The Puzzle King-Teaser Tuesdays


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 is mine:
"Sometimes, when he stood there long enough, he thought he could feel their heat through his clothes and in his heart, and it would make him think that it was his mother shining down on him and filling him with her warmth. And he would wonder if, somewhere in this world, his brothers and sisters were staring up at the same stars and thinking of their lost brother, feeling that he, too, was reaching down and trying to touch them."
~Page 258, The Puzzle King by Betsy Carter
My review, if interested, is here

Oh, that is lovely. I am going to have to investigate because the author's name is only one letter different to my mother's!

Well, that teaser really pulls the reader into the heart and soul of the scene. Now, I'm heading over to read your review.

Great teaser. It made me check out your review, too. It sounds like a book I'll have to check out.

Catherine @ The Blonde Diaries said...

What a great quote. The author does a great job capturing that feeling that I know I get when I think of a loved one that has departed.

I am left wondering what is going on at this moment in the book. Where is he, what is he doing, and what has prompted him with this memory.

Sounds good! I finally participated, can you believe it!
