Time for a Little Tuesday Tease

  • 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. NO SPOILERS!
  • 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).
  • Leave a link to the blog post where you’ve shared your “Teaser" in the comments to the week's TUESDAY TEASER post at Should Be Reading.
  • If you don’t have a blog, share the teaser in a comment on that week’s “Teaser” post.

From beyond her eastern wall, Sivakami hears the young witch's slightly muffled voice: "Move away from my door with your dirty talk!"

The boys escape towards town, yelping with shared fear and collective bravado like skinny yellow pi-dogs.

  15. Thank you all for commenting. I am enjoying the book quite a bit. It's a bit long and slow going, but interesting just the same.

    A pi-dog is a stray dog, I believe. I hadn't heard the term before this book either.
