Teaser Tuesday: The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney

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 & the author


'I pull the door open and do the one thing I should have done last night.


Because you're supposed to remember your first time.'

P. 7, The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney

• I've only started The Mockingbirds and I'm already in love with it! It's like a whirlwind of mystery and anticipation. Each page would leave you wondering how the problem would be solved and if she's willing to speak up. I feel like I'm already writing my review. Haha. :)) And the cover is adorable! Cute little bird. I'm wondering if they're selling the book in red or if that's an alternate temporary cover. I want a red one! End rant.

  8. Here is my teaser from Nature's Secret Messages: Hidden in Plain Sight by Elaine Wilkes (Page 3):

    "We lie in the lap of immense intelligence." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Stop. Look. Listen. My kindergarten teacher taught me that. I remember carefully lining up the tips of my patent-leather shoes exactly at the edge of the curb and stopping–then carefully looking to my right and left, quiet and aware, listening for any clues. Feeling that it was safe to proceed, I'd grasp my classmate's hand, jump off the curb, and happily venture into unknown territories on the other side of the street.

    Now I barely glance from side to side as I hurry on my way.

    What happened? Where did that wide-open feeling of awareness go? In the rush of adulthood, it seems to vanish, but what would happen if we simply stopped, looked and listened…even as busy adults?

    As a learning addict, I've hunted for insights through countless books, seminars, experts, masters and more. Eventually, I realized that my kindergarten teacher had it right from the beginning, long before I started my quest. Who knew that she was so profound?

  9. oh wow yeah you are supposed to remember your first time! in fact, you are supposed to remember all your times!
