It’s Teaser Tuesday! What is Teaser Tuesday you ask? Well, Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books And A Beat.
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!
Teaser 1: “Then she smiled, and in that instant, if such a thing were possible, Pasquale fell in love, and he would remain in love for the rest of his life–not so much with the woman, whom he didn’t even know, but with the moment.”
― Jess Walter,
Teaser 2: “Motherhood rarely allows for solitude, yet it begets its own kind of isolation: from one’s past, from one’s youth, from the women we once thought we were and would become.”
― Hannah Nordhaus,

It’s been fifteen days since I began the #SmashYourStacks challenge and I’m sad to say I’ve only read, as of today, three books. Sigh. I’m not sure I’ll reach my goal of eight of my own damn books by May 31st. But it is still more of my own books than I read in April. When I decided to write this update for today I went back and counted the number of my books I’ve read since January and I was surprised I’d only read nine. And in total I’ve read thirty-three books to date. So, this challenge is really helping me go back to my TBR pile and read what I own. In that sense reading the three books is an accomplishment.
Here is the list of three books I’ve read this month:
Are you “smashing your stack?” How many of your own books have you read so far this month?
