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!
This week, I am finishing up Roastbeef’s Promise, a story about a young man who is fulfilling his father’s dying wish: to have his son sprinkle his ashes in each of 48 contiguous US states. Early on in the book, Roastbeef talks about his father’s funeral plans:
“He had decided on everything: white gardenia flowers, a silver-plated urn that looked like a tea kettle without the spout, a mix of religious and patriotic music, and a buffet table set up with Krispy Kreme glazed donuts. He even left a handwritten note for the mortician saying, ‘Anyone caught crying at the funeral should be asked to leave.'”
Now that sounds like some pre-planning I could get behind. What’s teasing YOU this week?
