Teaser Tuesday

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!

________________________________

Well, I'm gonna have to cheat just a little bit. I've got a great teaser, but it's several little bitty sentences, and there's no way that 2 of them will get the point across. But trust me, I think you might like it even if it's about 7 sentences instead of 2. :o)

My teaser is from A Steal of a Deal by Ginny Aiken. This is book 2 in the Shop-Til-U-Drop Series.

Then my stomach growls--head-to-toe blush time.

Aunt Weeby and Miss Mona laugh.

"Hungry?" Robert asks.

Embarrassed, that's what. Can you imagine? I come to this incredible place, and my very mundane, lowbrow belly decides to tell everyone I'm dying to stuff my face. Good grief.

I'm loving this series! If you're interested, I have a review of book 1, Priced to Move, posted here.

  1. Good one, Christy! I've read this first book, Priced to Move, and I have the 2nd and 3rd in my TBR piles. Your teaser makes me want to grab A Steal of a Deal and start reading! Don't you just love Aunt Weeby and Miss Mona! :)

  2. This is a great teaser! This has happened to me many times...the stomach growling at exactly the wrong moment! The worst is when you're in class taking a test and all is quiet but the stomach! :-P

    Thanks for sharing!

    Here's my teaser!

  3. Lori - I particularly love Aunt Weeby...and it's just so cute to know how she got her name, and that EVERYONE calls her that!

    Renee - Thank the Lord that I have never had my stomach start to growl on me in the middle of class...or anywhere else equally embarrassing, either! LOL!

  6. My stomach does that all the time. I totally understand that embarrassment.

    I love book series so I'll have to go read up on this one.
