Teaser Tuesday: My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon

Teaser Tuesday 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 a few "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn't give away too much. 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 teaser!
It would seem that I just can't stay away from the anthologies…here's another one! I read one earlier this summer called My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding compiled by the same editor. Liked it well enough so I put the next book, My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon, on my To Be Read pile. Looking for something fun to read, I picked it up this morning. Finished it just after the kids went to bed. 

I liked this one better than Wedding. The stories were easier to get into and there weren't any that stood out as being exceptionally bad. Of course, I was mainly interested in the Jim Butcher story -- which revealed some rather interesting background information about a character from the Dresden Files that I've always wondered about -- and some of the other authors were familiar, too. And despite this being a collection of stories about honeymoons, there wasn't too much page space wasted on detailed accounts of the characters making sexytimes.

Here's the Teaser:
"Erm…" Raphael was obviously too disconcerted by the fact that he was being hugged by an Elizabethan ghost to rally much conversational lines. "Do I know you?"
- pg. 260, "Cat Got Your Tongue?" by Katie MacAllister, My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon, edited by P.N. Elrod

Sexytimes? ;o)

"sexytimes" is my new favorite word. Totally stole it from Eric Snider's Snide Remarks.

I like that teaser! Sounds like a really interesting book, I'm not usually big on anthologies - I love me some novels!:D I am a fan of Jim Butcher though so I'm curious about the character mentioned.

Happy New year! I'm a new follower, by the way via RSS :)

LOL. I'd have trouble having a conversation if I was being hugged by a ghost, too. Great teaser!
