Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesdays - January 6th

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!

I'll be starting this one soon ...

It was late dusk, early spring. David was on his fourth date in two weeks with Allison. With the top down, they drove along a coastal highway in his beat up Mustang convertible, while Allison applied the finishing touches of makeup in the rearview mirror. She smiled at her reflection, obviously pleased with what she saw. David shook his shaved head and readjusted his gaze to the stars above. "What a perfect night to lie on the beach and count the stars," he said, revealing the depth of his thoughts.

Allison was still in the mirror. "David," she blurted, "you said you were taking me dancing."

He never paid her any mind. He was too distracted. "Ever wonder if there's other life out there, Alli," he asked, "you know, maybe even making wishes on our sun?"

Allison finally removed herself from the mirror and shot him a look that asked, Are you serious? He never noticed. "Come to think of it, no," she said, cynically. "No, I've never wondered that." She looked down at her nails. "But I have wondered why this nail polish looked red in the store and now it doesn't." She sighed. "This putrid shade of purple doesn't even match my shoes."

What do you think? Would you continue?


  1. I would have to read a bit more before deciding. Enjoy your book and Have a nice week. kelley—the road goes ever ever on

  2. I don't think this would be for me, but I hope you enjoy it.

  3. Those two are off to a bad start, I think...LOL. I wonder where this path will lead them?

    Thanks for sharing...and here's mine: “CALL ME ZELDA”

  4. I'm not quite sure, You definitely chose a good spot as it leaves me curious to finish the book. I hope to see you around my blog


  5. I've seen this one on another blog. I love the title. Makes me want to be there.:)

  6. Both seem a bit selfish. I would have to read a bit more to see what happens.

  7. It has piqued my interest. I'll have to look into this one more. But I do like the title. I hope you enjoy it. By the way, I have to mention that your blog is so easy on my handicapped eyes and I really appreciate the ease in which I could navigate your site. :)

  8. I like the way the author immediately introduces conflict between the two characters. You can definitely see it coming! I'd keep reading to find out how they clash.
    My Tuesday post features LEARNIN’ THE ROPES.

  9. This sounds like it could be good! I'm wondering if the two will last long given how different their priorities are.

  10. I think I might continue although I'm not entirely sure how they are going to sort it out?

  11. This one might not be for me, but I hope you like it :)

  12. They don't sound like a good match. :D I'd probably keep reading. Lovely cover.

  13. Well, the cover is gorgeous, the title though simple, nice. The conflict is right out there....where will it go? Looking forward to your thoughts.

  14. I can see that relationship fizzling out fast... lol... I like that cover too. Sounds like it might be a good read.

  15. I've got my eye on this one. They appear to be mismatched. Can't see them working things out as they are so different. She seems too self-absorbed.
    Here's my TT -

  16. I like the cover, but the intro really didn't grab me, Hope you enjoy this one though.

  17. I'm not sure about the intro. I would have to read more!
