Teaser Tuesday: February 23, 2010


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!

The Forest House (Avalon, Book 2)Here are mine:
 
With so unruly a horse or slave he would have known to take sterner measures. Perhaps it was harder for him to discipline Gaius because so often he saw Moruadh looking out of her son's eyes. The Forest House by Marion Zimmer Bradley, p. 200
 
 
 
Zan-Gah: A Prehistoric Adventure
 
As with his own people, there was a distinct line between the work of men and women, and as with his own, there was deep shame in crossing the well-established separation. Zan had always held the labor of women in high respect, necessary and gratefully received by everybody; yet his tribesman would no sooner do it themselves than seek to bear a child, which was the special gift of women. Zan-Gah by Allan Richard Shickman, p. 81




Brooklyn: A NovelWhen George and Jim returned, all four of them set out walking along the strand, the two men running at first to dry themselves. Eilis was amused at how tight and flimsy their swimming togs were. Brooklyn: A Novel by Colm Toibin, p. 232
