Teaser Tuesdays - July 21st

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!
Here are my teasers:

"we were the only ones one the block, but pounding music and smoky plumes of pine incense trialed out of a high window. a beautiful man was standing in a doorway with a beautiful woman, whispering things to her that made her giggle. we both stood there with longing, watching them --"
p. 139 Gothic Lolita by Dakota Lane

"It was dark inside the flat because the curtains across the glass balcony doors had been closed. (By Grandad? By the police?) We didn't open them."

p. 193 Tamar: A Novel of Espionage, Passion, and Betrayal by Mal Peet


  1. The Gothic Lolita teaser was gorgeous and the Tamar one makes me want to find out what's happening. I love Teaser Tuesdays. :)

  2. Hey this is fun! I'm gonna do it sometime! And this book sounds good!
