Teaser Tuesday: The Bad Girl

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

Grab your current read and let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two “teaser” sentences from that 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!

So here is my teaser - today it is from "The Bad Girl" by Mario Vargas Llosa:

"Are you still in love with me?" Was her opening remark, to break the ice.
"The worst thing is that I think I am," I admitted, feeling my cheeks flush. "And if I weren't I would fall in love with you all over again today. You've turned into a very beautiful woman, and an extremely elegant one. I see you, and don't believe what I see, bad girl."

Which books did you choose teasers from?


  1. I've always meant to read Vargas Llosa but have never gotten around to it and then he's gone and won the Nobel and my guilt at not having read him has increased. Perhaps 2011 will be the year.

  2. This is my first Vargas Llosa but it is amazing, really magical! This one is a great place to start.

  3. I loved this book when I read it a few weeks ago ,all the best stu

  4. That's a great teaser!
    And thanks so much for visiting my blog! I've now added your link onto my Google Reader. :)

  5. He's been on my radar since winning the Noble Prize. I just can't seem to find any of his books at the bookstore! Good teaser and what a great cover this one has.
