Teaser Tuesday July 26th 2011 … ‘Coffee At Little Angels’ by Nadine Rose Larter

 

My teaser lines this week, come from a book that is an author request to read/review, and which is next in line on my TBR list, to hopefully get started on sometime this week.

I make it a point not to include any blurb about the book in this post, as it creates too many spoilers, however, as the book is currently only being sold through the author’s web site, you will need to click here, to read a full synopsis, should you want to know more about it.

Clicking here, will let you know more about Nadine Rose Larter, a new voice in the genre of contemporary fiction, who hails from South Africa.

As I haven’t started to read the book yet, I have no idea what is happening on my ‘teaser page’ any more than you do, but I am certainly looking forward to finding out…

 

‘Coffee At Little Angels’ by Nadine Rose Larter

Teaser Lines from page 105


‘I didn’t even have to force it to work. The sharp burn of smoke traveled down my throat and the familiar sense of tingling fear crept into my stomach and tickled the inside of my thighs.’


‘A year after she died my dad left the two of us behind and moved to Cape Town. I knew it was because of Cindy that he’d had to leave, but the knowledge didn’t help the feeling of abandonment, especially not so soon after being abandoned by my sister.’

What Is ‘Teaser Tuesdays’?

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of ‘Should Be Reading’.

Anyone can take part, by just doing the following:

1. Grab your current read.

2. Open to a random page.

3. Share a couple of  “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.

4. Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences, that give away too much about the book.

5. Remember to share the title and author too.

6. Head on over to ‘should be reading’ and leave a link to your post, so that others can share it and you can share other people’s.

It would be great if you then decided to leave a comment, as we all like to receive them and are interested in your thoughts.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

    • Hi Julie,

      First chapter done and dusted and all is well so far.

      A great descriptive chapter, told in the first person, whose character has already been well defined … that is until he is killed!!

    • Hi Nadine,

      Pure coincidence, I just scrolled down and stopped at a page!! I never even thought about the mention of Cape Town, it’s not too big a spoiler though.

      I have completed the first chapter and am loving it so far, hope the snow disappears soon!!

    • Hi Jennifer,

      I think that I am going to enjoy this one, if the first chapter is a good indicator of things to come.

      I love a book with great descriptive writing, that takes time to fill in the details, so that there are fully developed characters, with interesting storylines.

      ‘Coffee At Little Angels’ has got this in spades, if my opening brush with the first character is anything to go by.

  • The cover is so dear, the title so inviting that my eye is instantly drawn to this book. Very interesting teaser.

    Do come by and say hello!
    🙂

    • Hello Pooch,

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving comment, it is good to ‘meet’ you.

      The cover is definitely growing on me, although with all the craft elements to your blog, I can see why it may have instant appeal to you.

      The title is also intriguing and I am hoping that all these elements will be pulled together, before I am too far into the story, so that I can make the connection between them all.

  • This is my first time here…..And I am not a Heaby-Duty Book Reader like Pat, at “Here There….etc….”, but I love the idea of tis Teasing Tuesdays…..Right now, I am reading a play—just started, so, it’s all “dialogue”…..
    Thanks so much for coming by and your comment in ‘The House Of Davids”….I agree with you—Money cannot buy taste…lol!

    • Hi,

      It’s great that you stopped by, you don’t need to be an avid reader to join in here, I just love to hear from anyone, no matter what they want to chat about.

      I tend to read quite a few books by new and upcoming authors, which is always great fun and so interesting to see how they each individually tackle the same medium.

      I tend to read and post a lot less often than many fellow bloggers, but it is always fun to spend a few minutes each day, just browsing other sites to see what people are talking about.

      I have to admit that my reading of plays and poetry, is sporadic at best, but I do like to dip in and out of them occasionally, it can actually be quite relaxing to read poetry.

      Stop by again soon

    • Hi Karen and Gerard,

      It’s definitely going to be quite an emotional read, I think, although it sounds as though there are going to be some recriminations going on despite the sadness, and relationships are certainly going to be put to the test along the way.

      The cover seems to be an overwhelming success, and Nadine gives full credit to the two ladies resposnible for its design and photography, right at the start of the book.

    • Hi Juju,

      I love writing to be descriptive and insightful, so I don’t think that I am going to be disappointed on that score.

      I just hope that the story shapes up into a page turner as well.
