Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, the weekly Meme that wants you to add books to your TBR, or just share what you are currently reading. It is very easy to play along:

• Grab your current read</http://thepurplebooker.com/wp-admin/themes.phpem>
• 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! Everyone loves Teaser Tuesday.

I couldn’t settle one just one teaser this week. I have a lot going on in my mind lately and these seemed to really resound as I settled in to try and pick a teaser. So I have decided to share both of them this week.

I should be finishing this one up today and it has been interesting to re-read this one. It’s a different book then others I have been reading as of late.

Tuesday again and isn’t it nice? I wish I was in Phoenix in the heavenly bed really haha, but one must keep on with regular life right? The BBC is showing this soon and I can’t wait so I decided to re-read the book.

Who is a space case and never went back and updated her teaser last week? LOL This girl. Little mini vacation was lovely though, once we got there. On the way both front tires of my car blew, on a 75mph zone two lane highway at 9pm on a holiday weekend. Did you know that some cars have locking lug nuts? I didn’t. I have roadside assistance but thanks to the locking lug nuts and lack of key they couldn’t help other then calling a tow truck. Cutting a long story short ended up renting a car to make the 2 hour drive to see David Cook & Idina Menzel. At least the hotel as always was a dream, highly reccomend you treat yourself to The Westin sometimes the beds alone….heavenly.

I digress….it is Teaser Tuesday not long tale Tuesday, lol.

Here is the teaser from my current read.

I just finished this one, but as my current book is out in my office and I admit I am being lazy and don’t want to go back out there, lol plus this is a good quote and book.

“Then again, she didn’t like small talk either, so she was glad he wasn’t commenting on the weather or the landscape. Life was too big and too short and too important to talk about the lack of rain or the latest gossip. She wanted to know how people felt about themselves and one another, whether they were happy or sad. She wanted to know what made them feel loved and what hurt them to the core. She wanted to know about their past, how they got where they were, and their relationships with their mothers and fathers and siblings. She wanted to know if she was the only mixed-up person in the world who felt completely and utterly alone.”

Welcome August! Wow are we really looking down heading into fall soon? 2017 seems to be flying by! I am still working on the re-read of Poldark.
