Teaser Tuesday: In the Wee Small Hours

Teaser Tuesday

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

In the Wee small hours

Telling lies seems to be a pretty vital part of parenting, when you come to think about it. Nice ones obviously, like tortoises going on holiday rather than snuffing it, or how you look like a fairy in your ballet outfit, rather than a piglet with bunches” (pg 132)

From In the Wee Small Hours by Gil McNeil

Great teaser! I hope you will check out mine for Stephanie Meyer's latest novel The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner! Also, if you check back on my blog this Friday I have huge news about the novels I had been submitting to agents/publishers!
