Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

Just do the following to participate:

Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two (2) 'teaser' sentences from somewhere on that page
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I decided on 2 this week so I can include my holiday read.

Teaser from pg 72
"Flavia," I said as I paused for a moment at the door.  "Flavia Sabina Dolores de Luce." The "Sabina" was real enough; "Dolores" I invented on the spot.
Flavia is my favourite character of the year, is my review.
Teaser from short story Why Do You Reward Me Thus?
Four calling Birds?  Three French hens?  Two turtle doves?  What are turtle doves and why would anybody want one of them, let alone two?  And a partridge in a pear tree?  Where the (****) was this person shopping?"
Happy Holidays, I look forward to reading your Teasers.

  8. Great teasers! I've really been wanting to read The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie.

  9. ROFL I LOVE it!! Thanks for sharing :) You can find my teaser at The Bookish Snob Merry Christmas!

  10. Here is my teaser from Lipstick in Afghanistan by Roberta Gately (Page 1):

    "Do you hear it?" The voice was almost a whisper.

    Elsa held her breath, and then she heard it too, a faint rustling of footsteps over twigs and leaves. Out of the corner of her eye, she glimpsed several shadowy figures darting through the trees, and when she turned, she saw a glint of sunlight reflecting off the barrel of an assault rifle.

    There was no denying it—the Taliban had found them.

    Oh, Jesus! she thought. We'll never escape.

    Elsa knew the Taliban's ruthless hatred; the death and destruction they wrought was undeniable.

    Seized by a sickening wave of fear, she wanted to cry or throw up, but there was no time. She tried to catch Parween's eye, but her friend was looking back, intent on finding the source of the sound.

    "Run!" someone shouted, and suddenly, the chase was on.

  11. Those are both wonderful teasers! I loved Flavia, too. And, yeah, that twelve days of Christmas song always bothered me, too.

  12. LOL , love the cover of the second one and the teaser cracks me up, wondered the same thing everytime I sing the song .
