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 teaser is from Max Lucado’s Just Like Jesus:

He stands with you on the threshold.  A thought approaches, a questionable thought.  Do you throw open the door and let it enter?

My Teaser is from The Last Dickens by Matthew Pearl.  I haven’t actually started it yet so I’m just going to give you the first two sentences:

Neither of the young mounted policemen fancied these subdivisions of the Bagirhaut province.  Neither of them fancied jungles where all manner of things could happen unprovoked, unseen, as they had a few years before when a poor lieutenant was stripped, clubbed and drowned in the river for trying to collect licensing taxes.

My current read is When the Lights Went Out:  Britain in the Seventies by Andy Beckett.
