Teaser Tuesday, April 20

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!

This is from Once was Lost by Sara Zarr which I actually finished reading last night, but since I haven't started anything else, I'm sticking with this. I'll probably post a review tomorrow. And it has to be three sentences.

I said okay, just to end this. And also because Dad didn't keep his word about calling Mom, or about talking about our plan, or about half a dozen other things I can think of off the top of my head, including how he was going to teach me to drive this summer. I'm figuring out, finally, that it's easier to do what he does: give your word and then make up an excuse later.

Whoof!

Previously on Teaser Tuesday
: I finished Teatime for the Traditionally Built which didn't live up to the fun of the title. I remembered why I stopped reading the Ladies' #1 Detective Agency mysteries. The people don't seem real to me--and even less real since I've been to Uganda. And as a mystery it was...let's just say weak. I think I'm done with these. Remind me if I'm ever tempted again.

Interesting teaser. Sounds like a worthwhile read.

Too bad about TftTB but glad to know I was right to drop the series. Too many good books out there to read the meh ones.

Wow, that's intense!

That's quite a teaser!

I gave up on No. 1 Ladies after the first book. It just wasn't a series for me.

I'm finding several blogs that are new to me by visiting Teaser Tuesday posts.

I have a teaser two-fer on Rose City Reader.
