First Chapter Tuesdays/Teaser Tuesdays - September 13th

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...


Matilda circulated carefully among the glamorous crowd, trying to keep her eyes off the glittering view of the Manhattan skyline and concentrate on keeping the tray steady. The last thing she needed was another catastrophic spill. She'd already had one warning from her boss and even though, technically, her last disaster hadn't been her fault she knew another accident would get her fired. Her brief was to be invisible, and she considered herself perfectly qualified for the job.


In fiction, characters could punch their bosses and get away with it.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. That sounds great. I'd keep reading.

  2. Cute cover. Some people can't help being a klutz. :-)

  3. Sounds interesting. I'd keep reading. Here's my teaser and first chapter: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1gR

  4. Now I'm definitely curious, and I love that cover, too. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “ALL THE UGLY & WONDERFUL THINGS”

  5. Wonder if this is a kind of Cinderella story? Yes, I'd keep going. :-)

  6. I just bought a book by Sarah Morgan. I've never read her before,but I would keep on reading.

  7. This sounds good. I don't think I've ever had a job when I wished I could punch my boss though. This week my teaser comes from The Queen of Blood by Sarah Beth Durst. Happy reading!

  8. Yes this sounds like a fun read - I think I'm anything but invisible though!

  9. sounds fun in itself, though I usually do not read that genre. To each his/hew own
