"Teaser Tuesdays"




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 week I am reading "One Good Dog" by Susan Wilson. It is a novel and not a real story about a dog, nevertheless, the dog in the story plays a leading role, I think.
The fur between my shoulder blades rose even before I could thoroughly identify the scent. In a completely instinctive response, I growled. Low and warning. Not my usual style. It wasn't another dog trespassing into the restricted territory defined by the length of my leash; it was them. The boys. The ones who kept me and my parents in that cellar, dragging us out only to compete, or breed, or train. I could feel the pulse of hostility stir my heart. pg. 189 pb.

  2. Good teaser. Sounds like it might turn out to be a sad story, though.

  8. I've read books from a cat's POV and I think they are so good and different. This sounds like it's going to be a good one, too.
