Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesdays - November 18th

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...

One of these days, they were going to kill the stupid monkey. Glen Danning squinted against the Venezuelan sun, watching through the gap-toothed window panes as the half dozen soldiers in the compounds' courtyard took turns throwing their knives.

The monkey darted toward the cement block wall that separated the courtyard from the jungle, scrambling toward the top where the yellow, blue, and red Venezuelan flag danced in the breeze, but a rope mercilessly yanked the animal back toward his cage.

What do you think? Would you continue reading?
