Teaser Tuesdays #1 (7/26/11)

"Teaser Tuesdays" 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 spoil it for others.)
5. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.

My Teasers

 "I mean, he was very smart and to call him the cutest guy I've ever seen would be an understatement, so maybe I was harboring the tiniest fantasy that we might become BFFs or even decide to see a movie together, but I didn't actually expect those things to happen. Then, when he'd basically asked me to run away and become mortal with him, needless to say I thought I was being punked."

-  from page 102, Jane Jones: Worst. Vampire. Ever. by Caissie St. Onge


For Jane Jones, being a vampire is nothing like you read about in books. In fact, it kind of sucks. She's not beautiful, she's not rich, and she doesn't "sparkle." She's just an average, slightly nerdy girl from an ordinary suburban family (who happens to be vampires.) Jane's from the wrong side of the tracks (not to mention stuck in the world's longest awkward phase), so she doesn't fit in with the cool vampire kids at school or with the humans kids. To top it all off, she's battling an overprotective mom, a clique of high school mean girls (the kind who really do have fangs), and the most embarrassing allergy in the history of the undead, she's blood intolerant. 

So no one's more surprised than Jane when for the first time in her life, things start to heat up (as much as they can for a walking corpse, anyway) with not one, but two boys. Eli's a geeky, but cute real-live boy in her history class, and Timothy is a beautiful, brooding bloodsucker, who might just hold the key to a possible "cure" for vampirism. Facing an eternity of high school pressure, fumbling first dates, or a mere lifetime together with Timothy, what's a 90-something year-old teen vampire to do?


  1. Well, this is entirely lame, but I'm listening to my current read in the car, so I'll give you what's on my kindle right now (my own story, which I'm going over for a last editing pass before sending it off):

    "Perhaps you could purchase a suitable garment with your earnings."

    "You want me to buy a _dress_ with my airship money?"

    ~Hunted: The Flash Gold Chronicles (out in a couple of weeks!)

    On a less self-promotional note, thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog!

  2. Hey, Lindsay!

    It's not lame at all. Flash Gold rocks! I'm so excited for the next one. And, I like the series name, Flash Gold Chronicles. So fitting.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
