Teaser Tuesday 11

13 April 2010

This is how it works:

  • 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!

May Contain Traces of Magic by Tom Holt. All right, I cheated: this page isn’t a random pick. But it is all this good.

‘But it’s such a subjective thing, isn’t it?’ he said, smiling insidiously. ‘I mean, a mirror of desire, shows you what you really want. What did she actually see in it?’

The assistant manager grinned. ‘She saw herself looking into a mirror of desire that worked properly,’ he replied.

‘Oh.’ (p. 57)

  1. Sounds like a cute book – hope you’re enjoying it. A mirror of desire might be a dangerous thing to have around, though. Excellent teaser!
    Here’s mine.

    Aww now that’s good!! It’s deceptively simple and to the point and not trying to be clever or florid – lovely!

    I wish I could be as disciplined with my writing like this snippet!

    Thanks for sharing.

    Take care
