“Isn't it odd how much fatter a book gets when you've read it several times?" Mo had said..."As if something were left between the pages every time you read it. Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells...and then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower...both strange and familiar.”

Teaser Tuesday! 02/26/13

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!

I actually am trying to read two books at one time and have teaser sentences from both books to share with you today. Here is the first one:

“Polly was so numb she hadn’t recognized Betsy’s voice and she had recoiled from the phone in shock, wondering if someone was making an obscene phone call.
                We had a meeting yesterday and you weren’t there. No phone call. No appearance. No nothing.” At Risk by Alice Hoffman.

“Getting out of a marriage is rough, though and not just for the legal/financial complications of the massive lifestyle upheaval. It’s the emotional recoil that kills you, the shock of stepping off the track of a conventional lifestyle and losing all the embracing comforts that keep so many people on that track forever.” Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.

LEAVE A COMMENT with the link to your Teaser Tuesday post, or your own "teaser" from current read. Thank you and Happy reading!


  1. At Risk is pretty good, hope you like it!


  2. I really enjoyed the book for Eat, Pray, Love, more than the film.

  3. Hey Carol!
