Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* 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 and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!

So now that NaNoWriMo is over, I'm able to do a Teaser Tuesday again!  Hooray!
This week the Teaser is from Towers of Midnight (again - sorry!  I haven't been able to read much!).  However, I'm going to cheat a little bit - this is not a random quote.  It's also a little longer than two sentences.  But I came across it and thought it was great, so I'm going to use it for the Teaser this week!

The Tease:
""But son," Bryne said, leaning forward. "A man is more than one drive, one goal.  No woman wants that in a man.  It seems to me that men who spend time making something of themselves - rather than professing their devotion - are the ones who get somewhere.  Both with women, and with life itself."  Bryne rubbed his chin.  "So, if I have advice for you, it's this: Find out who you would be without Egwene, and then figure out how to fit her into that.""  - Towers of Midnight, by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson.

What's your Tease?


  1. I have not read this book, but I think I shall after reading this teaser. My TT:

  2. Hello Sunny,

    This is not my usual genre, but I loved the teaser paragraph.

    Sometimes it is difficult to find a new tease for each week, isn't it?

    I do not get as much time to read as I once did and I am frankly amazed at the volume of books some of our fellow bloggers can consume in a week.


  3. Is always good to be who YOU want to be rather than who other people want you to be. Very profound teaser :)

  4. Instersting advice. I have a friend who's read EVERYTHING Robert Jordan but I, myself, have never read his books.

  5. I am a bit intimidated to start this series! So many books.

    My teaser comes from Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly
