First Chapter Tuesdays/Teaser Tuesdays - November 10th

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 currently reading...

First chapter...

The tips of the tall turquoise and green hats bobbed in the lightly falling snow as the elves weaved through crowds of painted dolls, toy soldiers, shepherds with their sheep, reindeer, poultry, clowns, sugarplums, gingerbread people and candy canes.

"I feel like an idiot," Jackie grumbled. "If Kyle dumps me because he sees me in this ridiculous getup, it'll be your head, Merry Wilkinson.


But I had more important things to worry about right then than how I looked. "Please, please don't tell me there's a problem," I begged George.

"Darn thing won't start," the old farmer replied.

"It has to start!"

What do you think? Would you keep reading?

  9. It sounds like the story is opening up in the middle of a chaotic mall? Not sure, but it sounds like a fun holiday story.
