Teaser Tuesday (Not How It Sounds)

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

Today is Teaser Tuesday, a weekly book meme from Should Be Reading!

  • 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've been meaning to do this, but I kept forgetting. Hooray for my Google Reader reminding me!

"No," she said as she put her head against the side window and looked out at the road. "Have you ever believed in someone completely, then found out that that person wasn't at all what you thought?" (pg. 156) Lavender Morning by Jude Deveraux

This is kind of a random read, I was literally walking out of the library when I stopped at the "New" section and grabbed this book. To be honest as to why, it's because the colour caught my eye and I thought the house in the picture was absolutely beautiful. So I read the jacket, and because I am a sucker for a light read with slight mystery dealing with small towns (a mentality I will never understand), I had to pick it up. So far, so good--a bit simple and the names are a tad confusing, but it's still interesting! I very much want to know what the hell happens.

Though I have to say, my one complaint (and it's a bit obscure) is that Ms. Deveraux does not have the best timing within a scene where eating takes place. What I mean is that a character will finish a massive lunch meal in the span of 5 sentences of dialogue - it's just not realistic! There is one section that has the main character finish two bowls of soup, a tuna sandwich, and a sizable piece of a massive double-layer chocolate cake within 2 pages and 25ish lines of dialogue. Either these characters eat in acceleration, or they are completely silent while eating. Whatever it is, I'm finding it increasingly distracting.

About Me

My photo
I'm fairly obsessed with penguins, Peanuts (the comic), and the TV show Friends. Parentheses may or may not be (over)used in this blog, and books will pretty much be the only thing I ever talk about because they are my One True Love.
