Teaser Tuesday

This is my first time participating in Teaser Tuesdays with MizB at Should be Reading. I've been lurking around and getting teased into some wonderful reads, so I thought I'd put one out there, too! It's a simple meme:
  1. Grab the book you're currently reading
  2. Let the book fall open to a random page,
  3. Share two (2) "teaser sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12,
  4. Share the title and author of the book so that people who are intrigued and teased will be able to add to their already overflowing TBR lists!


Do NOT post anything that could spoil the plot of the book!!!

So here's my teaser from The Way Home by George Pelecanos. It's on page 18 of my ARC.

It came to Amanda, when she was trying to "understand" Tom, at moments of tension and conflict such as these, that it must be odd for her husband to have to act like an adult and deal with these adult problems in the house in which he grew up. Walking behind him up the stairs, she imagined hime as a little boy, taking the steps two at a time, going up to his room to play, or to wrestle with his big brother Sean, now a Boeing executive in Chicago with whom he now had little communication.
I hope this has whet your appetite for The Way Home by George Pelecanos! While you're here, don't forget about my giveaway for 6 Michael Connolly books, compliments of Hachette! Contest ends Friday.

What a neat meme, I love this one and think it would be fun to do.

I love this teaser, and it's such a coincidence that I was actually thinking about this sort of issue, just this morning: how you deal with something, as an adult, in a situation where you were always a child before.

Very intriguing teaser.

And my own teaser is now up, at Bookishgal

hhmm... how true. After my parents passed away, I lived in the house for awhile and I found myself living as though I were still under the watchful eyes of my mother. I refused to move her chair and was insistent that nothing go on that she would not have approved.
Poor Tom.
Sounds like a fun meme and perfect for you!

I'm reading a first-time author's book right now, and although I'm at least 75 pages into it, I still couldn't tell you if I like it. I don't even remember the author's name, but the book is The God of Animals. Went straight to the best seller's list. Hmph.

Justine :o )

Back in the days when I had money to buy books, I used to pick one up, open it to a random page and read a few lines. I could almost always tell if I would enjoy the book from doing that. Fun meme!
