Tuesday Teasers: A Love Story and a Memoir


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should  Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought  I  would play for fun! Just do the following
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page (well, we cheat and choose specific ones)
  • 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can  add the book to their TBR  Lists  if they  like your teaser.   

Gerard's
Some of the people were so worked up that they tried to push and punch us. Others got up into our faces to yell, and some even spat at us.
From page 7 of Banished--Surviving My Years in the Westboro Baptist Church by Lauren Drain with Lisa Pulitzer. (a memoir)

Karen's:
"Because Elle picked me to watch out for her, and you are seriously considering keeping her on life support, and that's not what Elle wanted. It's just wrong to keep her in this state, as an incubator for something that isn't even a baby yet."
From page 48 of The Promise of Stardust by Priscille Sibley.



Happy Reading!

    1. Yes, they are controversial. Two very good contemporary books, one fiction and one non-fiction.

  8. Gerards' teaser sounds like a horrible moment happening.
    And Karens' reminds me how hard it can be for us to let go.

  9. Second teaser sounded horribly sad. First one is interesting. I've been spit on before, it sucks.
