teaser tuesdays

Teaser Tuesday asks you to : Grab your current read, Open to a random page, Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. I’m reading The Laws of Harmony by Judith Ryan Hendricks.  I won the book at a giveaway from the book blog Reading with Ti as well as a pretty shawl like the one on the book cover, thanks again Ti! It’s about a woman whose life is turned upside down when her boyfriend dies in a mysterious accident. She takes off in an attempt to reinvent herself and begin a new life. My book club just finished Paul Auster’s, The Book of Illusions, which is a much darker take on the same theme. A character leaving a life of sorrow behind, isolating themselves from their grief and from other people. We had an interesting discussion in book club about this, about how we deal with what life throws at us and about identity, who we would be if you took away our families, jobs, and friends. My two sentences from this book are from page 282, I feel disorientated, one foot in Aromina, the other in Harmony. And the memories will be back soon enough. I did the photo-mainpluation a while ago and thought it illustrated this idea perfectly!

  1. Hi Lilli!

    Love the teaser idea! I am actually reading 2 books at this time myself (I am glad about that as I get to participate), but not to write a whole article here, I will share one:

    It is called “Slow Death By Rubber Duck” by Rick Smith and Bruce Lourie. It is a book that examines the chemical contamination in our bodies from all the personal products, etc we use. Really highly recommended so far!

    Here is the teaser: “This greater exposure for kids is a serious problem in its own right but is compounded by the fact that kids are at a greater risk of harm from pollution than adults. During these incredible periods of growth, children are particularly susceptible to damage or disruption by chemical agents.”

    Also I wanted to let you know I nominated you for the “Kreativ Blogger” Award, if you should choose to accept it🙂
