Teaser Tuesday: August 18

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!
    Please avoid spoilers!
This week I am actually reading two books and listening to a third (Dracula). So, I am going to post teasers from the two books that I am reading and the one that I am listening to.

The Well and The Mine by Gin Phillips: page 191
"Baked apple," he said, and held it up. The juice running down his fingers, and I could smell it. My biscuits weren't quite as tasty then.

The Vixen Manual by Karrine Steffans: page 141
I can just hear it now: "That's it? That's all your gonna give us?" Yes, girls, that's all I can give you, and here's a great example as to way.

Dracula by Bram Stoker: page 198
"Can you tell me why the tortoise lives more long than generations of men; why the elephant goes on and on till he have seen dynasties; and why the parrot never die only of bite of cat or dog or other complaint? Can you tell me why men believe in all ages and places that there are some few who live on always if they be permit; that there are men and women who cannot die?"

My favorite of the three is, of course, the Dracula quote. Isn't that lovely. I haven't gotten to that section in the audiobook yet. But I can't wait to hear it with the accent.

  2. quote two seems to follow my "what? Is that it" after I read quote one! Both great.


    It's been too long since I've read Dracula to remember the quote.
