Teaser Tuesdays (1)

Rules: 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!

Book: Lullabies for Little Criminals
Author: Heather O'Neill

This is my first ever Teaser Tuesday, so I'm pretty excited! I'm not too far into this book yet, so here's a teaser that I took from the first few pages:

"I spotted a big rock on the ground. I picked it up and pretented it was an injured bird and held it in my hand and stroked it."

Hehe, stroking a rock, interesting. Hope you have fun doing Teaser Tuesday, and happy reading! :)

Now that's appreciating nature :P (We talk a lot about that in class, hehe). Great teaser!

Thanks everyone! Yes, it's a very strange sentence!

Great teaser!! Glad to see you are starting Teaser Tuesday. It's a love of fun and is sure to add many, many books to your 2-read list! :)

BTW - I love Agatha Christie as well!

tweezle: Thanks so much! Yes, I'm happy to be starting it. It's similar to The Friday 56 which I've also started to do. But that's ok!
