As I missed Tuesday's posting, I decided to post Tuesday's Teasers on Thursday this week. I love being the G-d of my own Blog!!
The rules again:
Teaser Tuesdays, hosted at Should Be Reading, asks you to:
Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page. Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
Two books again this week.
The first is from a FANTASTIC book called My Most Excellent Year by Steve Kluger. It's targeted at the YA audience, but as far as I can tell, every adult who has read it LOVES it (personal anecdotes and 5-star reviews from everyone-no exceptions last time I looked-on Amazon). Another example of a the YA moniker being unduly restrictive. Oh, and it's three sentences, but it wouldn't make sense otherwise.
We have a science teacher at Laurents named Mr. Landey, and since his father is deaf he knows American Sign Language (they call it ASL). So I've been learning it from him every day after sixth period. I've already nailed the whole alphabet, even though I still get D and F mixed up (which really isn't a problem as long as I stay away from "duck"). (page 154)
Oh, and I can't resist a few more lines--again--I love being able to be the G-d of my blog.
Augie is falling in love with Andy Wexler.
Andy Wexler is falling in love with Augie.
Augie doesn't know that Andy is gay.
Andy doesn't know that Augie is gay (Hello?)
I'm glad I'm a girl. (page 69)
Gosh, there are so many great lines. . .I could just keep going. But I will stop myself here.
I continue on my Stephanie Meyer jag--but this time I'm reading a book NOT in the Twilight saga: Ms. Meyer recently wrote an adult science-fiction-ish book called The Host, from which the following quote comes (and I cheated on the length again):
I couldn't stop shivering. Jeb could only promise me now. There was no guarantee that Jared would not decide my secret was more important than protecting Melanie's body. I knew that such a fate would make me wish Ian had succeeded last night. (page 162)
Happy reading, folks.
