Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • 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!

As a further desperate precaution, Burr opened a decoy file for Jonathan, gave it a fictitious name, fronted it with the particulars of a fictitious agent, and surrounded it with a conspicuous secrecy, which he hoped would draw the eye of any predator. Paranoia? Rooke suggested.

From The Night Manager by John le Carré, p. 54.

Sounds very clandestine. But then I guess you'd expect that with le Carre, wouldn't you? Nice teasers.

Kaye said...

just a tad on the paranoid side but then in that business, who isn't. Happy St. Pat's day.

My teaser is here under the Galway Bay tour post.

It's not paranoia if they really are out to get you! Good teaser.

My teasers are here.

You will be a fat, unhealthy, bloated pig if you live this way. Trendy diets like Atkins become popular for one reason: They hide behind scientific jarbon that seems to make sense and allow you to eat unhealthy, fattening food as long as ou avoid carbs.

- from Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin.

As a caveat, I haven't really liked the book, and they have marketed it with their sassy, sarcastic tones, hence the blunt first sentence!
