Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday - October 15th

Every Tuesday Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where we share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us?

If you'd like to play along on Teaser Tuesdays, just click the button above.

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!

This week I'm reading...

I drove across town following Chicken Boy, anticipation fluttering in my chest like the big yellow feathers flapping through the open window of his truck.

We headed west on the freeway, and people in oncoming cars laughed at the chicken driving ahead of me. I was glad the guy I rented from the costume shop brought pleasure to so many - until a half-dozen feathers flew off his wing and stuck to my windshield. A small boy in a passing car pointed and laughed like crazy, but all I could see was a wing full of yellow coating my vision. I turned on my windshield wipers, and feathers floated off to the right, making me notice the tops of nearby buildings and billboards. The colors of one made me catch my breath.

Would you continue reading?


  1. Hum.Not quite sure I'd keep reading, but sound like a fun, light read.

  2. I'd have to read a little further. I'm not sure where this on is headed! The cover is interesting!.

  3. Hmmm... I am not sure, but maybe I will. :)

  4. I'd stay with it if I was in the mood for a humorous read. Here's my Tuesday post: http://www.bookclublibrarian.com/2013/10/first-chapter-first-paragraph-35.html

  5. Oh, no, this is not going to end well for Chicken Boy! I want to know more, though.


  6. The description of the scenery got my attention and put a smile on my face.
    Here's my teaser

  7. This sounds like a fun mystery. I like the image of a guy in a chicken suit driving down the freeway. He shouldn't be hard to follow!
    My Teaser today is from KEEPSAKE.

  8. I bet someone got shot or something.... awesome teaser!

  9. This sounds like a fun, cozy mystery. Enjoy!

  10. Too many feathers! Too many feathers!

    Great teaser. Please check out my teaser.

  11. I would have to keep reading a bit more to decide.

  12. Sounds like a light, fun read. I don't care for the cover, but that has nothing to do with the story, that's just me :) You should keep reading.

  13. I'm not sure I'd keep going with Chicken Boy -- but maybe it would make more sense later.
