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!
So, did I tell you I have added a few more bloggers to Better Read Than Dead? Oh, good. Thought maybe I'd forgotten! I have teasers from almost everyone this week! Yay!!!
Series: Nevermore #1
Author: Kelly Creagh
Kelly McGeer just reviewed this book, but here's her teaser anyway!
Teaser: She tilted her head back to follow their scattered flight. Shielding her eyes from the sun, she caught a glimpse of several dark figures peering down at her and Gwen from the ledge of the roof.
That couldn't be right.

Title: Fool-Proofing Your Life
Author: Jan Silvious
Teaser #1 "A fool finds no pleasure in understanding but delights in airing his own opinions" (Proverbs 18:2) You probably know people like this and can even put a face with this description. This is the immediately recogizable individual who blusters and draws attention to herself. She tells you what she thinks and doesn't wait for a rebuttal. As far as she is concerned, there is no rebuttal that will stand. She is right, and if you don't believe her, just ask her! Of course, daring to say you have doubts will usually get you in trouble, so it often feels better to just let the issue pass uncontested. A person who can bear no challenge and who lets you know it by her behaviour is an angry individual.
Teaser #2 Foolproofing our lives isn't easy. Our fools are lovable...and cunning. Engaging..and threatening. Learning to relate to them without being sucked into their emotional undertow takes time and tenacity. But to a person, the people I have talked with who have successfully altered the "balance of power" in their most difficult relationships say things like, "I have a new identity, improved self-esteem, freedon to be an adult, the ability to hear God, and phenomenal spiritual vitality."
Teaser: "I wonder..." he said when I could sink no lower. I was flat on my back again, ignoring the discomfort the pressure was causing my stitches. He leaned completely over me, trapping me between his hands and hovering at arms length directly above me. His eyes were wtill quizzical, and yet they burned, almost wild, as he stared down at me.
