Teaser Tuesday 1#

Teaser Tuesday 1# 
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly book meme that is 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!
Here are my TWO teasers from Doctor Who, The Stone Rose - Jacqueline Rayner:

"Rose's youthful beauty captured forever. Even petrified, the strength shone out of her face. No one could look at this and not realise what a special person she was."
pg. 148

"The Doctor laughed harshly - inhumanly - and Mickey took a step back. 'Woah! Didn't mean to step on your toes, man.'
'This isn't a statue of Rose,' the Doctor said. Mickey looked confused. 'What're you talking about? Course it is. Think I don't know Rose when I see her?'
'No, you don't,' said the Doctor. 'Because you're looking at her right now. This isn't a statue of Rose. This is Rose herself. Rose has been turned into stone.'


  1. Nice teaser!

  2. Harry potter and the order of the phoenix by JK Rowling.

    'Yes, well,' said Hermione hastily, 'moving on ... the point is, are we agreed we want to take lessons from Harry?"

    ' I, personally, am at a loss to see why the Ministry has foisted such a useless teacher on us at this critical period."

  3. Love the stone Rose

  4. What a fantastic idea! Sounds like fun! Like check it out! :D

    A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin:
    "She pressed the blade deeper into Jinglebell's throat. The lackwit rolled his eyes at her in mute appeal...Ser Ryman and Black Walder were circling round her back, but Catelyn did not care. They could do as they wished with her; imprison her, rape her, kill her, it made no matter. She had lived too long and Ned was waiting. It was Robb she feared for. "On my honor as a Tully," she told Lord Walder, "on my honor as a Stark, I will trade your boy's life for Robb's. A son for a son." Her hand shook so badly she was ringing Jinglebell's head.
    Boom, the drum sounded, boom doom boom doom. The old man's lips went in and out. The knife trembled in Catelyn's hand, slippery with sweat. "A son for a son, heh," he repeated. "But that's a grandson...and he never was much use."
    A man in dark armor and a pale pink cloak spotted with blood stepped up to Robb. "Jaime Lanister sends his regards."

    "You must not balk, whatever is asked of you," the Halfhand had said. "Ride with them, eat with them, fight for them, for as long as it takes." He'd ridden many leagues and walked for more, had shared their bread and salt, and Ygritte's blankets as well, but they still did not trust him. Day and night the Thenns watched him, alert for any signs of betrayal. He could not get away and soon it would be too late.

  5. I like the 1st one, reminds me of a beautiful creature turned by Medusa.
