Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser TuesdaysTeaser 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!


This winter, we had two scandalous scenes in the same night, one where I was going to murder her and one where she was going to murder me. After that, she poured us some chardonnay and we collapsed onto the couch, decompressing.

From Tangled by Carolyn Mackler, page 155


This book is just ok. It’s told from the point of view of at least 3 characters, with each character having their own section of the book. Unlike some books of this type, they characters aren’t telling the same event from their own perspective. There is some overlap, but they aren’t synchronous. I don’t love it, but I’m interested enough to keep going.

Also on the nightstand, er, Kindle: The Paris Wife by Paula McClain, Bright’s Passage by Josh Ritter, and 22 Britannia Road by Amanda Hodgkinson. The latter two are under consideration for our nominee for the IMPAC International Dublin Literary Award. I’m so not into this committee this year, but I’m committed until May when we make our nomination.
