First Chapter Tuesdays/Teaser Tuesdays - October 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!

This week I'm reading...

First Chapter...

There was a severed head on the blue patterned quilt folded at the bottom of the bed. I turned my head slowly and looked into the eyes of a killer. He stared unblinkingly at me. It would have been terrifying if the head hadn't been from a yellow catnip Fred the Funky Chicken and the eyes hadn't belonged to my little black-and-white cat, Hercules.

"What did you do?" I asked, frowning at him.


The basement door was open a crack, I had no idea why he liked to prowl around down there, but I suspected what he was doing was napping in the laundry basket.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. Just love the title and cover. Makes me want a cat!

  2. Ah, laundry baskets. what is it about those? :)

    The first line of the first chapter threw me for a sec, until I read the rest. LOL

  4. Cute cat. Reminds me of the "Cat Who . . ." books which I loved. Here's my TT:

  5. So creepy, yet fun. I love that title, too. Thanks for sharing and enjoy! Here's mine: “THE LAKE HOUSE”

  6. The title, the cover, the first paragraph are all very cute. Maybe a little too cute for me, but I do hope you enjoy it.

  7. I like the opening you shared quite a bit, Yvonne. My cats have fortunately not brought me any "gifts" like that, although I wouldn't put it past Gracie.

  8. Sounds like a cute read.

  9. Adorable cover and cute opening too. Had me fooled for a moment there.
    Mine this week is from Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris.

  10. LOL the beginning! What a reaction. Sounds like a fun read.

  11. I love it! Definitely would go on reading, but then I'm a sucker for mystery novels with cute kitties in them. Hope you enjoy it.
