Teaser Tuesday

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:

"I knew opening that red door would destroy my life.
Yes, that sounds melodramatic and full of foreboding and I'm not big on either, and true, there was nothing menacing about the red door. In fact, the door was beyond ordinary, wood and four-paneled, the kind of door you see standing guard in front of three out of every four suburban homes, with faded paint and a knocker at chest level no one ever used and a faux brass knob."
Prologue, CAUGHT by Harlan Coben

Last week was so busy I haven't had time to start the book, so I choose to use the first paragraph of the Prologue as my teaser. This will be the first Harlan Coben book that I've read, though he has been on my TBR list for quite a while already. Really looking forward to starting this tonight and hoping that I enjoy it :)

What are you reading this week?

    I did read a book last week as a potential income starter. The book has been returned.

    LOL

    Maybe my next read will be worth keeping!

    Have a great day!
