TBR/Teaser Tuesday July 20

Hiya Readers!

After a busy week at the cottage, I'm back! I've been reading a whole lot, too. To Be Read Tuesday was started by my friend Korianne.

Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris

Goodreads Description:

Cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse is on a streak of real bad luck. First, her co-worker gets murdered and no one seems to care. Then Sookie is attacked - and poisoned - late one night by some weird and apparently mythical beast. She only survives because the local vampires roll up and graciously suck the poison from her veins (like they didn't enjoy it). But in return the blood-suckers need a favor.

Which is why Sookie ends up in Dallas, using her telepathic skills to search for a missing vampire, on the condition that her undead friends don't do anything, well, vampiric while she's there. Easier said than done. All it takes is one delicious blonde and one small mistake for things to turn deadly...

I finished the first book in this series, and enjoyed it more than I had originally anticipated. I'm planning on reading the entire series. I should be buying this at the nearest used bookstore!

Teaser Time!

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!

What's your teaser?

Emma Out!


  1. Cute teaser! I hadn't heard of the book, but it sounds really fun. As for the Sookie Stackhouse series, I've enjoyed all of the books that I've read so far. Hope you do, too :)

  2. Juju: Thank you! I really liked the book.

    Lizzy: It's a great children's book. I liked the first book enough to decide to read the rest. Thanks for commenting.
