Teasers: 3 For You

There were lots of awful things about the father of your children leaving:  the money issues, the suppressed anger on behalf of your children, the way most of your coupled-up friends now treated you as if you were some kind of potential husband stealer.  But worse than that, worse than the endless, bloody exhausting financial and energy-sapping struggle, was that being a parent on your own when you were totally out of your depth was actually the loneliest place on earth.
From page 12 of One Plus One by Jojo Moyes. (Click link to see my review)
First, everyone looked at him, and then, once he said there might be a problem at the nuclear power plant, everyone looked at me.  Second, Ethan handed me my sneakers.
From page 18 of Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands by Chris Bohjalian.


She couldn't restrain her smile--grin, really.  The grin disappeared just as quickly.  She was betraying too much about her own morbid inclinations by responding with too much warmth, too much approval. 
From page 39 of Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson.

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.   

Happy Reading!


  1. Been wanting to try a Jojo novel.
    here’s mine: http://vvb32reads.blogspot.com/2014/07/teaser-tuesday-white-stag-by-linden-f.html

  2. I've enjoyed other books by Chris Bohjalian, so I'm sure this is a good one. The other two sound good too! I'll read your review of One Plus One.
    My Teaser Tuesday excerpt is from HEARTS IN RUIN.

  3. I know the first one all too well.
    Time to run... lol... sounds exciting!
    I'm intrigued by the last one too.

  4. Interesting excerpts here. I'll look into these titles. Good reading!

  5. So much truth in that first one, though it could be said of anything feeling alone and out of their depth. Mine: A Parfait Murder
