Teaser Tuesday: Looking for JJ and goodies!

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!

From page 41 of Looking For JJ by Anne Cassidy:
"As soon as she'd seen the photograph in the newsagent's shop window she'd known that there would be others....Someone, the detective in the greasy leather jacket perhaps, was hanging round the corners of her life, waiting to walk up behind her one day and lay an accusing hand on her shoulder."

These two lines aren't technically next to each other, but I thought they made a better teaser together.

As for goodies, I meant to post about this last week when I received them: I got books in the mail! I finally understand online book-buying. I always preferred going to the store and looking thorugh the shelves, but now? I totally get the hype of buying online. I was so excited when I got home to find a big box of books just waiting for me! I finally spent my Barnes and Noble gift cards from Christmas (I know, new personally record for how long I kept book gift cards in my possession). I received (last week):

Dear John by Nicholas Sparks
Heist Society by Ally Carter
Avalon High Coronation #3: Hunter's Moon by Meg Cabot
Mystery book that cannot be revealed, for it is a follower of this blog's birthday present!

I've already finished Dear John, and I am so excited to read Heist Society! I love Ally Carter's Gallagher Girls series, so I'm pretty pumped for this new book!

I'm so sorry for my recent silence. School is getting more and more hectic, so I am just trying to manage that and basketball. It should get better soon, I promise!

What are your teasers this Tuesday?


  1. Page 205 of Mitch Albom's newest book, Have a Little Faith. Great book about his true experience with two preachers of different faiths - you don't have to be religious to enjoy it!

    When he left, all I wanted to do was run upstairs and buy more dope and get high again. But I didn't want to spend this man's money that way. So I ran across the street and bought lunch meat, crackers - anything so I don't spend it on drugs.

  2. I've been wanting to read Dear John and Heist Society looks really good-i love the cover.

    Great teaser!
