Miz B and Teaser Tuesdays asks you to:
Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page. Share with us two (2) sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
My teaser comes from The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
, my book club’s selection for our February meeting. It’s interesting how often these ‘teasers’ pertain to something happening in my own life- my oldest will go to sixth grade camp in the spring.
“When she told me I could go on my sixth-grade sleepaway at Bear Mountain and I bought a backpack with my own paper-route money and wrote Bobby Santos notes because he was promising to break into my cabin and kiss me in front of everyone I believed her, and when on the morning of the trip she announced that I wasn’t going and I said, But you promised, and she said, Muchacha del diablo, I promised you nothing, I didn’t throw my backpack at her or pull out my eyes, and when it was Laura Saenz who ended up kissing Bobby Santos, not me, I didn’t say anything, either. I just lay in my room with stupid Bear-Bear and sang under my breath, imagining where I would run away to when I grew up.”
Yes, that is only 2 sentences!!
What are you reading this week?
