Teaser Tuesdays-May 19, 2009

tuesday-t11Miz B and Teaser Tuesdays asks you to: Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page. Share with us two (2) 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!

cholton929-390-beach_trip_coveMy teaser comes from a book that will be on tour with TLC Book Tours beginning in June called Beach Trip by Cathy Holton.  Beach Trip is also the June selection for our Summer Reading Series.  The teaser comes from page 43 in my advance uncorrected proof but may be different in the finished book.  This is a fun read so far!

“Everyone was always going on and on about passion, but Annie could see how passion might really screw up your life.  It might keep you from thinking clearly.  It might make you do things you’d later regret.”

This character Annie is an uptight neat-freak perfectionist.  This part of the book is when she is in college, mopping the kitchen floor, and gazing out the window at her roommate who is sitting in the sun making out with her boyfriend.  Annie, Annie, Annie- you’re 21, a senior in college, it’s a warm spring day- throw down that mop and go have some fun!

  1. Nice teaser! And you’re right — how could a 21-year old really think that way? Good grief!

    My own teaser is up now too, at Bookishgal

  2. I am reading BAD TRAFFIC by Simon Lewis, which was nominated for the L.A. Times Book Prize in the Mystery/Thriller category. A Chinese Police officer, Jian, recieves a cryptic phone call from his daughter asking for help. He travels to England to try and find her. This excerpt is Jian with his daughter’s former roommate going to a restaurant where she worked to try and locate her:

    From page 38:

    “The illuminated signs outside the bus window all said the same thing – ‘You do not understand.’
    ‘She’s probably just ashamed that she dropped out and wanted to spare your feelings. And now she’s got inot some little trouble. There’s probably a man involved.'”

  6. I am currently reading The Household Guide to Dying by Debra Adelaide.

    “All that order and control, all those precisely measured, weighed and timed buns, nuggets and fillets. All those smug rows of junior burgers, Big Macs adn appple pies, slipping hygienically downm their stainless-steel chutes.”
    From the Uncorrected Proof
