"That's the trouble with getting drunk with your cousins," Sandor said. "They tell everything you did. We called Diane the Duchess because she always tried to boss everyone around." [p. 105]Yes, cousins can be hard to handle – drunk or sober. Not that I ever made a habit of getting drunk with any of mine. Of course, in my family I was usually the cousin bossing all the others around! And I'm pretty sure "Duchess" would have been tame compared to some of the names they had for me.
Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by mizB17 at Should Be Reading. If you'd like to read more teasers, or participate yourself, head on over to her blog. And these are the rules: Grab your current read; Let the book fall open to a random page. Share with us two (2) "teaser" 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! Please avoid spoilers!
I like that passage! Haven't heard of this book, but will go look it up now.ReplyDelete

Teaser Tuesdays: Alvor by Laura Bingham
Kill Word Verification
Now, now, I have always been very complacent and obedient. You were only bossy when we were playing school -- or Winky Dink. Yes, we have never been drunk together -- maybe we should! Who knows -- could be fun but we would probably just fall asleep.ReplyDelete
Good one :) Looks like an interesting read... Here's my teaser.ReplyDelete
Good one! You piqued my curiosity.ReplyDelete
Here is my Teaser Tuesday
Love that teaser! I have to agree on the bit about 'Duchess' being a tame nickname...there are lots worse things to be called...ReplyDelete
Here's my teaser.
I love this teaser! It reminds me of all the great times with my own cousins, though I can't say that we ever got drunk together. But I can just see all the dynamics at work again, reading this teaser. Good times, good times. :-)ReplyDelete
Meanwhile, my own teaser is at Bookishgal.
I love your teaser Joy! I don't think it stops at cousins though - I think many family members will talk about others regardless of how drunk or not drunk they get! :)ReplyDelete
Here's my Teaser! ~ Wendi
This sounds great! Thanks for coming by my blog so I could find you, Joy!ReplyDelete
That one made me smile. Gotta love extended family :)ReplyDelete
Great teaser. All my cousins live in other states so it's not somehting I have to worry about :-)ReplyDelete
Nice teaser! :-) Have a great Tuesday!ReplyDelete
Great teaser! It sounds funny!ReplyDelete
Yup. It's not just the cousins though that you have to watch out for. It's the siblings too!ReplyDelete
Here's my teaser
1) I’d like your permission to (re)print your article on ‘Dollhouse’ for our website
2) I was hoping we could use your ‘scribing’ talent for our website.
The Best Shows Youre Not Watching (dot) com [all one word]
‘Dollhouse’ is one of our featured shows. We’re hoping to round up a few people who can occasionally contribute perspective (via an article/blog) on the shows – maybe a recent episode, future direction, plot shortcomings etc.
What’s in it for you?
Primarily a larger audience back channeled to your blog. We don’t pay but the site has a lot of promise and we're pretty excited about getting it off the ground. Let me know what you think.
Oh, the stories my cousins could tell! Luckily, I can tell stories about them, too. Keeps us all quiet.ReplyDelete
My teaser is here - it's a scary one!
I haven't heard of the book, but the teaser is great. I don't think I've ever gotten drunk with my cousins, though. My friends, yes, family, no.ReplyDelete
This one is moving higher up my TBR pile by the minute!ReplyDelete
And you have special dispensation to get your review in even though the challenge is "officially" over. I'm the Duchess of the Battle of the Prizes Challenge and I say it is OK.
It sounds like it's a book you'll enjoy. Happy reading.ReplyDelete
