It’s Tuesday, Where Are You? / Teaser Tuesdays

It’s Tuesday, Where Are You?

I’m in Istanbul in 1836, where one of the sultan’s soldiers has been found dead under most unusual circumstances, and three others are still missing.

The Janissary Tree by Jason Goodwin.

Teaser Tuesdays TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from - that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

"Ten days. To find out what is happening to my men."

From The Janissary Tree by Jason Goodwin, p. 15.


  1. Now I'm wondering what happens if he doesn't find out in ten days. Excellent teaser!

  2. Oh dear! What did happen to his men?
    This isn't the usual type of book that I read, but it sounds pretty good. Might have to check it out :)
    HERE is my teaser for the first day of June!

  3. Short but intense. Great teaser. Mine is at The Crowded Leaf.

  4. Interesting teaser. I wonder what will happen?!!

    Here's my TEASER.

  5. I wonder what's happening to his men? This looks different. I'll look for your review! Here's my teaser for The Smoke Thief.
