Teaser Tuesday with Flora Segunda

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!
I'm in love with this book already. Flora Segunda by Ysabeau S. Wilce is a middle grade fantasy. It's quirkier than Harry Potter. I know lots of Harry Potter fans out there. You'll love this book too.
Here's your teaser:
I was about to give up and go to the Tuckshop for a mocha, and then let Udo arrive and wait for me, when at last there was a hollering yahoo, and here he came, resplendent in a black-and-white-striped frock coat over an emerald green kilt. Perched on his head was an emerald green hat the size of a wheel of cheese, well festooned, with black and white ribbons and cruelly surmounted by an iridescent green-and-gold bird wing. (page 87)

  1. What a description! I think the writing style would defeat me though. My teasers are from Because It Is My Blood by Gabrielle Zevin and Line of Fire by Stephen White. Happy reading!

  3. Fantastic Teaser!! Too funny!

    I’m cheating a little bit this week – My teaser isn’t from my current read, but from a Fantasy novel I read a few years ago:

  9. Is it just me, or does this sound very British-y? Middle grade is such fun.
