Teaser Tuesday (01.26.10)

January 26, 2010

teasertuesdays31Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly event hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. It’s easy enough to play along, just follow the Teaser Tuesdays link for rules.

Today’s teaser is from Paper Towns by John Green.

I always got very nervous whenever I heard that Margo was about to show up, on account of how she was the most fantastically gorgeous creature that God had ever created. On the morning in question, she wore white shorts and a pink T-shirt that featured a green dragon breathing a fire of orange glitter. It is difficult to explain how awesome I found this T-shirt at the time. (p.4)

Okay, I know that’s more than two sentences, but I just love John Green’s writing, and you really need all three sentences to get the full effect.

What are you teasing us with today?

      I’m about half way through, and so very much loving it! I already know it will be one of my favourite books of 2010.

    This is EXACTLY why I love TT, I have never heard of this author, and I LOVE love LOVE your teaser. Especially where he says “It is difficult to explain how awesome I found this T-shirt at the time. (p.4)” That’s hilarious!

      The first time I read those sentences, I had to go back and reread them a couple times, just because they were so amazing.
