Where Are You? / Teaser Tuesday (May 12)

I'm still Violet and I'm still in the Los Angeles area. I've met a raggedy ex-junkie bass player who has added some sparkle back to my life. I even invited him over for lunch. I don't think I want the relationship to go further because I realize that I really do love my husband. Meanwhile, my sister-in-law, Sally, is chasing a soon-to-be famous sports writer. She's trying not to scare him off by being too needy.

For more Where Are You? answers, visit Raidergirl3 at An Adventure in Reading.

MizB at Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Here's how it works: Grab your current read; let the book fall open to a random page; and share 2 “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. For more teasers, click on through to MizB's blog.

"What do you want, Jeremy?" Sally felt herself entering that zone that scared off all the other boyfriends, the one that gave her the reputation for being "crazy." (p. 91)

—Both from This One Is Mine by Maria Semple

Sally sounds like a friend of mine. She has a crazy zone that scares people. Great teaser.

Margot 5/12/09, 9:21 AM  

Sounds like one of those books where you think you know those people.

Julie P. 5/12/09, 9:31 AM  

Very cute! Are you enjoying THIS ONE IS MINE?

Dorte H 5/12/09, 9:58 AM  

You and a junkie adding sparkle to your life? Well, enjoy ....

Will you believe me if I tell you I am not in the middle of any book right now? It is called WORK, and it is not fun.

This sounds like a fun book with some very human characters!

Julie: I have mixed feelings, which is why I'm still reading it. The review will be up on Friday or Saturday. The writing is good, it's the characters I'm not sure of.

Dorte: I know the feeling. But reading will come back...

Reminds me of my teenage years.

Ooooh... I wonder what zone... Nice teaser!

Jo-Jo 5/12/09, 12:21 PM  

Great teaser...this was such an odd book, but I kind of enjoyed it in a 'crazy' kind of way! My teaser is here.

JoAnn 5/12/09, 1:13 PM  

That sounds interesting...I'll be looking for your review!

Sounds like everyone is having relationship problems. Bummer. But good teasers! I'll be interested to see your review of this one.

I like this teaser! I didn't think I was interested in reading this book, but your teaser is making me reconsider.

Jess 5/12/09, 3:00 PM  

Never heard of this book, great teaser.

Jenny Girl 5/12/09, 3:05 PM  

I like the title. What are these two sisters-in-law doing haning in LA together?
And really, what does Jeremy want? It's seems like a valid question :)
Here is my teaser

Tonya 5/12/09, 3:36 PM  

Sounds interesting. I look forward to your review.

Here I am!

After watching "Collateral" over the weekend, the last place I want to be right now is in Los Angeles - and most especially not with a druggy (ex or not!). LOL!

Carrie K. 5/12/09, 7:54 PM  

I have this one on my wish list - it's getting too long!

Matt 5/12/09, 7:57 PM  

I'm still in Pakistan as this girl named Saira is learning about the complicated family history of her parents, in the novel called The Writing on My Forehead. :)

Thanks for the teaser - the book sounds interesting. :)

Here's my Teaser! ~ Wendi

Yup - if you are afraid of how the words you just spoke came out, they probably came out the way you feared. Doesn't look like Jeremy will be all that sweet on Sally.

michaelsean 5/13/09, 8:53 PM  

It is not my normal sort of read but I really enjoyed this book!

Rebecca :) 5/19/09, 12:20 AM  

Great teaser sentence, Beth!
