Teaser Tuesday-June 9


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 “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!

It has been a busy couple of weeks for me so once again my teaser is from Two Brothers: One North, One South by David H. Jones:

The tigers were armed with Mississippi Rifles and each carried a wicked-looking Bowie knife. They had the reputation of being formidable fighters, although they were also notorious in the Confederate Army for their unruly behavior.

pg. 146

Just so you all know, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth! I have just been wrapped up with the high school graduation activities. I will probably post something about those festivities later, but now that those activities are done for the most part, I am hoping that I will be able to finish this book within the next couple of days.

You have been busy. No worries-enjoy this time. It'll only come once for the kids right. I look forward to your thoughts on this book.

I'm going to tell my husband about this book. He is on a challenge this to read 12 Civil War books. This sounds good.

I've read a lot of mixed reviews on this one. How do you like it so far?

I have this one sitting on my shelf. I'm not sure when, or if, I'm going to get around to it.

Don't think I'd want to get too close to those boys when they start getting unruly with those Bowie knives! Sounds like a good read, though.
