Tuesday Teaser, September 9

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!

My teaser:

“The trail was right where I’d left it in Warner Springs, waiting like a king snake in the high grass.  A half-eaten mouse lay dead in the dirt, a look of astonishment on its face.”

–from page 314 of Dan White’s The Cactus Eaters.

Pro-tip, folks… don’t read this one.  It’s a memoir of a guy hiking the Pacific Crest Trail with his then-girlfriend, and you won’t find a more narcissistic, annoying individual as a narrator than this guy.  🙁

Leave a comment with a link to your own Teaser Tuesday post, or just leave the teaser in the comment if you don’t have a blog!
