Teaser Tuesday

Over on the shouldbereading blog, I've joined her campaign to introduce you to two random lines in a book that I'm reading or have recently read. The idea is to tempt you to read it too, or you may comment with two lines of your current read. Just don't spoil the plot.

Here's mine: (one of three books I'm currently reading/not reading--depending on the day...this one rides around in the car with me)

Shopaholic Takes Manhattan by Sophie Kinsella

about her mad collection of shoes....(page 19)

And once I lined them all up on my bed and took a photograph of them. Which might seem a bit weird--but I thought, I've got loads of photos of people I don't really like, so why not take one of something I really love?

I've never read any of the Shopaholic books, but I'd like too. Good one!

I'm reading it because it's written in first person/present as is my WIP, so I'm studying its style as well as reading it for fun.

Love that line!

How about one from CCS? My favorite line(s):

“Felt more like x-ray vision. Admit it. You’re undressing me with your eyes. What do you think, boxers or briefs?”
Jac turned to face him and crossed her arms over her chest. “I’d bet money they have Sponge Bob on them.”

You know, I was tempted to post a few lines from our book, but I had too many favorites! I guess that's a great sign.

The Shopaholic series is just laugh out loud funny. Just these two sentences had me really chuckling. Good ones!
here is mine

It seemed hopeless to Danny, the way they clawed and chewed and squeezed each other's bones. And yet he kept returning for more.
