Teaser Tuesday #17

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading and here's how you play..

Grab your current read and open to a random page. 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 and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teaser.



"I can't get it out," she said.
"Just pull at it."
"It hurts. It's throbbing."
"Pull harder."
"I can't! It's truly stuck. I need something to make it slippery. Do you have some sort of lubricant nearby?"
"No."
"Not anything?"
"Much as it may surprise you, we've never needed lubricant in the library before now."

 
 
   
I did the teaser a little different this week. This isn't a book I'm currently reading, although it's sitting on my night dresser waiting for me to read it next. It's actually one of the books that I'm giving away in the MIDWINTER'S EVE GIVEAWAY HOP that starts today and ends tomorrow night. So here's the deal, I know you have to be even just the TEENSIEST bit curious - are they REALLY talking about what you think they are or is it something more ... INNOCENT? Take a few minutes to enter my giveaway and you may be the lucky one who gets to read and find out. What are you waiting for?

At first my mind went right into the gutter, but then I thought... hmmm.... maybe she got a ring stuck on her finger and needs lube. But why in a library?! Great teaser. Has me asking all kinds of questions.

Here is my teaser from Lipstick in Afghanistan by Roberta Gately (Page 1):

"Do you hear it?" The voice was almost a whisper.

Elsa held her breath, and then she heard it too, a faint rustling of footsteps over twigs and leaves. Out of the corner of her eye, she glimpsed several shadowy figures darting through the trees, and when she turned, she saw a glint of sunlight reflecting off the barrel of an assault rifle.

There was no denying it—the Taliban had found them.

Oh, Jesus! she thought. We'll never escape.

Elsa knew the Taliban's ruthless hatred; the death and destruction they wrought was undeniable.

Seized by a sickening wave of fear, she wanted to cry or throw up, but there was no time. She tried to catch Parween's eye, but her friend was looking back, intent on finding the source of the sound.

"Run!" someone shouted, and suddenly, the chase was on.
