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!
The Team’s first meeting came twenty-nine days after the Achill demonstration, a delay caused by political indecision in high places, an indecision which was put aside only after chilling developments worldwide.
O’Neill’s disease, now being called the white plague because of the pallor of its victims and white blotches that appeared on the extremities, obviously was not being contained in Ireland, Britain and Libya.
pg. 60 of The White Plague by Frank Herbert.
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your 2 ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!

Chilling teaser. These kinds of plague books scare me to death because that kind of thing could happen.
I think that’s why plague zombies scare me much more than the average undead ones.
A modern day plague, definitely a scary but realistic scenario. Enjoy!
Thanks, and thanks for dropping by!
That sounds really interesting. Are you enjoying it?
It’s a bit different from what I expect of Herbert, but yeah!
I agree. I find these kinds of books a little more frightening than horror stories. Kaye-the road goes ever ever on
They’ve got their own special brand of horror, I find! Thanks for dropping by.
Oooh I really like the sound of this one! Great teaser. I have two this week at The Crowded Leaf.
Thanks for popping by!
Ohh…chilling! And I was shivering already from the cold!
Heh, I’m glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for dropping by.
Sounds like something I would read.
