Teaster Tuesdays (11)

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 about time, Pounce said. I almost asked you if you wanted us to bury you with him.
Rosto looked down. "I know you're a cat, but you don't have to be cruel," he said.

Mastiff, Beka Cooper book 3 by Tamora Pierce, p. 6 

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 love Tamora Pierce books but haven't read any since my kids got tired of them (I won't say they outgrew them, but the boys weren't thrilled with a female protagonist anymore). Here's Mine

  2. I haven't read any of the Beka Cooper books, but I've heard that they're really good! :) But I think any book with a talking cat catches my interest; I definitely need to check the first book out.

    Here's my teaser. :)
