Dotting the I(ntro)s And Crossing The T(easer)s



It's Tuesday! And you know what that means... it's time for Tuesday Intros and Teaser Tuesday!

So to take part in Tuesday Intros all you have to do is share the first paragraph of the first chapter of the book you are currently reading or are going to read. Then head over to Bibliophile by the Sea to add your link and check out other intros.

And to take part in Teaser Tuesday go to a random page in the book you are reading, being careful not to include spoilers pick 2 teaser sentences from that page and share. Then tootle over to Should Be Reading to add your link and see other teasers.

Here are mine:

Tuesday Intro

In one way, at least, our lives really are like movies. The main cast consists of your family and friends. The supporting cast is made up of neighbors, co-workers, teachers, and daily acquaintances. There are also bit players: the supermarket checkout girl with the pretty smile, the friendly bartender at the local watering hole, the guys you work out with at the gym three days a week. And there are thousands of extras - those people who flow through every life like water through a sieve, seen once and never again. The teenager browsing graphic novels at Barnes & Noble, the one you had to slip past (murmuring 'Excuse me') in order to get to the magazines. The woman in the next lane at the stoplight, taking a moment to freshen her lipstick. The mother wiping ice cream off her toddler's face in a roadside restaurant where you stopped for a quick bite. The vendor who sold you a bag of peanuts at a baseball game.

Teaser Tuesday

He was gone from our lives a week later, and he went alone. Patsy and Morris - dubbed Tag-Along-Morrie by the kids in MYF - were already gone by then.

Not into Stephen King, but a good teaser.

I have been hearing good things about Revival. King is hit and miss for me, but this one does sound good.

I'm not a Stephen King fan so I'd probably pass. Enjoy your book and Have a nice week. kelley—the road goes ever ever on

Most of Stephen King's novels are too scary for me! But I really like the opening of this one. He's such a keen observer of people!
My Tuesday post features A LOVE BEYOND.

I like the cover you have for Revival. I read this one and liked it, but didn't love it. The INTRO, on the other hand is awesome IMO. enjoy

No matter how long it's been between reading his books, his openings always feel like coming home. Love The King!
