Teaser Tuesday!

This is my first meme thingy. I've kinda done a couple IMMs, but I called them Bookstore Scores and didn't do the linky thing on Story Siren or give credit where credit was due, so yeah, I'll call this my first meme.
Y'all know the drill:
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 teasers are from Witches Abroad by Terry Pratchett, a book of Disc World featuring my favorite witches, Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, and Magrat Garlick.

Asking someone to repeat a phrase you'd not only heard very clearly but were also exceedingly angry about was around Defcon II in the lexicon of squabble.
Page 162.

"I've got nothing against dead people," said Granny. "Some of my best friends are dead. It just don't seem right, though, dead people walking about."
"What d'you think, Mr. Zombie?"
"It's a great life, Mrs. Ogg," said the zombie.
Page 215.
My eyes about bugged out my head when I saw the word zombie in this book! I was just saying to myself, "You know, 21," I says, "The only way this book could be improved upon was if someone were to put a zombie in it." And then I turned the page, and there it was! I was so happy!

Happy reading!

Dame Orchid said...

That book sounds hilarious.

Oh, you'd love it, Orchid! Granny is the best! It's reminiscent of Dianna Wynne Jones.

I guess you're right, Tasch, if loving zombies so much is wrong, then I don't wanna be right! Have you read the Den of Shadows series by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes? They're my favorites.

OMG I thought of Diana Wynne Jones when I read what Granny said. She reminded me of Sophie when SHE was in her granny phase, haha.

Thank you for the awesome awards (you were right, I haven't seen the Human award. I've seen the other one you gave me but I never received it until now! xD) I'll pick these up soon; I'm way behind on my memes and awards...*sigh*

I don't like green tea. x3 I LOVE SUGAR. And dark tea. Call me old-fashioned, lol. Carlton! Holy crap, lol. Fresh Prince was a great show. :)
