Teaser Tuesdays are hosted by Should Be Reading. The rules are as follows:
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!
Here are mine for the day from my current reads. I may have cheated a bit (it is so hard to stick to only two lines), but I really liked both of these teasers.
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson (Signet Classic Edition) page 71
"Time ran on; thousands of pounds were offered in reward, for the death of Sir Danvers was resented as a public injury; but Mr. Hyde had disappeared out of the ken of the police as though he had never existed. Much of his past was unearthed, indeed, and all disreputable: tales came out of the man's cruelty, at once so callous and violent; of his vile life, of his strange associates, of the hatred that seemed to have surrounded his career; but of his present whereabouts, not a whisper."
What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell page 213
"Headlines. Words that once you read upside down, that popped out at you at a newstand as you roller-skated by, or from the kitchen table as you went by to grab an apple from a yellow bowl on the kitchen counter. BODY and BLONDE and MURDER. Now they were about us."
