Teaser Tuesdays - November 29, 2011

Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along; you don't have to be a blogger! 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!



My teaser this week: 
11/22/63 by Stephen King
This was one night in a small town, one of those burgs off the main road that nobody cares about much except for the people who live there.  And that's okay, because they care.  I looked at Bobbi Jill, sobbing into her hands.  I looked at Sadie. There was cream in her hair.  She smiled.  So did I.  She mouthed I love you, George.  I mouthed back I love you, too.  That night I loved all of them, and myself for being with them.  I never felt so alive or happy to be alive.  How could I leave all this, indeed?
The blow-up came two weeks later.

- page 423, 11/22/63 by Stephen King (The Book Depository / Amazon)

More than two sentences, but I think this really sets a mood.

Goodreads description:

November 22nd, 1963 was a rapid-fire sequence of indelible moments: Shots ring out; a president slumped over; a race to the Dallas hospital; an announcement, blood still fresh on the First Lady's dress. But what if President John F. Kennedy didn't have to die; if somehow his assassin could have been thwarted? For Maine schoolteacher Jake Epping, those hypothetical what if's become real possibilities when he walks through a portal to the past. Without special skills and still unfamiliar with his new/old surroundings, he struggles to discover a way to change the history he left. Like its Under the Dome predecessor, Stephen King's 960-page novel shows that this master of suspense is back at the top of his game.


This one's a tome, but Stephen King rocks!  The last tome of his that I read, "Under the Dome", seemed to FLY!

Feel free to leave your teaser or link to it in the comments section; I find that I always end up adding to my to-buy list when I visit!

  4. Great teaser. I'm reading King's On Writing right now, but have never read anything else by him. It makes me want to. Maybe this will be the one... thanks for sharing!

  5. I don't usually read Stephen King because I'm not a fan of the horror genre, but I have this one on my TBR list as it sounds fascinating. I hope you are enjoying it, and I look forward to your review.

Comments make me feel all squishy happy inside, so drop a line if you see or read something interesting! PLEASE don't leave links to your blog or page unless the post you're replying to specifically asks you to leave a link!
Sorry that I had to re-enable word verification, but without it, there was far too much spam coming in - the only other option would have been to require only registered (Google, OpenID, etc.) comments, which might require you, the commenter, to go through even MORE steps just to comment!
