Teaser Tuesday two-fer, December 21

I'm still reading Portia de Rossi's memoir about her struggle with anorexia, Unbearable Lightness. Man, is it a tough little read! Here she is weighing herself on Christmas morning:

I was ready to receive my Christmas present, the gift of health and self-love that I'd given myself this year. With complete calmness and acceptance, I looked down at my feet.

89

"Merry Christmas, Portia"

Yikes!

Stork Raving Mad: A Meg Langslow Mystery (Meg Langslow Mysteries)So for a break from the bleakness and craziness that is the anorexic mind, I'm reading Stork Raving Mad by Donna Andrews. The heroine, Meg Langslow, does not weigh 89 pounds, what with being pregnant with twins. She's also wonderfully sane.

"If my water broke, it wouldn't contain ice cubes," I said, pointing to one sitting in the middle of the puddle. "Trust me, only ginger ale."

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading where you can find all the details.

Have a very merry Christmas!

My Teaser Tuesday

Both are really interesting teasers! Unbearable Lightness sounds really intense, and I think I have to put off reading it until the days get a bit longer. Stork Raving Mad sounds like a lot of fun, though.

The first one is too serious for my taste but the second one sounds like a fun read.. Thanks for the share.

I'm glad you are doing a bit of balancing -- I've found myself doing that lately as well.

Here's mine:
