Teaser Tuesday – 25 August 2009

language

Teaser Tuesdays asks you to:

Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

Please avoid spoilers!

The teaser:
The closer she got, the more outrageous her skirt became. Made of some clingy fabric in purple and lime green geometric print, the hem would rise above dress code regulations if she so much as sneezed.

— from page 19, The Wallflower (Jan Freed)

Why I picked this book: Read and enjoyed a previous book by this author.

I’ve reconstructed the comments as best as I could from the RSS feed. Some of my replies were hard to place, so I’ve left those off. I try to reply to each comment. Most replies are just a thanks for stopping by.

25 Aug – Natalie – Interesting teaser! What was she doing?? Guess i need to read the book, LOL!!
25 Aug – Me – She’s reporting in to her English class. The story is a cross between Hiding Out (with Jon Cryer) and Never Been Kissed (with Drew Barrymore). The main character is hiding from a murder by pretending to be high school student, and falls for her hunky English teacher. Besides the skirt: her hair’s dyed red-orange, she’s wearing a lime green sweater and carrying a yellow vinyl shoulder bag. 🙂

25 Aug – Susan B. Evans – Wonderful teaser this week! Looks like yet another book to add to my tbr list 🙂 You can find my teaser here.

25 Aug – Lizzy – Great teaser! Your description of her outfit made me want to read the book even more. I’ll definitely have to pick it up.
25 Aug – Me – Thanks! I probably should have pointed it out in the post — this is an older (1998) Harlequin SuperRomance.

25 Aug – Ruby – That is a site I see everyday living here in Korea. Women in Seoul went from being very conservative, to in the last ten years really being able to express themselves with clothing, sometimes for the worse.
26 Aug – Me – From one extreme to the other. Hopefully, they’ll reach a middle ground. 🙂

26 Aug – Carol – Great teaser. And I enjoyed the little bit of explanation in the comments.
26 Aug – Me – Thanks! I thought explaining it a bit would gain more interest in the book. 😀
