Teaser Tuesday

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!

"Nonna's doctor is running late, which is good, since Mom seems to be running late, too. I've breezed through four weeks' worth of People, and Nonna has surreptitiously ripped five recipes out of Dr. Hebert's Good Housekeeping and stuffed them into her purse, when the nurse pops her head into the waiting room (117)."

From The Brilliant Fall of Gianna Z. by Kate Messner

I've always wondered what kind of people were cutting stuff out of doctor's office magazines. Cool teaser.

This is on my tbr mental pile. My mother used to embarrass the heck out of me with her recipe-thieving at the doctor, dentist office!

Good teaser - makes me wonder why they're at a doctor's offices.

Here's my Teaser Tuesday.

Glad to know I'm not the only one stealing recipes at the doctor's office!

I've got a football teaser this week - and a giveaway!
