Teaser Tuesdays

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 with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.

I can sort of see why The Help is such a popular book. I didn't get much reading time for the past two days, but the few pages I read are giving me a good impression of the book!


The footsteps stop. My heart is thumping like a cat in a clothes dryer. What if Miss Celia pretends she doesn't know me so she won't get in trouble? Acts like I'm a burglar? Oh, I hate her! I hate that stupid woman!

~ Pg. 53, The Help by Kathryn Stockett.

I have this book sitting right on my shelf and still haven't had a chance to get to it. I haven't heard a bad review yet. Great teaser! I'm going to have to get to this one soon!

I see this book everywhere but for some reason remain uninterested. Maybe it's overexposure. Good teaser though.
