Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesdays - July 1st

Every Tuesday Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where we share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us?

If you'd like to play along on Teaser Tuesdays, just click the button above.

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!

This week, I'm reading...

Once upon a time, I'd imagined my adulthood would include a bright purple bicycle, a daily dish of ice cream, hair that would do whatever I wanted it to, and lots of books.

Fast-forward to my present age of thirty-three. These days, my bicycle was a silvery green, my ice cream had turned into fruits and vegetables, and my black curly hair still refused to obey any command I gave it.

What do you think? Would you continue reading?


  1. Lol
    When it comes to hair business, nothing goes right.

    My TT

  2. Ha, sounds familiar. Love the cover too. Mine is a travel log by Nellie Bly--but now I wish it was comic, lol. http://wp.me/pZnGI-8U

  3. I think my hair will never do what I want, which is why I've stopped demanding anything from it! I hope from the intro that at least she got loads of books! Thanks for sharing :) Hope you have a great week!
