Teaser Tuesday – Sept 7th 2010

The Secret by Eva Hoffman

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!

Here is my teaser for this week from page 56 of The Secret by Eva Hoffman: “After that the letters slowed down to a trickle – two, three a year – then stopped. I couldn’t figure out what transpired exactly, whether there had been a final breach or only a growing disappointment and a gradual cooling off; but as the letters fizzled out my resentment rose.”

Please feel free to leave a comment and add your own Teaser Tuesday, either in the text or as a link.

    The book sounds interesting. I got this line from Amazon and it made me want to read the book: “I was her, I was her, I was her… Then who was I, who was she, what had she done? Did she steal my soul, my very self, or did she give me her own, by an unspeakable act of black magic?”

    Thanks for this teaser. My teaser is just a light read.

      Hi Anne,
      I had literally just started The Secret, but have had to put it to one side whilst I read another book for review. So your teaser has actually added to my own tease! The line you quote sounds almost poetic, looking forward to picking it back up even more now.


  2. I am intrigued by the teaser! I will check it out!
