Teaser Tuesday, Read-A-Thon Wrap-Up, My Puppy

Good Morning Everyone and Happy Tuesday!!!

Sorry you havent heard much from me. Between the earthquake last week and the hurricane this weekend, I was too terrified of life to do much of anything. Earthquake + Hurricane = Terrified Sherre. Hurricane=trees that fall=No electricity at the parents house=no wifi=no blog posts. Hurricane+No electricity=no sump pump working= flood in the basement. Luckily, I was at the boyfriends house in which had electricity, nonetheless, terror had me focused on the news and not on my book responsibilities. Shame! I am back to my normal self now and feeling much better. We have gotten back our electricity, (still no hot water though...yea it sucks) and are working on getting the basement back together. Nonetheless, I was able to finish Misfit By Jon Skovron  for the Read-A-Thon on Friday. It was a great book. The book Review will come soon. I was only able to begin Possession by Elana Johnson.

Now for Teaser Tuesday:

 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 doesnt give too much away! Tou dont 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!

 My teaser for this week is from Possession by Elena Johnson.

"Their shrieking alarms screamed, echoed, ratted me out to the whole world. I couldn't believe i'd tortured myself for no reason"

Intrigued? I know I am. Leave a comment with your link so that I can check out your Teaser Tuesdays.

Finally, I promised a picture of my little Simba. Well here he is:

I have Possession sitting right next to my bed. I think it is second on my TBR list but I might be bumping it up!

I hope you're doing alright! Glad to know you're getting your home back in order. Good luck with the clean up and everything...

Your teaser is immensely poetic...I love it! And can I steal your dog? (Frivolous cuteness is the remedy to intimidation...)

Jennifer said...

Interesting cover but it does remind me a bit of Matched. Great teaser.

Lan said...

That's really sucky Sherre. Sorry to hear you've been affected by not one but two natural disasters. It really puts things into perspective doesn't it? I'm glad to hear things are slowly getting back to normal. Hope things settle down.
