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!



"She and Adam joked all the time about the social purgatory to which they had condemned themselves by having kids so young: some of their old friends were still hooking up in bars and setting up Hamptons shares, while people who actually lived the same sort of domesticated life the Moreys lived tended to be a dozen years older, boring as hell, and too covetous of their youth to befriend them in any case. They'd go to some school function and after a couple of drinks all the middle aged Wall Street husbands would be macking on hers; she thought it was hilarious and Adam did too, and then the next day their fat-ass wives would make a point of not talking to her, as if that was supposed to be some sort of punishment." (48-49).


The Privileges by Jonathan Dee
I'm not very far into this one, but I am enjoying it so far, and hoping to get it read today because I can lounge around a bit more since it is spring break.
