Every Tuesday, Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea posts the first paragraph of her current read. Anyone can join in. Go to Diane's website for the image and share the first paragraph of the current book you are reading.
I haven't started this book yet, but I'm ready to start it when I get home from teaching today-- Another Piece of My Heart by Jane Green. I love Jane Green. She might accidentally be living my life as a successful author. The inside cover says this book is about a woman who marries a man with two daughters and tries to make a family. Difficulties ensue.
The sheets are drenched. Again. Andi takes a long time to wake up, drifting in and out, aware she is hot, then freezing, then finally, when she moves into a state of consciousness, wet.
Opening an eye, she looks at the clock -- 4:02 a.m. It's always four in the morning, these nights when she awakes, when she cannot get back to sleep. she turns her head to see Ethan, his back to her, his body rising and falling in deep sleep.
Also this week is Teaser Tuesdays.
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!
Here's my teaser from page 124:
Here they are, in the waiting room, with Emily hating everyone and everything, wishing she were anywhere but here, Ethan feeling like his life is spinning out of control with no idea how to get it back, and Andi seeing her last chance at happiness being snatched away from her. Three people sitting feet apart, separated by a mile of hurt.
