Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesdays - July 8th

Every Tuesday Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where we share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us?

If you'd like to play along on Teaser Tuesdays, just click the button above.

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!

This week, I'm reading...

Seated on a rolled carpet, Abby Soares stared at the bare walls like a new patient at the asylum. Once a friendly forest green, the paint was now dingy and faded - except where family pictures had recently been removed. She shook her head. "What a mess," she muttered. The words traveled through the empty room and echoed down the hall. It was the loneliest, most sorrowful sound. She stood and dusted off her backside. As she reached the door, she looked back once. "Good-bye," she pushed past the lump in her throat. There was silence.

What do you think? Would you continue reading?


  1. A friend of mine just read this book. She gave it a good review. Will need to look more into it.

    My TT

  2. Nice intro. I like the sound of this one.

    My Tuesday post:

  3. I like it and would read more. Thanks for sharing with us once again. Have a good week Yvonne

  4. I think I'd have to read a bit more to be sure, but it sound like it has potential.

  5. It got my interest, would like to read more. Off to check out the reviews on this one.

  6. This intro really hit home since it reminded me of when we moved from what was sort of my childhood home. It was really strange looking at the empty rooms and knowing you'd never see them again! Thanks for sharing :)

  9. Okay, I'm intrigued. Will have to check this one out. Mine: Daring to Dream

  10. The author did such a good job of describing the setting and the mood. I like the reference to the family pictures that had recently been removed. Sounds so lonely.
    My Teaser is from RYELEE’S COWBOY.

  11. I am curious, but would have to read more to be sure. I have moved many times in my life, and that last look around an empty house can be very melancholy.

  15. I'm captured by both the beginning and the cover art. I'd keep reading. I hope you enjoy your book. kelley—the road goes ever ever on

  16. That introductory paragraph makes me feel sad for the person. Now I want to know more.

  17. That's quite an intro. It's sad but makes me want to know the situation. I'd definitely keep reading.

  18. Great teaser, I'm left wanting to know what happens for sure.
