Tuesday Teaser

Tuesday Teaser is a weekly bookish meme (rhymes with “cream"), hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. (I’ve borrowed it from LDS Women’s Book Review.) Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share at least 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’m adapting the rules slightly: I’ll be quoting some random lines from the last chapter I read before I post my teaser. I'm a slow reader, so you may get multiple teasers per book. This teaser is from Chocolate Roses:

While the last few plates were cleared away, drums beat and hips began swaying. I went back to my seat as Jill came out wheeling a cart full of pineapple upside-down cake, minus the dollop of chocolate I had suggested, and while we ate dessert, we watched the hula dancers. Even Winnie seemed delighted when Willa came out with a lit torch and began eating fire. That girl stuffed the torch right down her throat.

From Chocolate Roses, by Joan Sowards, p 132

If you'd like to share a Teaser from a book you're currently reading, I'd love you to do so in the comment section. And you don't even have to share it on a Tuesday! Be sure to include the title, author, and page number in case others would like to check out the book you're reading, too!

Love the cover of this book! Probably because I love chocolates. By the way, I love your blog's new look!

Thanks, Laura. I was excited when I found this new template. I love it, too! :-)
