Teaser Tuesday ~ A Cousin's Challenge




Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought I would play for fun! 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!
Ella glared at him, sensing that he was making fun of her. How did Jake always manage to make her feel so stupid? “The only reason my nose is red is because it’s so cold out here!” She leaned down, grabbed a wad of snow, and formed it into a ball. Then she pulled her arm way back and chucked the snowball at Jake.
“Hey!” He brushed the snow off the sleeve of his jacket, bent down, and grabbed some snow of his own.

Ella knew what was coming, so she hurried for the bakeshop as fast as she could. She’d just stepped onto the porch, when—splat!—a chunk of icy snow hit the back of her neck. She was tempted to retaliate, but it was cold out here, and she had baking to do. She’d get even with Jake some other time.

Sounds cute and flirty, at least that's how I think of snowball fights. :)
