Teaser Tuesdays - A World I Never Made

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!


Since I'm just starting this book, I didn't want to go too far into it and spoil it for myself, so sticking to the first page of Chapter 1. I'm going to cheat a tiny bit and do more than two sentences to keep it in context.



"Dad,

I don't owe you or anybody an explanation, but I think you'll appreciate the irony of a suicide note coming from a person who has abhored tradition all of her life. I met a young girl on the street the other day who looked into my eyes and told me that Jesus was waiting for me in heaven. She was fourteen or so, selling flowers on the Street of Flowers, and had the look of a young Madonna. The red roses I bought from her were the last thing I saw before pulling the trigger.

If, as you read this, I am actually with Jesus in heaven, I will be one shocked woman. I doubt it, though. Megan Nolan is no more. Go and have yourself another daughter. It's not too late, and the odds are very good that she will turn out better than I did. If I were famous, I would be joining the long line of suicides known to history. But as it is, in a matter of days, if not hours, my life and death will be as anonymous and as forgotten as a stray breeze. (page 3)



"A World I Never Made" is a suspense novel written by James LePore and a first time author read for me.

For more teaser's head on over to MizB's and see what everyone else is reading.

  1. I just started my book too and I did not want to spoil it for myself! I wonder if she was really murdered? Never have read James LePore.

  4. Amazing teaser! You know, I've often thought it would be fun to have a Friday Firsts, where we share the first paragraph of the book we are reading - you can usually get a very good feel for the book that way!
