Teaser Tuesday: Boys, Bears and A Serious Pair of Hiking Boots by Abby McDonald

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! 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 teasers!

Boys, Bears and a Serious Pair of Hiking Boots by Abby McDonald.

Boys, Bears and A Serious
Pair of Hiking Boots – Candlewick Press

“What did I even do?”
“Besides have a major freak-out last night?”
— Chapter 9

Fiona rolls her eyes and tries to push past me, but I stand firm in the middle of the dark road. Jeremiah B. Coombes would probably tell me to flee the wild beast and retreat to safety, but I’m sick of tolerating all her crap. No more.
— Chapter 20

I am so not a winter person. Sure, some snow for Christmas, but this sticky, wet, and cold weather with crystallising fog and literally days of no sunshine at all? Not my thing. So what’s better than some light reading that most would dub summer entertainment? ... she said while still stuck in the trilogy from last week. But I read this recently and thought I’d keep these teasers for some dreary weather. It has some interesting aspects and a good range of not uninteresting guys, but you have to accept it as a light and fun read. But who says that everything you read has to be of profound critically appraised literary value?

Do you have any winter-escape-recommendations? Share them with your teaser in the comments.

I never heard of this book before but a quick glance at the synopsis on Goodreads learned that this could be a fun summery read indeed :-)

Here's my TT

This sounds like the perfect book to escape the weather you've been having! I'm reading a book in which it's very cold--and it seems to be working. Winter has finally arrived where I live. As if the book brought the weather with it. Just not the snow. :-)
