Teaser Tuesday #48

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 teasers:

"I didn't give him a chance to finish. One after the other, my fists pounded his face, determined to break off that smirk for good."

Page 80 from Hearts in Exile by Mysti Parker

This was a pretty good story. You can check out my review if you are interested in it.

"I was surprised that he gave his real name to a stranger. Everyone in our tribe had two names, the real one which was secret and was seldom used, and one which was common, for if people use your secret name it becomes worn out and loses its magic."

Page 5 from Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell

I listened to the audio and have written my review on it along with my thoughts of the 1964 movie version.


  1. Pounding his face. Poor guy. I wonder what he did?
    Your second tease also sounds intriguing. Secret names which wear out... Hmm?
