Today's Read: Dreaming Anastasia by Joy Preble

When I went to the Chicago ballet with my best friend, Tess, I thought the most memorable part was going to be the dancing or maybe the music. But instead it's that tall boy with dark hair and blue eyes I remember. Why was he staring at me? And it wasn't a flirty kind of stare either, it was way too intense. That night I dream of a girl, and there is shooting, shouting, and blood.

MizB at Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Here's how it works: Grab your current read; let the book fall open to a random page; and share 2 “teaser” sentences from that page. For more teasers, click on through to MizB's blog.

[T]his time the dream changed. This time, she was doing the dreaming. And it was a dream she was struggling not to have. But let me say, she was spectacularly unsuccessful at stopping it. And so was I. (p. 17)

Sounds like a good teaser for that book. I always passed on that one from our reading egroups. Maybe I'll go back to it someday.

Great teaser! Why is that boy staring???

From your teasers I'm guessing the book is intense and rather mysterious.

Thanks for the teaser; it really makes the story sound interesting, and one to be read.

My own teaser is at Bookishgal.

Veens 9/22/09, 9:53 PM  

The first one actually was intriguing.. and then the 2nd one ..was just wow!

Good one..

These are both fantastic teasers! Look forward to reading what your think.

Ana S. 9/23/09, 3:58 AM  

Definitely a good teaser!

J.T. Oldfield 9/23/09, 8:02 PM  

Great teaser...though i didn't really realize it was a teaser at first. I was like, Beth, why are you checking out some dude in Chicago? Scandalous! LOL!

Dawn @ sheIsTooFondOfBooks 9/23/09, 9:47 PM  

LOL! I had the exact same thought as J. T. Oldfield - when did she go to the ballet (cuz with twitter, apparently I think I know *everything* you do)? and why is this guy looking at her? Does Mr. BFR know about this?

OK, I get it now ... good teasers and Where Am I Tuesday!
