Teaser Tuesday (08-03-10 edition)

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!
Today's Teaser:

Note: Today's teaser is especially graphic. Don't read if you are sensitive. Since I always choose ahead in the book from where I am for "teasers", this is new to me, too! I'll be excited to see what happened to Rory!

Lester pried away the boy's hands and saw the red, welling socket. The remains of the eye itself were dangling on Rory's cheek. As he turned his head up to Lester, the splattered remains plopped into the grass.

-- Under the Dome by Stephen King, page 210

I'm not a big fan of his books, but this teaser is pretty good! Might have to check out the book further.

HERE is my teaser for this week.

You weren't kidding about it being a graphic teaser...but it was sure a good one! Thanks for sharing it.

Eek! Haha. I really want to read this book. I haven't read much by him, but this one really catches my eye. My teaser is at The Crowded Leaf.

I find Stephen King's books difficult to engage in. Thatbeing said, I love his movies...and the cover for this book is absolutely stunning. I hope that you enjoy your book. Here's my Tuesday Teaser
