Teaser Tuesdays: Jane Austen Ruined My Life by Beth Pattillo


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

  6. 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.
