Teaser Tuesday-Aug. 25

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 somewhere on that page.

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!

This week my teaser is from The Day the Falls Stood Still by Cathy Marie Buchanan:
Mother eyes me warily, and I do not glance away until tears spill onto her cheeks. Father's arms are around her then, until she throws them off, saying, "For God's sake, call the police."

pg. 113

This is a great teaser. I know nothing about this book so I can't even guess why they need to call the police.

Hey, you know Obama took this book on his vacation, didn't you? Just read that yesterday.

I'm teasing about Abandoned and Forgotten, a memoir about growing up in Germany during WWII, after the expulsion of Germans from the East Prussian area and how the new Germans rebuilt their shattered, displaced lives.

"In the meantime, the masses still showed up by the thousands to watch Hitler deliver his impassioned speeches during his many public
appearances. There was fire in his inciting words, but few saw the ashes descending upon them like a smoke screen.

Great teaser! It's already got you wondering, and then you get hit with that last sentence. Now we really do need to know why they have to call the police. Perfect teaser.

My own teaser is at Bookishgal.

I thought that this book looked interesting. Something about it "calls" to me. Not sure if it's the name or the cover, or what...

I don't know whether you accept awards, but I forgot to mention to you that I have something for you over at my blog:
