teaser tuesday (19)

Tuesday, November 10, 2009 |
It's Teaser Tuesday, a bookish blog meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:

Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page. Post two (or more) sentences from that page, along with the title and author. Don’t give anything vital away!

“Down the hall and into her own room she dashed, and she dug around in her tall, creaky wardrobe until she found it—a fragment of lens left over from the early days, the bad old days…the days when the evacuation order was fresh and vague. No one was sure what they were running from, or why; but everyone had figured out that you could see it, if you had a mask or a set of goggles with a bit of polarized glass.”

-p. 50 of Cherie Priest’s Boneshaker

I have to finish Boneshaker by Thursday - I'm going to the book launch!

My teaser is from "Cancel Christmas" by Rocco Leonard Martino. I'm doing the Christmas Reading Challenge and this is Book No. 1 for me:

[[In his seething anger, a plan was formulating in his mind. He would abolish Christmas as a national holiday.]]

The villain's point -- he has just discovered that last year's holidays cost him $100 million -- too much, he thinks, for a religious holiday. And where there's one, others will follow! So he comes up with a plan...

This is a fun read(though with some serious overtones on the role of the separation of Church and State, and the role of politicians, etc. There's even some romance, nicely done.

The Teaser is more interesting than just the title alone. Totally not what I was expecting - which was yet another vampire book.
