Teaser Tuesday: Nov. 9

Check out Teaser Tuesdays from Should Be Reading.  TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

Grab your current read.

Let the book fall open to a random page.

Share with us two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.

You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

This week my teaser is from How to be an American Housewife by Margaret Dilloway:
She had a mental list of who had wronged her: the kid up the street who stole a rose from her garden, the neighbor who put his bags of grass clippings on our side of the property line, me for any number of things.  I always chalked it up to her life spent trapped peering out onto the street from behind the living room curtains.

pg. 202
***Please note that this is from an Advanced Reading Copy so the final printing may change.

I've really been enjoying this book and found myself laying in bed the other night, wanting to get up and read some more!

I think everyone has neighbors like this. I am glad you are enjoying the book. I have two teasers this week. My adult book teaser is from Play of Passion by Nalini Singh and my young adult book teaser is from Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. Happy Reading!

Here is my teaser from Expiation by Greg Messel (page 1):

My sudden and unexpected return to Seattle was about to trigger a chain of events which completely change my life. Three months from this date my career, my life in San Francisco with my daughter and everything I had known before would be radically altered.

This is a fascinating teaser that further piques my interest in this book. The cover is so elegant and pretty but this teaser sounds almost sinister and a little gossipy and so really makes me curious as to what this book is about.

Of course, I realize I might be completely wromng soince Iam going by 2 lines! lol

Great one!
