Teaser Tuesday with Blue Diablo

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of 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!
This one started slow, but it picked up steam quickly. Blue Diablo by Ann Aguirre is the first in the Corine Solomon series. A paranormal romance with a heroine who isn't your typical protagonist. She wears bright colors, flowing skirts, and wedge heels, and has scarred hands.
Here's your teaser:
The beauty of being short was that guys didn't usually notice me eating them with my eyes. Of course, most often, their disregard never changed unless they saw me handle. (page 46)

  2. Being short, I can say that I've obviously wasted many opportunities of eating guys with my eyes. I'll get on that. Here's Mine

  3. Ahh! I have this somewhere on my TBR mountain. Sorry to hear about the slow start but glad to hear it picks up speed later. My teasers this week are from Big Sky Mountain by Linda Lael Miller and Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne. Happy reading!

  8. How is is that I'm so dense as to not come here more often? Love the teaser and simply adore that picture of your son at the pool. Great summer!

  9. As a fellow short girl, I must say, we do get away with much more than people would expect! :) Great teaser!

  10. I'm fairly tall, so I never realized that short girls could get away with more! Corine sounds like an interesting character, and this series is one I'll add to my TBR list.
    My Teaser is from Toxic Torte.

  11. Great teaser! Being relatively short myself, it's interesting to see a character's physical features have an effect on their story.
