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!


"And with the phonebook-sized stack of papers on my lap still unmarked, I - once more, with feeling - take the pledge to quit drinking. Cross my heart. Pinky swear to myself. This is it, I say, the last night I sit here. (171)"

Lit by Mary Karr
I'm enjoying this memoir - having read one of Karr's previous books. Look for my review later this week.

Nice teaser! I've heard a lot of good things about Lit, but I've been hesitant, since I wasn't crazy about The Liars' Club.

My teaser this week is also from a memoir--you can read it at bookwanderer.
