Teaser Tuesdays 12.23

Welcome to Teaser Tuesdays!
TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
  • Grab your current read

  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
    Please avoid spoilers!
I'm especially excited to share my teaser sentences today! They are from an advanced copy of Jamie Ford's debut novel, HOTEL ON THE CORNER OF BITTER AND SWEET.

Keiko nodded slowly, contemplating its effects as she looked around the barren streets. "No Japanese are allowed outside of our neighborhoods from eight o'clock at night to six in the morning. We are prisoners at night." ~ page 94.

This book is scheduled to be released January 27th, 2009.


  1. Now that's not a book or author I have heard anything about, but the teaser and the cover image make we want to find out more!

  2. Oh, I agree with everyone! The teaser, cover, and title have hooked me!

  3. Oh - I hope an early copy arrives at my doorstep! I've heard wonderful things about this book, and it takes place right here in Seattle!
