Teaser Tuesday – The Body


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  4. 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!)
  5. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The BodySome of you probably thinking “eh? she is still reading this book! How long does it take to finish this book?”

Well…the answer is simple…it takes longer time because I am reading it in between other books. I read one novella and then read another novel by another author and then get back to the next novella on this book and so on.

I am now reading The Body, the third novella from Different Seasons by Stephen King.

I am going to cheat because I like a lot of quotes from this book. the story is about friendship.

Page 341

I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, did you?


I kept waiting for the trestle to start shaking under my feet. When that happened, it would be right behind us.
“oh gawd Gordie oh Gawd Gordie og Gawd Gordie oh Gawd AWWWWWWW SHEEEEYIT!”

Page 426

Even if I’d known the right thing to say, I probably couldn’t have said it. Speech destroys the function of love, I think – that’s a hell of a thing for a writer to say, I guess, but I believe it to be true.

    Great teasers, the last one is my favourite. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2011/01/teaser-tuesdays-small-wars.html

  2. LOL – I’ve got a book or two that I’m STILL reading – they are great, but I keep picking up others as well that have deadlines. 😉 Love your teasers!

      I read other books in between Different Seasons not because the other books are better or I have any deadline…it is because that is the way I want Different Seasons to be read, as 4 different novellas

    I kid myself that I have a couple of books that I am still reading, but really I haven’t picked them up for ages.

    I am sharing two teasers this week.

    This sounds like a book to be enjoyed and savored…of course it will take longer to read, especially if you enjoy it between other books.

    Great teasers…

    Here’s mine:

      Since the book consists of 4 unrelated novellas…I treat this book as if they are 4 different books

    Happy Teaser Tuesday!!! My teaser this week is for Mistwood by Leah Cypess which is currently discount on Amazon for only $6.50 for a new hardcover copy!!! I posted a link to the price! Finally, a great fantasy book that really feels like the older fantasy novels written by favorites like Tamora Pierce and Sharon Shinn!

    I can take months reading the books that I read between the books, if you know what I mean.

    This one’s got some interesting, quotable teasers in it.

    Stephen King scares me. I’ve never read him, but this looks interesting. Thanks for sharing. My teaser –> http://unautrehistoire.blogspot.com/2011/01/teaser-tuesday-7.html

      There are some books by him that are not all about scaring people. Different seasons is one of them.

Say something so I know you have read my post, THANK YOU for reading :)
