Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, the weekly Meme that wants you to add books to your TBR, or just share what you are currently reading. It is very easy to play along:

• 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! Everyone loves Teaser Tuesday.

“Is this how you repay my goodness–with badness?” cried the boy. “Of course,” said the crocodile out of the corner of his mouth. “That is the way of the world.” – Roots: The Saga of an American Family by Alex Haley

    Someone seems to be in for a rude reality-check. Hope you enjoy!

    I’m teasing from The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee.

  2. Ali Wilson says:

    Great teaser. Have to admit I haven’t heard of the book but it sounds interesting.

    My teaser this week is from Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton:

  3. Sounds intriguing! Poor kid, because the croc is right!

    Here’s my teaser from Vigilante by Kady Cross! Happy reading!

  4. The quote reminds me of the fable about the scorpion and the frog. I vaguely remember reading Roots many many years ago, after seeing the mini-series. I hope you are enjoying the book!

    Here’s mine this week from Facebook group

  5. Sorry! My computer is giving me trouble. The link takes you to the right place, but I was in the process of correcting the name to The Handmaid’s Tale before it decided to post before I had a chance to correct it. Ugh. Facebook has nothing to do with it.

  6. A talking crocodile? Wish my pets could talk, especially when they aren’t feeling well! We have 6 this week: http://ourstack.blogspot.com/2017/01/tuesday-teasers.html

  7. Beth F says:

    That’s such a great book. Be sure to see the awesome mini-series too. I think there’s a newish one, but I loved the original.

    I’m playing today at Beth Fish Reads.

  8. Intriguing teaser! Hope you enjoy the rest!

    Here’s my Tuesday Post

  9. I liked the teaser! I’ll note it down. Here my TT for the week:

    Great choice. I watched the mini series but never did get to the book. Sadly, the quote is sometimes true.

    My TT from The Dog

  18. I too watched the movie but never read the book.
    sherry @ fundinmental My TT

  19. Majanka says:

    The crocodile is kind of rude.

    Here’s my teaser for this week.

  20. Tracy says:

    This definitely seems like a morality tale. I wonder what the boy did for the Croc and why he doesn’t want to return the favor? Poor kid, life lessons… My TT is from Kingdom’s End.

  21. Interesting teaser! Poor kid is getting ripped off, haha.
    My teaser this week is from Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi: https://kourtnireads.wordpress.com/2017/01/31/teaser-tuesday-13117/

    That’s a really strong teaser – I recall reading this one a long time ago and loving it, though found it very shocking in places. I hope you enjoy it.

  25. Rob says:

    Sure seems like that’s the case all too often, doesn’t it?

    Here’s my TT from “The Shining” by Stephen King: https://pubwrite.wordpress.com/2017/01/31/teaser-tuesday-the-shining-one-last-time/
