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?
