Teaser Tuesday (14): Past Perfect

Title: Past Perfect
Author: Leila Sales

I glared at him. "You came all the way to Essex just to spy on us?"
"Yeah." He smirked. "I crossed the street. It was really rough."

Ah, I do like a good bit of sarcasm... :-)

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 "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 and author too so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

Hi Rachel-
Just stopping by from the campaign. I'll play the teaser game :)

LOL. I do, too. :) Great teaser!

Hehehe! A good dose of sarcasm is wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Rachel! What fun- thanks! The excerpt you chose was great!

I'm a fellow campaigner in the Fantasy & YA categories. I'm not in your groups, but I wanted the fun of getting to know more writers. It's so great to meet you!

I had fun reading about you in your ABOUT ME tab. I loved where you wrote that when you grew up in South Africa, you spent a lot of that time living in your imagination. Fantastic!

I'll play! I'm reading Storyteller, by Sherry Isaac:

I crumpled then, words reduced to bubbles of spit on my lips. Jim gathered me up in his arms before I hit the ground.

Great idea!

Lynda R Young said...

Ha, great tease.
I love sarcasm too ;)

Cally Jackson said...

Hehehe. Cute. :-)

Melodie said...

Me, too! I'm reading The Distant Hours by Kate Morton. (she's sooo good.)

Perhaps Percy only imagined the rotting odor? It had been an unfortunate phantom lately; it turned out there were some things, once smelled, that could never be escaped.

Cortney said...

Definitely a teaser! It's on my TBR. I'm also a fellow campaigner, thanks for commenting on my challenge. Your blog is so fun! Nice to meet you!

I kissed him back. I forgot time. I forgot my feet.I forgot the people outside, waiting for us to rejoin the party. I forgot what happens when friends cross into this space. And if my lungs didn't fill, and my heart didn't beat without my intervention, I would have forgotten about them, too.

Twenty Boy Summer by Ockler.

Also I LOVE the cover of the book you chose, LOVE :D

Creepy Query Girl said...

Madeleine said...
