Teaser Tuesday-Feb. 10


Check out Teaser Tuesdays from Should Be Reading. 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!

My teaser is from The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne:

'Did you do something bad in work? I know that everyone says you're an important man and that the Fury has big things in mind for you, but he'd hardly send you to a place like this if you hadn't done something that he wanted to punish you for.'

pg. 50

Love your teaser, Jo-Jo! It made me laugh!

"...he'd hardly send you to a place like this if you hadn't done something that he wanted to punish you for"! LOL!

I saw the movie, so I finally figured out the reference. It took me awhile, though!

The Bumbles said...

Isn't this a sad book? Holocaust related perhaps? I'm trying to decide what to read next - how do you like this one so far?

Jo-Jo said...

This was a great book everyone and I would suggest just picking it up if you have it--it was a very quick read! I will be posting a review on this one in the next day or so, but I will tell you now that I loved it!

This sounds intriguing. I've heard negative things about the movie version but it sounds like the book is better.
