Teaser Tuesday

26 Feb

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Should Be Reading.

  • 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!


Book: I’m still reading The White Woman on the Green Bicycle by Monique Roffey. It’s taking me forever. I’m now up to page 401 whereas with last week’s teaser I was up to page 208. My teaser is from page 425. 

‘I put my arms around him and held him tight, unhappy for him and for myself and for all that had happened and knowing no words to bridge the gap between us. Nothing as simple as a few well-chosen words of condolence; I had nothing to say to him’

The White Woman on the Green Bicycle - Monique Roffey

    That’s a thick book! I’m surprised at that because judging by the cover I thought it would be a short fun read. Guess not! Here’s ours: http://www.ourstack.blogspot.com/2013/02/tuesday-teasers-predator-and-fifth.html

      It’s actually not too thick, I’m just taking a long time to read it. Will check out your teaser now

    Thanks all for your comments. Will check out all your teasers this afternoon after work.

    I finally finished this book after I posted this – it’s very emotional actually. Will do a review in the next few days 🙂
