Teaser Tuesday (4)


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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

What do you get when you cross an egomaniacal fairy godmother, an arrogant genie, and  a couple of wandering plagiarists whose idea of cultural preservation I stealing the stories of unsuspecting villagers and passing them off as their own?  If I were tossing back a few shots of Goose with the guys at Ever Afters, I might chuckle at such an intriguing setup for what has all the promise of a hilarious punch line- except the punch line of this little beauty isn’t funny at all.  ‘Cause what you get, my friend, is a pissing contest of epic proportions.

Red by Kate Serine Kindle location 25
Seriously, when the first paragraph of a book is what you just read how can you fight curling up in your favorite reading place and continuing?  I just had to know how epic the contest was.  What do you think?  Don't forget to link me your Teasers as well.

    1. It is good- although I am thinking more on the older end of YA novels.
