Teaser Tuesday



MizB of Should Be Reading hosts this cool weekly event. Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page.

Share (2) “teaser” sentences from that page. Share the title & author of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR list if they like your teaser. Please avoid spoilers!



THE E-MAILS ALWAYS began the same way.

Hi Auden!!

It was the extra exclamation point that got me. My mother would call it extraneous, overblown, exuberant. To me, it was simply annoying, just like everything else about my stepmother, Heidi.


Something a little bit different, page 1, the first paragraph of Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen




To celebrate my 1st Blogoversary two lucky readers can take their pick from a choice of 6 books in this month's spookalicious competition. Check this blog post for details. International entrants welcome.

  4. A very intersting way to view an exclamation point as I generally assume happiness. I'm a glass is half-full kinda girl :)
    Very cool teaser!

  9. Great teaser. Makes me want to know more about Heidi and her stepmother. Is she really this evil person or is Heidi just creating drama?

  11. How funny to see the view point of the extra exclamation point from the other side. When I'm really excited about something I'll sometimes use 2 or 3 but never really thought about how annoying that could be to someone not so excited or happy.

    My teaser is here!! ;)
