Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesdays - January 20th
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'm going to start reading this soon...
First Chapter First Paragraph:
"Can you really make a biscuit out of sweet potatoes, Zoe?" Delia asked.
"I'm not sure," I replied. "I guess we'll find out."
It was four A.M. on the downtown streets of Charlotte, North Carolina. It was dark and quiet in the city. A line of food trucks with names like Stick It Here, Meggie's Mushrooms, and my food truck - the Biscuit Bowl - were in place as though they were waiting for the lunch crowd.
Only extra early.
It was the first morning of the Sweet Magnolia Food Truck Race. Ten food trucks from across the Southeast United States were competing for a fifty-thousand-dollar grand prize. Even if I didn't win the cash, the race was being shown on national food networks, which would be good publicity for the Biscuit Bowl.
How great was that?
Miguel knocked on the back door. There was no response. He pounded and I called Reggie's name. Still no response.
"Is there a problem, sir?" a burly Charlotte police officer asked. "Ma'am?"
So, what do you think? Would you continue reading?
