Teaser Tuesday (July 21)

Teaser Tuesday button
Should Be Reading hosts the Teaser Tuesdays weekly event.

My modified rules are as follows:

Grab your current read. Pick two or three “teaser” sentences more or less at random from the book, anywhere on the page. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your teaser from… that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given! (Please avoid spoilers!) (Read the official Teaser Tuesday rules.)

My teaser:

Farm City by Novella Carpenter“When the pigs discovered, at the bottom of the trough, the lopsided cake we had dredged from the Yummy House Bakery, they let out peals of delight louder than the squealing brakes of a municipal bus. They bit each other’s ears in order to get a bigger share of the cake” (p. 196).

This is from Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer by Novella Carpenter.


  1. That teaser made me smile. I'll bet those pigs were so happy!
    Great teaser.

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. Cake at the bottom of the trough? Yum! I know just how those pigs must have felt! Nice teaser.

  4. What a vivid picture those lines create! Love the city bus brakes compared to pig squeals. So appropriate (and loud!).

  5. I'd never heard of this book, but it's on the list now. I love pigs. Thanks!
