TT--So Not Happening

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!

TEASERS COMIN' UP:

I slip into some faded jeans, a vintage Chanel tuxedo shirt, and black flats. I leave my contacts in their case and reach for my small wire-rimmed glasses, a total package that says, "Though I am semi-cute, I am hung over with misery."

From So Not Happening by Jenny B. Jones, page 67

This is the second teaser I've read today that had something about "vintage Chanel" in it! Is this the new Big Thing? Guess I've missed out yet again! Great teaser, though.

I like this teaser! The title of the book is pretty great too. It sums up how I felt this morning after a no-long-enough long weekend quite well ;)

Such great sentences! I must look into this book. There's a movie coming out called Coco avant (before) Chanel:

HA! What a concept. Cute, but miserable. Love the description of the outfit...it sounds just straight-up cool to me. This sounds like a fun and funny book. Great teaser!
Thanks for coming by my blog earlier!
