It's Teaser Tuesday time again, hosted by Miz B. at Should Be Reading. Today I'm actually not pulling my teaser from a YA book. Shocking, I know! I've been trying to read some Women's Fiction/Chick Lit since that's the genre I'm working on right now (Sway).
My teaser today is from Lucy Sullivan Is Getting Married by Marian Keyes. I have a few minor issues with this book but overall it's been hilarious and page-turning. Thanks to Prerna for the recommendation!
Then he moved away from me and said more of those polite guest things like 'Can I do anything to help?' knowing that the answer would be an avalanche of 'Nos' and 'Not at alls' and slightly hysterical 'Everything's under controls!'. (page 317)
One of the things I like about this book is the fast dialogue so I'm going to share a teaser of that as well. (Note: I didn't cut out the dialogue tags, this is exactly how it's written. And it goes on, but I decided not to share it ALL.)
"Tell me about you getting married."
"Don't you want to talk about it?"
"That's what you always say about everything."
"That you don't want to talk about it."
"Well, I don't want to talk about it."
"Did Connie go berserk?"
"Totally. She accused me of being pregnant."
"Poor Connie, my eye!" (page 127)
What are you reading this week? And I could use some more Women's Fiction or Chick Lit recommendations. Anyone?
