Teaser Tuesdays (5)



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at 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!

My teaser this week:

"How do you not notice that your parents are bloodsucking vampires? I mean, we live in the same house. I know some teenagers are oblivious, but please."


Sucks To Be Me by Kimberly Pauley
p. 16

Mina Hamilton is an ordinary teenager girl, well as ordinary as you can be with vampires for parents. Now thanks to the Northwest Regional Vampire Council finding out about her, Mina must decide within one month if she wants to be a vampire. Blood drinking really isn't her thing but Nina has to go to classes with other teens where they learn about the vampire way of life. Meanwhile Mina is dealing with crushes on two very different boys and having to keep the whole vampire thing a secret from her best friend.

I actually started reading a different book and then yesterday I got this at the library and couldn't stop reading it. Very funny and embarrassing when a book causes you to laugh out loud in public!

One more tidbit from the book:

"A professional cheerleader vampire? Oh, man hold Uncle Mortie back. I've officially heard everything now." p. 30

What's your Tuesday Teaser this week?

  8. I saw this in the bookstore several times and I've been meaning to buy it, but I'm taking a hiatus on reading vampire books. Of course I'll return to them since I find them irresistible.
