Tuesday Teasers is hosted by Should Be Reading. The rules are as follows:
Grab your current read and let the book fall open to a random page. Share two sentences somewhere between lines 7 and 12 and the title of the book that you’re getting the teaser from. Please avoid spoilers! Read the official Tuesday Teaser Rules.
This week my teaser is a bit longer than usual and is from a really fun YA book called Alex and the Ironic Gentleman by Adrienne Kress. From page 263:
"My crew are getting ready for the voyage, and as far as I know, there isn't much a ship's surgeon has to do before we set sail."If you haven't had the opportunity to check out this funny adventure series yet, you can find out all about the books (so far there are two in the series, Alex and the Ironic Gentleman and Timothy and the Dragon's Gate) on the author's website.
"Not true, not true. Why already this morning I've had to deal with two splinters and a stubbed toe."
"Which of my men would have the gall to stop work for something as small as that?"
"Your crew? I was talking about myself," replied Shakespeare.
