Teaser Tuesday

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! 

This week I'm reading: 

Illuminated - Erica Orloff

“And you’re not excited the slightest bit about sleuthing with August.”
A cab pulled over to pick us up. I had August’s card in my hand. I glanced over at Uncle Harry. “Well, if I have to sleuth
this summer and play Nancy Drew . . . there’s nothing like a hot guy to make it even more interesting.”

"And there, alone, I cried. At first, it was a weird aimless crying. I cried for Miriam, for August, for Professor Sokolov, for Astrolabe and Heloise and Abelard. And then, finally, I felt the hard tears start, and I cried for me. For the motherless little girl and the woman in the picture in my room whom I never had the chance to know."

What about you? What are you reading this week? Are you enjoying it?


  1. This sounds really excellent. I hope you are enjoying it. I have a teaser from Winterling by Sarah Prinieas and from Magic Gifts by Ilona Andrews this week. Happy reading!

  2. Loved the writing, especially in the second teaser. This sounds like a book I'd enjoy.
    My teaser is here: http://iousex.blogspot.com/2011/12/teaser-tuesday-dec-27.html

  3. Wow, that sounds really fabulous! I'm reading The Iron Knight and really enjoying it!

  4. Oh, it sounds like an emotional read. o: But I'm intrigued! It's actually the first time I see this book. Hope it's as good as it seems!
