S.E. Hilton page 63
‘”I’ve read Amelia’s texts,” Kate said, forcing herself to stay seated, even though all she wanted was to jump up, grab Dylan, and shake her until she admitted to what those girls had done to Amelia and why.’
~Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight page 260

    • Frank Loyd Wright glass is a stunner. When my mom was younger she knew someone who lived in a Frank Loyd Wright house. Even as a kid she knew it was incredible.

    • When I first read the teaser from The Outsiders I thought it was very whimsical making me want to go to the country as well.

      I have had so many people (includinging the commenter above) tell me they liked Reconstucting Amelia and gets me pumped each time I turn on my Kindle.

  1. Splintered made my list! It's the only one of yours I've read, but any bibliophile would have to love the cover of The Thirteenth Tale — all those gorgeous old books. Loving Frank is beautiful, too, and immediately identifies "Frank" (at least if you're at all familiar with architectural history.) Great picks!

    • I think the girl on the cover of Splintered looks a little crazed but the gardening aspect softens it.

      I completely agree with Loving Frank identifying FLW, it's as beautiful as his work.
