Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday - January 7th

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...

Sherry Harper blew into Trendy Tails like a late-summer tornado.

"It's just plain wrong, Izzy."

She'd march up the steps of 801 Maple Avenue like Joan of Arc charging the English, righteous fire in her eyes...and a baby sling strung across her chest. As she shifted her weight to better stare me down, her guinea pig, Gandhi, poked his quivering nose out of the sling to get a look around. Like all guinea pigs, he had a perpetually startled expression on his face, an effect heightened by the forward tilt of his auburn ears and the ring of pale blond fur around his button eyes.

Little guy would be adorable in one of my hand-knit sweaters. A-dorable.

"Animals aren't meant to wear clothes," Sherry continued, "It isn't natural."

Would you continue reading?
