First Chapter Tuesday/Teaser Tuesday - April 30th


Every Tuesday Vicki at I'd Rather Be At the Beach 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?



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, now being hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker. 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!


I'm reading this one this week (excerpts from the E-ARC)...






First Chapter... 


New York City
1965

I had creased and folded my subway map so many times over the past few days that it was on the verge of tearing in two.  Somehow I had boarded the wrong train.  Again.  I'd ended up at Times Square instead of 57th Street.  Now what?

Teaser...

I had moved to New York to become a photographer despite my father and everyone else, including the editor at the Youngstown Vindicator, telling me a woman couldn't do that kind of work.



What do you think? Would you keep reading?

  1. Sounds good. I love ground-breaking women stories — life might have been so different if I'd been one of them. Here's my link for today: https://wp.me/p4DMf0-1F1

  2. Great excerpts. I love books that show life back in the 60s, especially since I relished those times. I've had my eye on this book. Thanks for sharing, and here is mine: “BEFORE SHE WAS FOUND””
