Teaser Tuesday #10

Wow, it’s been such a long time since I’ve done one of these, so it feels good to be back!

 

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books And A Beat.

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!


 

Makeovers in books and movies looked like so much fun.  Not so much in real life.

~ pg. 70, Bookishly Ever After by Isabel Bandeira

Years of comments like that made my answer automatic. “I can teach you how to knit and then you can make your own.”

WWW Wednesday #8

Dear Book Reader,

Here’s my WWW Wednesday!


 

WWW_Wednesdays4

WWW Wednesdays is hosted over at Should Be Reading!
To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?


 

1.  I’m currently reading “And We Stay” by Jenny Hubbard.  It’s only somewhat keeping my interest right now.

2. I recently finished “Alice In Zombieland” by Gena Showalter.  It was okay, but I’m going to go ahead and read the second book.  I tried to get into “Biggest Flirts” by Jennifer Echols, but 25 pages in and I couldn’t take anymore.  Rarely does a book become a DNF.

3.  I’m not sure what I’ll read next.  I feel like I’ve hit a brick wall with some of the books I’ve been reading lately.  I want something that holds my attention.

 

So, how would you answer these three questions?  Leave your blog link or responses in the comments!

Liz

Another case in point: a new girl shows up at the Amherst School for Girls after the holiday break, and rumor has it that this new girl got into major trouble at her old school.

When a girl loses something, she tries to accept the loss because it’s what is expected of her.

Dear Book Reader,

Hope your Tuesday went well!  It was a rainy day here and I spent a lot of time driving, mostly in massive amounts of traffic.  Here are my teasers for this week from a book I just recently finished and loved!

I didn’t open the box.  To open it would be a form of surrender, and I was not ready to surrender.

Our mistakes don’t have to be failures.
