First Chapter Tuesday/Teaser Tuesday - January 15th

Every Tuesday Vicki at I'd Rather Be At the Beach 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?

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, now being hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker. 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 reading this one this week. These are from the E-ARC.

First Chapter...

A rancid smell washed over me. I flicked an admonishing glare toward my companion. "Are you kidding me?"

Talking was a mistake. The smell penetrated me. I gagged. Removing a hand from the steering wheel of my new-to-me RV, I quickly opened the window. I was managing to drive the mammoth beast, but not with so much confidence I wanted to do it one-handed. The fresh air, with a slight twinge of exhaust, smelled better than my furry companion.


Christmas changed everything for Scrooge, as it had for my parents forty-five years ago when they found me on Christmas Eve - a sickly infant placed in a large stocking on the church steps.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. Hmmm....I'm not sure that 'a rancid smell' would be something that would pique my interest. Ha! Hope you enjoy this!

  2. Ha-ha...I was glad that the smell came from a furry companion.

    Enjoy! Here are my excerpts: “THE RED ADDRESS BOOK”

  3. Actually, its the Teaser that got to me. I'd like to find out what happened.

  4. Ha! Sound gross! But strangely fun!

    Here is my Tuesday post! Have a good day!

  5. I like the idea of a book set in an RV!

  6. The teaser definitely draws me. My Teaser is from Darynda Jones's Summoned to Thirteenth Grave.

  7. Sounds like it will be a funny read with that opening.

  8. Sounds like a fun read. See what I'm featuring at Girl Who Reads

  9. Sounds good, I'd keep reading.
