Teaser Tuesday - Ordinary Me by June Sproat







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!
My teaser book is Ordinary Me by June Sproat:

I heard a throat clear behind me and looked in the rear-view mirror, directly into the brown eyes I’d been staring at right before the accident.

Steve.

He was in the car, which means, he totally saw everything.

(OK, that's really 3 sentences, but stopping at 2 just didn't make sense!)

Want to play along? Leave MizB a comment with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your 2 ‘teasers’ in a comment on her blog (if you don’t have a blog of your own). Fun!

Great teaser from a great book! What a fun game! (I just finished the book I was reading last night, so I don't have one to share...sorry...)

Ordinary Me is an AWESOME book!! Thanks for the meme. Here's mine from Robin Hobb's Assasin's Apprentice (you said the nearest book and Loretta Chase is a bit further away, lol):

"I was to greet people when I first encountered them each day, or if I walked into a room and found it occupied; melting silently away was not polite. I should call folk by their names, and if they were older than me or of higher political station, as, he reminded me, almost anyone I met on this journey would be, I should address them by title as well."

Thanks for stopping by Debra and Pamela--glad you both like Ordinary Me! And Assasin's Apprentice certainly sounds intriguing--I'll have to check it out.

I know its not Tuesday but oh well. I have a good book Its called Bluebeard by Kurt Vonnegut

"Think of this: my homecoming as a surprise party they had been looking forward to all day long. Now it was all they could do, despite how generous I had always been with them, not to laugh out loud at my maximum agony! What a World!"
So far its a great book.

Wow, Vonnegut, huh? Pretty impressive! I always like pulling out old favorites during the summer--next time I have a free day I'm sure I'll curl up in the sun with my falling-apart copy of Persuasion!
