It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Teaser Tuesday-twofer

MizB at Should Be Reading hosts this cool weekly event.

Teaser Tuesdays asks you to:

--Grab your current read
--Let the book 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!

~first off, Baxter is a dog~
"On the eastern side of Elephant Rock, Baxter found the distal phalange of a right index finger. It was a much harder find, given the size of the body part. Baxter was highly gifted when it came to the game of Smell-and-Find."

so it isn't somewhere between lines 7 and 12, it got your attention didn't it?

pg 69 of A Circle of Souls by Preetham Grandhi


and a second one:

"God must have known I couldn't live without you, Paul. Find our babies a mother. You know who their father should be. I'll be waiting.

I love you,
Tami"

pg 6 of Counting Stars by Michele Paige Holmes

Tuesdays: Teaser/Whereabouts

Teddyree said...

Both of them are great teasers! Hope you're enjoying the reads

That first teaser would have been even more interesting (perplexing?) to think about if you hadn't mentioned Baxter is a dog.

LOL, Michael, I didn't think of that

Great teasers. I'm especially intrigued by the second one...will have to check that one out.

I didn't read the comment about Baxter being a dog at first, so that teaser definitely caught my attention, hahaha! Great choice!

Nice!! Circle of Souls is one of the next books to read and have been hearing GREAT things about it!
