Teaser Tuesdays (8)

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!

Here's mine:

"But, Dad, I . . . well, I'm a lot younger than you. I don't want to hurt you."
Aron chuckled. "I think I might surprise you."

p 31, Insight (Beholders, #1) by Terron James

Leave a post with a link to your TT, or, if you don't have a blog, post your teaser right in the comments!


  1. Age can sometimes have the advantage.

    Great teaser. Please check out my teaser.

  2. Sounds like he is trying to prove a point.

    here's mine:

  3. I agree with Alice that age can be an advantage! Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my blog. :)

  4. "And stop hanging on that door," she admonished absently. "It'll break again and I'm tired of having Chester fix he refrigerator. The last time he fixed it, it sang 'I'm a Little Teapot' every time I opened it. It drove me insane."

    p 12, Always a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough

  5. Good teaser! Haven't heard of this one but hope you enjoy the rest!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  6. I agree with Tribute Books Mama. It's sounds like he's trying to make a point and she's being thoughtful. I'm curious enough to check it out.
