Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

- 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!

He'd never been closer than a hundred yards from an active zom before. The older kids said that if you looked into a zom's eyes, your reflection would show you how you'd look as one of the living dead.

You have to tell me if you liked this one...I have been wanting to get it just haven't read a review about it...Sounds interesting from your teaser!

Nice teaser! It's also sort of a teaser for the character, who sounds really, really tempted to look into a zombie's eyes to see whether the rumour is true!

Sullivan McPig said...

@Heidi: expect a review soon!

Interesting teaser! I think I might get annoyed with the shortening of zombie to 'zom,' but perhaps one gets used to it.

I love the pigs with the books!

I'm finding several blogs that are new to me by visiting Teaser Tuesday posts.

I have a teaser two-fer on Rose City Reader.

Great teaser! I loved it! Hope you will like mine too. It is from Love is Hell, the collection of short stories with a teaser for each one!

Great teaser, haven't heard of the book before.

My teaser is at BookSake.

I already look bad enough. I don't need to be looking in any zombie eyes.

Jen at Introverted Reader said...

That's a pretty freaky idea! I'd be tempted, but I guess if I was close enough to a zombie to see myself in his eyes, I'd probably be turning into a zombie soon enough and finding out for real anyway. ;-)

Sullivan McPig said...

I think that's indeed a very likely scenario :-p

Okay....eww. I am not a fan of zombies...they creep the hell out of me.

Rule # 1: Never look into the eyes of a zombie.

Sorry for the late posting...and thanks for stopping by my blog. :)
