Here we are in "lull week" - the week between Christmas and New Year's where we don't have a whole lot going on and everybody's home from work and school. We went bowling today. I was awesome. Not.
I rather enjoy "lull week" because it's like a pseudo-vacation. We don't typically go anywhere, but the schedule is pretty relaxed. We're doing the board games, the bowling, the movies, the books...
I like to read, but rarely find much time for it, and so it takes me forEVER to get through most books. Many, I don't even finish.
I'm reading one right now, and I found this "Teaser Tuesday" which is a weekly bookish meme, so I decided to play along - it being lull week and all.
Just do the following:
1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a
3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that
4. 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.
Okay, so here goes:
"I heard", Ellie said, touching her shoulder from behind. "I'm sorry".
Katie tried to keep her eyes wide, so wide that the tears in them couldn't quite trickle over the edges. but then she turned and threw herself into Ellie's arms. "It's not supposed to be like this", she cried. "It wasn't supposed to happen this way".
All right, that was technically more than (2) sentences, so shoot me!
What types of books do you like to read? What are you reading now? Read anything particularly good lately?
