Teaser Tuesday 0223:45
I have decided to participate in a weekly bookish meme, called Teaser Tuesday. It is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. I learned about it from my friend at Unraveling Words. Here are the rules:
• 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 have modified them slightly for my Teasers. It will not be two sentences from a random page but two sentences from the pages I have read so far that have struck me as most interesting, original or that I just happen to like a lot.
So, here is my Teaser this week. It is actually from a book I read last week, but I liked it so much that I could not miss the chance to share a tiny excerpt from it with you:
"Any previous balloons of hope I had been floating in my pretend-alternate-reality-carnival-of-dreams were immediately deflated if not brutally burst. This guy who I's been fantasizing about for going on two months and with whom I thought I was kinda-sorta-maybe dating was not just out of my physical-attractiveness league, he was out of all my leagues."
