Teaser Tuesday (9)


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along. Just do the following:
  1. Grab your current read.
  2. Open to a random page.
  3. Share two (2) "teaser sentences from somewhere on that page.
  4. 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!).
  5. Share the title & author, too, so that the other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.

    "Let's start something more basic. Isn't it strange that I know you'd risk your life to save mine... but I don't know what your favorite color is?" he says.
     A smile creeps onto my lips. "Green. What's yours?"
     "Orange," he says.
     "Orange? Like Effie's hair?" I say.
     "A bit more mured," he says. "More like... sunset."

     "You need to focus more on the chic part rather than the casual part. You don't want to look like a hopeless homemaker. You'd be violating Lipstick Law Two. Got it?"
     I nod my head in agreement, and she moves on. "Lipstick Law Three--Health. Never gain more than three pound in a year."

Good teasers there - you got me searching for this book on my netGalley account.

One question on netGalley, do you see any feedback from the publishers on your reviews?

My teaser is from the new urban fantasy thriller, Highborn by Yvonne Navarro at e-Volving Books
