Teaser Tuesday (Sept. 6)

Teaser-Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of Books And A Beat.

Here’s what you do for Teaser Tuesday:

• 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!

Goodreads

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith

I’m currently participating in a readalong on Goodreads of this book that is hosted by Katie from Life Between Words.  It runs through the month of September in case you would like to join us.

Here’s my Tuesday Teasers:

“The bride had divided the unconsumed food amongst the waiters.  There was half of a cold broiled lobster, five stone-cold fried oysters, an inch jar of caviar and a wedge of Roquefort cheese.  The children didn’t like the lobster and the cold oysters had no taste and the caviar seemed too salty.  But they were so hungry that they ate everything on the table and digested it too, during the night.  They could have digested nails had they been able to chew them.”

-pg. 52 “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn” by Betty Smith

“The Nolans just couldn’t get enough of life.  They lived their own lives up to the hilt but that wasn’t enough.  They had to fill in on the lives of all the people they made contact with.”

-pg. 52 “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn” by Betty Smith

An interesting piece to this story is that the Nolans are monetarily very poor, but their lives are extremely full no matter what hardships come their way.  I’m only on page 107, but so far that’s how it’s been for the Nolan family.

Happy Tuesday and Happy Reading!  🙂

My kids went back to school today.  My daughter had some big changes since she started middle school today.  I’m hoping she is having a great day and enjoys all of her new teachers.  If you have kids that started school today or recently, I hope they have a great school year!
