Teaser Tuesdays #106


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading.

• 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!

My Teaser:

Ophelia by Lisa Klein

I am stoked that I am finally reading this book. It has been in my TBR pile for years now. This is the story of Ophelia from William Shakespeare's Hamlet, one of my favorite plays. I hope it's not a disappointment.

"If your teacher has to die, August isn't a bad time of the year for it. You know August."

The Teacher's Funeral: A Comedy in Three Parts by Richard Peck

I found this book among the hundreds of books in the classroom's shelves. The title intrigued me and I had to read it. The opening chapter was a grabber but I am finding myself having a hard time focusing as I continue to read it. I hope it's just me.



What is your teaser?

  1. Too great teasers. I'm not much of a Shakespeare fan but I hope you enjoy Ophelia too. The Teacher's Funeral sounds like a fun read. Hopefully you'll get back into it.

  2. I agree is a teacher has to die August isn't a bad time for it- neither is May. Since May is when school gets out here.

  3. Nice teasers! Not sure I get the second one...no one's named August, right? Or is just because August is when school starts? LOL!

    Here's my Tuesday post

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. No one was named August but I can see how it could be confusing.
