Teaser Tuesday - Gods Behaving Badly

Teaser Tuesdays 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 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!

My teaser is from the funny story of Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips. It literally made me laugh out loud (lol).

Pg. 115

I could kill you all, thought Apollo, with a click of my fingers. Or at least I could have. Once. Before Artemis had her little bit of fun.

Summary of Gods Behaving Badly

Being immortal isn't all it's cracked up to be. Life's hard for a Greek god in the 21st century: nobody believes in you any more, even your own family doesn't respect you, and you're stuck in a rundown house in north London with too many siblings and not enough hot water. But for Artemis (goddess of hunting, professional dog walker), Aphrodite (goddess of beauty, telephone sex operator) and Apollo (god of the sun, TV psychic) there's no way out...Until a meek cleaner and her would-be boyfriend come into their lives, and turn the world literally upside down.

  4. If you need a laugh you must put this on your TBR list. The first chapter had me laughing out loud, I was crying from laughing so much.

    I had to put the summary because the teaser just wasn't enough.

  10. Thanks for visiting. Nice teaser. I think Alice in Wonderland is getting a bit of a revival because Tim Burton is redoing the movie with Johnny Depp and it's being released sometime soon (I think March 2010?) so everyone wants to have the book/prior movies fresh in mind before the new one comes out.
