"Talk About It" + Teaser Tuesday

I love memes...

"Talk About It" Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at Thoughts of a Book Junky. You're meant to spotlight new and upcoming authors or books that you're dying to read.

So my pick is The Dead Detective by William Heffernan, which comes out on October 1st, 2010. It sounds like an awesome mystery/thriller with hints of supernatural. It's my kind of book and I can't wait to read it!

Harry Doyle was murdered as a ten-year-old child and brought back to life by two Tampa cops. Twenty years later he has dedicated his life to putting killers behind bars as a homicide detective who has the unwanted ability to hear the postmortem whispers of murder victims. Dubbed "The Dead Detective" by his fellow cops, Doyle now faces his most difficult case - a beautiful murder victim who was a notorious child molester. It is a case that will shake Harry to his very core.


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!

 I just recently finished the Twilight series and I remembered that I owned The Host. I never had the chance to read it, so I'm doing so now.

The Host: A NovelThat's how we realized you were here, you know, she said, thinking of the sickening news headlines again. When the evening news was nothing but inspiring human-interest stories, when pedophiles and junkies were lining up at the hospitals to turn themselves in, when everything morphed into Mayberry, that's when you tipped your hand.

~ Taken from page 108 of The Host by Stephenie Meyer

I wonder what news headline they are talking about, I need to go finish reading this. I'm only on page 44.
