Teaser Tuesday (August 30)


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of Books And A Beat.

Here’s what you do for Teaser Tuesday:

• 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!

I just finished my book last night and I haven’t picked up a new book yet.  So, I will use quotes from the book I just finished reading.  A review will be coming soon!  🙂


The Life We Bury by Allen Eskens

“Are you talking about killing or murdering?”

“Is there a difference?”

Mr. Iverson looked out the window as he pondered the question, not so much looking for the answer as contemplating whether to tell it to me.  I watched the tiny muscles in his jaw tighten a couple times before he answered, “Yes,” he said.  “There is a difference.  I’ve done both.  I’ve killed…and I’ve murdered.”

-pg 44 “The Life We Bury” by Allen Eskens

Sounds like a spoiler, but it’s not.  🙂

“You know nothing about me,” I said “you don’t know where I’ve been, or what I have to deal with.  You don’t know the shit I’ve had to wade through to get here.  Whether or not you tell me your story is up to you.  That’s your perogative.  But don’t presume to judge me.” I fought against the urge to stand up and walk out, holding on to the arm of the chair to keep me in my seat.

Iverson glanced down at my white knuckled grip, then at my eyes.  A hint of a smile, more subtle then a single flake of snow, crossed his face, and his eyes nodded in approval.  “That’s good,” he said.

“What’s good?”

“That you understand how wrong it is to judge someone before you know their whole story.”

-pg 44-45 “The Life We Bury” by Allen Eskens

That’s my teasers for this Tuesday.  Happy Tuesday!  Happy Reading!

  1. It really was a great story that makes you think. It’s full of dysfunctional characters, which from your teaser sounds like something you like reading about. Some of the characters stay in their dysfunction and some learn to be better. I enjoyed reading your teaser as well. It looks like another good book.
