Teaser Tuesdays – The Painted Boy

Teaser Tuesday – The Painted Boy by Charles de Lint

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!

Page 172  “Maybe the uncles can help us.”

“I’m not drinking mescal tea to have visions,” she said.

Ramon shook his head and smiled. “I was thinking more of just talking to them.”

I am just a few pages into this YA book, but I can tell already this will be an interesting and exciting read.  The setting is the Arizona desert filled with magic, which isn’t something I have come across often, but always love it when I do.  Happy Tuesday!

About ocdreader

I love to read! I always have a book or four going, I have more books in my to-be-read pile than I can read in a year and yet I continue to haunt the bookstores. I have a problem, but I somehow soldier on. I enjoy talking books, so pass on your recommendations and thoughts - I would love to hear them.

  2. I like your teaser a lot. I enjoy reading books that take place in Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado (the 4 corners) so this sounds like one I’d love. Thanks for introducing me to it.
