Teaser Tuesday-Oct. 27


Check out Teaser Tuesdays from Should Be Reading. TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

Grab your current read.

Let the book fall open to a random page.

Share with us two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.

You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

This week my teaser is from Made in the U.S.A. by Billie Letts:
  When she finished, she stood back from the mirror to test the high-fashion model pout she'd seen in magazines, along with her sexiest pose...making sure her toilet paper breasts were in proper position and of more or less equal size.
   Just outside the bathroom door, she found Fate waiting for her.

pg. 71

Your teaser made me laugh but I also feel a little sad for her. Love the bit about Fate waiting outside for her because Fate can be several different things.

Great teaser! I read a book several years ago by Billie Letts and really enjoyed it. I'm keeping this one in mind!

Thank you!

My first thought was that this was a romance novel but then, Fate could be anything. Good teaser.

OMG...what a fun teaser.
Just the "making sure her toilet paper breasts were in proper position and of more or less equal size." alone has me wanting to read the book!

The part regarding the Toiler Paper Breasts had me laughing. The teaser is very interesting and I'm going to add this up on my TBR list.

Thanks for sharing.♥

Great teaser!! I have this one tucked away, looking forward to reading it!

Kim said...

Was that a Zoolander pose? And did she take the toilet paper off the rolls or just stick the whole thing in there :-0 Hope she doesn't fall into a swimming pool!

Thanks for stopping by :)
