Teaser Tuesday (December 8)

It's Teaser Tuesday! This is an event hosted by MizB at http://shouldbereading.wordpress.com/ :
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share 2 teaser sentences from somewhere on that page
  • Be careful not to include spoileers
  • Make sure to include the title and author so others know what to put on their TBR list.
"She recounted the intimate details of her honey moon while sitting on the edge of Fraidy's bed, pleating the crocheted bedspread between her fingers. (Poor Fraidy was down with a summer cold.) Daisy told her dear old trusted school friends
everything - everything except the fact that she had sneezed just before Harold fell out the window, also that she had remained frozen on the bed for a minute or more afterward, her eyes staring at the ceiling, feeling herself already drifting toward the far end of this calamity."
-The Stone Diaries by Carol Shields


  1. I remember liking this book quite a few years ago, but not much about the plot at all...maybe I should think about a reread.

  2. Wow, now THAT'S a memorable honeymoon!

    Mine is here (teaser, not honeymoon!):


  3. A great book - thank you for the reminder!

  4. I love this book!
