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!
Here's my teaser!
"My mother's phone call, with its implicit message--you're a loser!--didn't set the tone for my thirty-seventh birthday; I was already in a funk as deep as the Pacific. Paul had the boys for the weekend, which I thought might be a birthday present unto itself--two days of peace and quiet, imagine all the stuff I could get done--but all I managed to do was polish off a whole quart of orange sherbet on Friday night (I don't even like orange sherbet but bought it because I figure it's less fattening than ice cream."
Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons by Lorna Landvik, pg. 241
