Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading and it asks us to...



  • 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's my teaser this week:

The bastards would have never even gotten close to me if I hadn't had the flu.

Coughing, sneezing, aching wheezing. That was me. Gin Blanco. Restaurant owner. Stone and Ice elemental. Former Assassin. And all-around badass. Laid low by a microbe.

Venom - Jennifer Estep pg 1

"It's probably difficult to imagine what life was like on Henderson by the time I reached my seventeenth birthday -- the day everything was to change. We were two very different generations, separated by at least twenty-five years. We Youngers thought of the island as our entire universe, while the Elders thought of everything in terms of their 'Old World.'" www.stansleap.com
