My Two Teasers:

By this time, the report of the accident had spread among the workmen and boatmen about the Cobb, and many were collected near them, to be useful if wanted, at any rate, to enjoy the sight of a dead young lady, nay, two dead young ladies, for it proved twice as fine as the first report. To some of the best-looking of these good people Henrietta was consigned, for, though partially revived, she was quite helpless; in this manner , Ann walking by her side, and Charles attending to his wife, they set forward, treading back with feelings unutterable, the ground which so lately, so very lately, and so light of heart, they passed along.

Vigil by Cecilia Samartin



But then, perhaps behind closed doors he wasn’t as I saw him. Perhaps I had invented a person who didn’t really exist and I had deluded myself into believing that he could rescue my dreams and correct all the wrongs I had endured.

My two teasers: The Luxe by Anna Godbersen

Mrs. Hayes had always been annoying, but ever since Penelope Hayes had discovered the engagement of her Future Husband and her Former Best Friend, she found every swallow or breath her mother took to be a personal affront to her sensibility.

She listened for rotund Mrs. Hayes to go back to her yapping, then crumpled the telegram and dropped it into a silver vase bursting with yellow roses.

My Teaser

This is from The Road by Cormac McCarthy. Its the very first book for my very first book club!

Shapes of dried blood in the stubble grass and gray coils of viscera where the slain had been field-dressed and hauled away. The wall beyond held a frieze of human heads, all faced alike, dried and caved with their taut grins and shrunken eyes.

My 2 “Teaser” Sentences for today:

For those unacquainted with scienfitic inquiry, it might seem ghoulish to express anticipation at the prospect of cutting open one’s coworker, but for us the dissection was as natural as conversation. The professor had made it widely known that not only would he instruct that an autopsy be conducted on him after death, but that he intended , as he was failing, to predict what the anatomist would find and expected the eventual results to be matched against his prognostication.

From Anatomy of Deception by Lawrence Goldstone

This is from The Addict by Michael Stein, a LT Early Reviewer book (p109).

Before Brian, there was another man who used opiates, who sat aroun watching TV, working occasionally, while she held this or that job for three or four months to pay for her share of the drugs.

Brian had recently talked about methadone treatment, and she could have chosen that instead of buprenorphine.
