teasertuesdays2This is my first time participating in this weekly event but I’ve seen so many people joining it, I thought it would be fun. It gives me another excuse to have something to blog about.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. And these are the rules: Grab your current read; Let the book fall open to a random page. Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given! Please avoid spoilers!

From East of Eden by John Steinbeck –

Her life may have been her language, formal, developed, indecipherable. It is easy to say she was bad, but there is little meaning unless we know why.

From Mystic River by Dennis Lehane –

Win for me. Win for my kids. Win for my marriage so I can carry your winning back to the car with me and sit in the glow of it wiht my family as we drive back toward our otherwise winless lives.
