Teaser Tuesdays (Nov. 18)

Okay, so for those of you who are new to this meme, here's how it works:

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!

If you read last week's teaser and want to know more about The Silver Bowl, click here to read my review. It's one of my favorite books!

My current (re)read is Masterpiece by Elise Broach.

Synopsis (from Goodreads):

Marvin lives with his family under the kitchen sink in the Pompadays’ apartment. He is very much a beetle. James Pompaday lives with his family in New York City. He is very much an eleven-year-old boy.After James gets a pen-and-ink set for his birthday, Marvin surprises him by creating an elaborate miniature drawing. James gets all the credit for the picture and before these unlikely friends know it they are caught up in a staged art heist at the Metropolitan Museum of Art that could help recover a famous drawing by Albrecht Dürer. But James can’t go through with the plan without Marvin’s help. And that’s where things get really complicated (and interesting!). This fast-paced mystery will have young readers on the edge of their seats as they root for boy and beetle.

Here´s my quote, taken from page 32:
 And then, without planning to - without meaning to, without ever thinking for a moment of the consequences - Marvin found himself crawling out into the open, across the vast desktop, directly in front of James. He stopped at the edge of the picture and waited, unable to breathe.
Let me know what you think of the book, and check back on Saturday for my review!


  1. Sounds cute. I was first hooked by Marvin living under the kitchen sink and then the mention of Albrecht Dürer.
    My TT this week is from Duma Key by Stephen King. http://wp.me/pZnGI-fN

    1. It is, it's a very cute book! It's more of a middle grade book than the ones I usually review, but it's a re-read of an old favorite.

  2. Sounds like a fun story. I'm sensing an influence of Archy and Mehitabel here. Thanks for visiting!
