Teaser Tuesday #188





Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. 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 Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser.


 In the uncomfortable plastic seat next to me, my mother, Joyce, saw me checking the time. She kept her voice low as she reached for my arm. "Happy birthday, Evie." "Don't," I grumbled and pulled my arm out of her reach.













This is a book that a friend of mine told me about and said I really needed to read, so of course, I picked it up and figured I would give it a try. Have you read this one? Let me know your thoughts please in the comments below, but please no spoilers!

Book Blogger Hop #85







Book Blogger Hop is another post I'm going to be trying out and this one has a topic each week, which is something I've been trying to bring to the blog.  I'm really excited about this one because I have a hard time coming up with something fresh to talk about and I'm hoping this helps.
If you would be interested in doing your own post, please CLICK HERE to learn more about this great hop!

17th - 23rd - Do you think that readers make better employees, as opposed to non-readers? Why or why not? (submitted by Maria @ A Night's Dream of Books)

I'm not really sure how to answer this one. On one hand, I'm a reader and I know I'm a great employee, but that doesn't mean someone who isn't won't be.  I don't really think being a reader or not has anything to do with it.






What are your thoughts on this one? I'm really not sure it makes a difference if someone is a reader or not. I would love to hear your thoughts though. Leave me a comment below.

 Catcalling me was a mistake that most of the customers and mechanics at Big Jim's Garage only made once. Unfortunately, the owner of this particular Dodge Ram was the type of person who put his paycheck into couping up a Dodge Ram. That--and the urinating stick figure on his back window--was pretty much the only forewarning I needed about the way this was about to o down.











So let's chat about this one, I've had this one on my TBR for a while now. Mainly because I loved her other book The Lovely and the Lost. You can check my review out for that book by clicking here. I know that the above teaser is more than two lines, but I just couldn't pick which two I wanted lol. Anyway, what are your thoughts? Have you read this one?

 10th - 16th - Do you have a reading challenge for 2020? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

My main challenge will be my Goodreads goal for the year. I have been setting it at 50 for the past couple of years and I'm pretty sure that's what I'm going to stick with. It's easy to reach and I normally go over, so that always makes me feel good. I'm not sure the others I want to do this year, just yet, but that will be in an upcoming post very soon!






So what about you, do you have any reading challenges you're going to participate in this year? If so, please let me know which ones so I might be able to figure out the ones I want to do lol. I seriously can't make up my mind this year. Honestly, I'm not even sure I want to do anymore other than my Goodreads goal.

And for a girl that'll live for eternity? That's scary shit. With bated breath, I prepare myself. You never know what fate awaits a monster like me. 













So have you read this one? I just started it and I'm loving it so far. I'll let you know my full thoughts in my upcoming review.
