  • Teaser Tuesday – Before the Season Ends

    teaser_tuesdays1MizB of Should Be Reading hosts the Teaser Tuesdays weekly event

    Here are the rules:
    * 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!

    This week’s teaser is:
    “She looked very pretty in full evening dress with the long, empire-waisted white gown and matching white gloves that reached her elbows. Her hair was done high and upon her head and she was standing, with a small smile upon her mouth, looking at Mr. Mornay as if he were an angel.”
    pg. 97 – Before the Season Ends by Linore Rose Burkard

    – I’m 40 pages into this book and still not sure what I think of it. It’s so different from anything I’ve read in a long while. It breaks all the rules of modern writing, using omniscient point of view (that’s head-hopping for all you non-writers out there) and the detail to action ratio is higher than anyone I’ve read in recent years. Yet there’s something compelling about the heroine. I look forward to seeing how it all works out.


    One thought on “Teaser Tuesday – Before the Season Ends

    1. I’m way late but I think this is a great little game!

      “They weren’t on my wrists, don’tthink I was trying to kill myself. I just wanted to hurt, and understand exactly why I was hurting. This made sense: you cut, you felt pain, period.”

      Jodi Picoult’s “handle with care”, page 194

      I am 205 pages into it. It is a bit slow but the story line is amazing. BUT…I must warn you, there are quite a few “f” bombs! 🙁 YUCK!
