Teaser Tuesday, June 29

On Tuesdays, it's our habit round these parts to join in the Teaser Tuesday Tradition of Miz B at Should Be Reading. If you want to join in, just do the following:

* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page on your blog (or in the comments of the Should Be Reading blog)
* 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!

Hardball (V.I. Warshawski Novels)This week's Teaser is from Hardball a new(ish) V.I. Warshawski novel from Sara Paretsky I saw lying around the Hot Read table at the library last week.

Here's the teaser:

I tried to smile, but Rivers's fury made my mouth wobble. I drove slowly to my office, staying off the Ryan: I wasn't steady enough to deal with semis roaring around me.

We're still trying to find out what made Rivers furious. A typically good offering from Paretsky, and a savory 400 pages of reading to boot.

Previously on Teaser Tuesday: I was reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks which is a terrific book. I reviewed it here.

The language is strange to me. The Ryan? But intriguing!

Thanks for the reminder -- I always want to try these V.I.W. novels, but always forget. I started one on audio once, but didn't care for the reader, so gave up.

Sara Paretsky is always a reliably good read. This sounds like a good one!

Thanks for stopping by my website!
