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.

It was a tough toss choosing between The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R.Tolkien and White Oleander by Janet Fitch, for the teaser this week. Finally, I chose the one that sounded more suspenseful!


He broke a windowpane. I could tell he hadn't intended to because he hesitated, and then, in a sudden burst of courage, he thrust his arm through the window and fumbled for the latch. She crossed the room faster than I could have believed possible, lifted her arm and stabbed him in the hand.

~ Pg. 31, White Oleander by Janet Fitch.
