Teaser Tuesday

Welcome to Tuesday. Even in the face of amazing giveaways - life goes on. Enries are open till the 16th, though, so after you read this, pop back to yesterday's post and enter if you haven't already. I have to say, you guys are so creative!! I'm loving your life titles. OK - onwards and upwords:

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!

I am almost finished a fantastic novel by Donna Miscolta entitled 'When the de la Cruz Family Danced'.

When the de la Cruz Family Danced"Winston looked at them, side by side, dressed in what might have been their Sunday best, had church been a Saturday Night Fever discotheque for aging Filipino men. ... He waited for the two older men to shuffle past him, first Johnny in blue and then lime-sherbet Rey, now with the hat on his head and the sack tucked under an arm." (pg 133)

It's hard to find teasers that do this book justice. Definitely a case of the whole being larger than the sum of its parts. Watch for the review. Have a great day, everyone!


  1. I love the description! This teaser made me LOL--literally!

    Thanks for commenting on my TT! And no, THE POISON DIARIES is NOT a vampire book! It's about plants and an apothecary's daughter! I'm so sick of vampires, lol!

  2. lol nice teaser! The cover art on this book is beautiful. : )
