Teaser Tuesdays: Jane Austen Ruined My Life by Beth Pattillo

3/9/10


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!

My Teaser:

"I stepped off the pavement into the street to avoid a gaggle of children about to engulf me.  This is what I had dreamed of, I thought to myself, the jumble of family life that signified a truly happy ending.  A dream that had never been further away than it was at that moment."
--p. 20 Jane Austen Ruined My Life by Beth Pattillo

What are you reading?  If you have a teaser, you can head on over to Miz B's blog or share it here by leaving a comment.

Someone sounds unhappy in this teaser - and it's too bad, because you make your family and your happiness (in some small way). Hope that there's something good down the road for this character! Nice choice.

If you'd like, you can check out my teaser here.
