Teaser Tuesdays (3)

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!

Here's mine:

"It's very hot to be sitting inside a closed skimmer," Landon said.
"So crack a window and give him a bowl of water," Holloway said. "If he puts a foot on my property, I'm parting his hair with a shotgun."

p 153, Fuzzy Nation, by John Scalzi

Leave a post with a link to your TT, or, if you don't have a blog, post your teaser right in the comments!


  1. I wouldn't trespass there!

    Here's mine:

  2. They apparently mean business.
    My TT:

  3. Aww, they sound mean! I wouldn't be going there.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. :D

  4. Oh, interesting teaser! Great choice! I hope it's good. :)

    My teaser can be found here! It's from a book I just finished today and absolutely loved!

  5. I read the Old Man's War series by Scalzi and loved them. I've never heard of this one, but I'm going to have to read it!
