Tuesday Teaser - Mercury In Retrograde

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3. Share two (2) "teaser"; sentences from somewhere on that page (BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The elevator came to a stop, the doors opened, and Penelope stepped out into her own personal Fallujah. The noise was almost deafening. It was lunchtime for the 150 reporters and editors and so, in addition to the constant ringing of phones, the screaming for "copy!" and the news blaring from five television sets hanging over the main news edit desk, there was an undercurrent of munching and the cackling of fast-food wrappers.

-Mercury In Retrograde by Paula Froelich, p 38


  1. OH boy, I really want to read this one. I love the cover too.

  2. I hope you enjoy it - I haven't gotten to far yet. I hope to finish by the end of the weekend.
