Teaser Tuesday #2

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading and it asks us to...

1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3. Share a couple of “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 Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.
 
(click on the title)



I did a SNOOPY dance around my bedroom when my husband brough home this book last week and my fingers have been ITCHING to open it since then. As the next book on my TBR, I thought I'd use it as my teaser for this week.


"Bubbles. On a scale of one to ten, a bubble bath has to rank zero as far as things I'd expect an older-than-dirt-badass vampire to indulge in. The only thing that would surprise me more would be if you pulled out a rubber ducky." Pg 189

- Eternal Kiss Of Darkness / Jeaniene Frost

**I have a question if someone has an answer. I've been noticing that on comments people are able to put some kind of link back to the page where you click on it. I'm figuring its a code or something. Can anyone tell me what it is? Thanks :D

It's the simple things in life that make immortality tolerable. ;)

Sounds like this book is written with humor in mind?

Madeleine said...

My thoughts exactly, love it that the writer isn't taking herself too seriously!

I sent you an email with how to get the links up, looked messy here!

I haven't seen that cover for a Jeaniene Frost book before. I need to hurry up and read her.

My teaser this week is quite action packed. It's from Frostbitten by Kelly Armstrong.

The Golden Eagle said...

A vampire in a bubble bath? LOL.

For links, I write up a post with a link (by clicking on the "New Post" button on the Dashboard) and then just copy and paste the HTML code. The blogs automatically translate that into a link.

Is that helpful?

My teaser is from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams.

Lisa said...

omg the cover itself just drawn me to read it!

Here's mine

Oh, you've gotta love a bubble bath! This author's name intrigues me. (Mine is Snow, but it's really Frost, too; there's a story there).

Wow! A man who not only buys you books, but funny and sensual paranormal ones to boot. Sounds like he's as much a keeper as the book!

I tried to post the html code you use to hyperlink text, but Blogger blanked the code...hmmm, it's never done that before. So, I'll just link you over to a web page that has an easy tutorial:

Holy crap that was a good teaser! :)

Bev Hankins said...

Definitely don't expect vampires to take bubble baths. But I suppose as long as there's no garlic in the ingredients...:-)

Alayne said...

Nice teaser. Hope you're enjoying the book! My teaser is at The Crowded Leaf.

Bina said...

Haha, wouldn't have expected that either! :D Hope you're enjoying the book, sounds funny.

What a great image and the description of Badass vampire in the bubble bath made me laugh. Just back from holidays so I'm catching up today.

Making it my thing to log this book into my stash now. Great Teaser :)

Hee hee! I like the older than dirt part.

I have two teasers at my blog, Read My Mind.

Sun Singer said...

Bubble baths don't rank high with me, either. Oh no, I have something in common with a vampire.

Speaking of vampires, here's my teaser for this week: http://jockstewart.typepad.com/writers_notebook/2010/08/teaser-tuesday-evenings-on-dark-island-drips-with-blood-and-ambiance.html
