Tuesday Teasers


A little tease from where I was:
With the boys Cerise had to do things their mother's way, striving to hover near the mark, as if she was never really alone with them, and this was what she could save back - hoard - for Sophie, that delicious feeling of going home on the bus to just us two.
~ pg 50 of "Slender Little Thing" from The Mechanics of Falling and Other Stories by Catherine Brady

A little tease from where I am:
She hung up. He now understood his chemistry teacher's notion of disassociation energy - very draining - and he wished he were bromine. Cherish every moment of diatomic moleculehood.
~ pg 98 The Brightest Moon of the Century by Christopher Meeks

A little tease from where I will be:
The weather service had promised fine weather for the entire weekend, but their promises were not very dependable. In Irene's opinion, you could put more stock in Eva Moller's crystal balls and spells, or magical formulas.

pg 216 The Glass Devil by Helene Tursten

  1. Well everyone knows that you predict the weather with crystal balls. I work in the same building as the Meteorology guys so trust me I know these things :)

    Great teasers! Hope you are having a good Tuesday.

  2. I think Irene has a point.

    And I'm left quite intrigued by the short story teaser!

  5. They're all great Wendy but I'm wondering if that last book might have some magical hints in it.

  6. Wendy, is the Helene Tursten teaster from her Scandinavian mystery series? I keep meaning to read that one. One of my mystery group members enthuses over it.

  11. Oh, I really like that last one. Maybe because I'm reading a book about witches and it's so good, I am tuned in to magic stuff. Excellent teaser. Here is my teaser

  13. Those are all great teasers. The Brightest Moon of the Century sounds really interesting. I don't remember much about bromine from my high school science class, but I don't think it's something I'd want to be. But then I'm not really sure what diatomic means, either.

  15. Fun teasers! I don't know how much of the second one I understand, but I liked it.

  16. Thank you everyone for stopping by! Those teasers do have a little hook in them, don't they?

    I've always suspected the meteorologists used crystals. ;-)

    Kay - Yes, The Glass Devil is a part of Helene Tursten's series. It will be the first one I've read by her and I'm really looking forward to it.
