Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. You know the rules: grab your current read, open to a random page and share a two sentence teaser with us (no spoilers!). Be sure to tell us about the book, so we can add it to our TBR list!

Today, I’ve got 2 teasers for you! The first is from my February HOT READ, Working Out the Kinks, by Angela Sargenti. This was a fun, raunchy little read, and how can you resist a book that starts like this:

“Dear Diary,

Today I had my first threesome.”

You just know that’s going to be a fun read, right? (Warning: it is definitely for the Over-21 Crowd only!)

Next, I’m reading In Search of the Rose Notes┬áby Emily Arsenault. Early on, there is a scene where poor Nora has walked home from school in the pouring rain and her boots are ruined and she’s all twisted up in knots and this just reminded me so much of being a freshman and all that horror:

“The tears weren’t for the tights or the boots or the geometry homework I didn’t know how to do, but for the four high-school years ahead of me. It still surprises me to think of how hard I cried that day, when I was too young and unimaginative to conceive of how miserable those years would actually turn out to be.”

Yeah. That was my freshman year, alright.

    Yes, being a freshman can be a very scary experience. I remember my first day of high school and how nervous I was. Great teaser!

    I’m definitely going to have to check out the Working out the Kinks book. :)

    I agree about being a Freshman. Yikes. I”m glad those years are over.

    High school – definitely not an experience I’d care to repeat…lol

    Thanks for sharing.

    I like the first excerpt…that’s a book I’d want to read.

    Not sure about that threesome teaser, but I can definitely identify with the second one. I guess that first year of high school has always been pretty scary.

  7. Comment by Sandra Nachlinger:

    Obviously I love books that involve a diary, since my own book starts with an old diary. No threesomes, however!
    Here’s my Teaser for today: Sandy’s Teaser

    Both of those are great teaser. I’m not sure that I want to read the first one, but it’s definitely attention-grabbing.
