Teaser Tuesdays- Forty-Eight X: The Lemuria Project



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:

"There are staccato moments that are life changing, sometimes world changing-a single step taken, a yes, a no, a signature, a nod, the swift pull of a trigger. Lawrence McGraw's life had been full of such moments."

~Page 1 , Forty-Eight X: The Lemuria Project by Barry Pollack
My review will be coming soon

What are you reading?

A swift pull of a trigger?! Oh boy. That's quite the read. Great teaser.

Heather said...

Ohh, I like that - so much truth in it. One never knows what actions we take on a daily basis might prove life-altering.

Now this is what I call a surprise sentence. You read it and are shaking your head yes, yes, yes and then wham you go huh? Great teaser.

Audrey said...

HERE is my teaser for this week!

Hi Jennifer (from across the pond in Spain!)

Just came across your link on Should Be Reading. So in the spirit of supporting each others blogs, I thought I would answer my Tuesday Teaser on your blog.

Here's my teaser:

“If cancer research had been a business, the shareholders would have sacked the management and changed the strategy long ago”-Your Life in Your Hands by Professor Jane Plant.

I have been urging/begging every woman in my life i,e girlfriends, clients, cyber-friends to read this book. It has already saved the life of two of my close friends.

By the way love your blog (and can't believe you are old enough to have teenage children!)

Fantastic teaser! I used the word 'staccato' in describing something once to a non-reader friend and they looked at me like a had three heads! LOL

Very intriguing!

celi.a said...

What's that saying about a butterfly's wings causing a typhoon somewhere else? I think all small moments are momentous in their own way. But pulling a trigger is more of a big moment, really... Great teaser!

If you'd like, you can check out mine here.

Lemuria? As in Lemurs? 'Cause I totally fell in love with them when I was in middleschool and had to do a research project on them.

Sullivan McPig said...

A powerful teaser! Makes me really curious about the rest of the book.

Thanks for dropping by at my blog btw :-)

Becki said...

That's heady. I love it when teasers show us something (especially a feeling) that we can understand or relate to. It is so much easier to decide to read a book when we know that we can connect to it.

My teaser is here.

E.J. Stevens said...

Wow! That is an amazingly powerful teaser.

My teaser is here.

xx,
