I’ve been reading a lot these past few weeks (even more than usual, and here’s why) so perhaps I should start seriously following some bookish memes in order to share some of them with you.
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 feel myself trying to be charming, and then I realize I’m obviously trying to be charming, and then I try to be even more charming to make up for the fake charm, and then I’ve basically turned into Liza Minnelli: I’m dancing in tights and sequins, begging you to love me. There’s a bowler and jazz hands and lots of teeth.”
I didn’t love the book overmuch, but when it comes to voices, this book can teach you a thing or two if you’re a writer. As a reader, I found it kept me hooked, but didn’t creep me out cos of its predictability. Or maybe I’m just too jaded a reader. Pick it up, if you like, and come to your own conclusions.
