Welcome to another edition of Teaser Tuesday! You know how this works: grab your current read, pick two teaser sentences to share with us (no spoilers, please) and don’t forget to tell us about the book. Then, head over to Should be Reading to check out the other teasers!
This week, I’m reading Naked City: Tales of Urban Fantasy, edited by Ellen Datlow. These are fantastic stories! There are some great authors represented in this collection and I am really enjoying. My Teaser comes from a story by Christopher Fowler called “Oblivion by Calvin Klein.” Helen, our heroine, is a bit of a shopaholic:
“After shopping, she always wanted a cigarette and a soapy wash, because the entire process was about sex. Buying an inappropriate dress was the equivalent to a thoughtless one-night stand, whereas designed shoes constituted a long-term commitment filled with recrimination and at least one decent orgasm.”
I think Helen might be shopping in better stores than I can afford.
What’s teasing YOU this week?
