“Maybe abortion seemed different when it was just an interesting topic to write a paper about or debate over drinks, when you never imagined it might affect you.”

– pg 149 “The Mothers” by Brit Bennett

“By senior year, she thought of Oceanside as a tiny beach setting trapped inside a snow globe; occasionally, she might take it down from her bookshelf and gaze at it, but she could never fit inside.”

– pg 148 “The Mothers” by Brit Bennett

Those are my teasers for this Tuesday.  If you posted a Teaser Tuesday, feel free to post the link here.  I’d love to get a taste of what you are reading. There’s always room on Mt. TBR for just one (…or two…or three…) more books, right?

“Toby told me to take a taxi from Grand Central to the apartment.  I stared out the window the whole way, because it was raining, which is how I like the city best.  It looks like it’s been polished up.  All the streets shine and the lights from everywhere reflect off the black.  It’s like the whole place has been dipped in sugar syrup.  Like the city is one big candy apple.”

“Standing happy and slightly drunk in my kitchen, I’m unaware that tonight is the end of all this.  The end of everything I know, everything I love.

No one tells you it’s all about to change, to be taken away.  There’s no proximity alert, no indication that you’re standing on the precipice.  And maybe that’s what makes tragedy so tragic.  Not just what happens, but how it happens: a sucker punch that comes at you out of nowhere, when you’re least expecting it.  No time to flinch or brace.”

– pg 1  “Dark Matter” by Blake Crouch

“One of the things I love most about Daniela is her honesty.  She has a direct link hardwired from her heart to her mouth.  No filter, no self revision.  She says what she feels, without a shred of guile or cunning.  She works no angles.”

– pg 93  “Dark Matter” by Blake Crouch

“‘You don’t fool me, darling,’ she said with a playful little smile and crept into his big arms.  ‘You’re dancing on the inside, Ove, when no one’s watching.  And I’ll always love you for that.  Whether you like it or not.'”
