Teaser Tuesdays (20)

*waves* So how are you guys? How's the holidays so far? Me? I'm feeling way too lazy these days. Waking up every morning is a struggle since I have to go to work for 2 more days before the year ends. Which is a total bummer if you ask me. *sigh*

Anyway, this week's teaser comes from a book I'm seriously seriously enjoying! It's been a while since I've read a book beyond 500 pages, so this is quite a challenge, but I'm loving it so far!

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!

He pushed her through and Isobel stumbled over the threshold, into her bedroom and there, in her bed, she saw herself- asleep.

“Learn to awaken within your dreams, Isobel,” he called after her, “or we are all lost.”

~p 249, "Nevermore" by Kelly Creagh

I love how there are moments of creepiness throughout the entire book, but you just can't stop yourself reading through it! This is an entirely different novel which I haven't encountered in a while, interesting and very enjoyable!

Share your teasers this week, everyone! Would love to read them. :)

  2. Sounds really mysterious! I'm eager to know what you think of this! Some people hated it, some loved it. Here's my teaser of Raised by Wolves: http://shusky20.blogspot.com/2010/12/teaser-tuesdays-raised-by-wolves-by.html

  5. I also found this book interesting, though I didn't enjoy it as much as I was hoping to. Hope you do though (we all have different tastes!).

  6. Hey there, new follower here! This is a great teaser. I keep seeing this book pop up, but I haven't been sure that it's something I would enjoy...I'll definitely continue to keep it in mind.

    My Teaser Tuesday is here.

  7. Here is my teaser from Nature's Secret Messages: Hidden in Plain Sight by Elaine Wilkes (Page 3):

    "We lie in the lap of immense intelligence." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Stop. Look. Listen. My kindergarten teacher taught me that. I remember carefully lining up the tips of my patent-leather shoes exactly at the edge of the curb and stopping–then carefully looking to my right and left, quiet and aware, listening for any clues. Feeling that it was safe to proceed, I'd grasp my classmate's hand, jump off the curb, and happily venture into unknown territories on the other side of the street.

    Now I barely glance from side to side as I hurry on my way.

    What happened? Where did that wide-open feeling of awareness go? In the rush of adulthood, it seems to vanish, but what would happen if we simply stopped, looked and listened…even as busy adults?

    As a learning addict, I've hunted for insights through countless books, seminars, experts, masters and more. Eventually, I realized that my kindergarten teacher had it right from the beginning, long before I started my quest. Who knew that she was so profound?
