I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Teaser Tuesday: Always Looking Up

MizB at Should Be Reading hosts this cool weekly event.

Teaser Tuesdays asks you to:

--Grab your current read
--Let the book 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!

I'm reading "Always Looking Up" by Michael J. Fox. I don't have two random sentences for you but three "hit me profoundly" sentences. The book has a Prologue, four parts, and an Epilogue. I'm not even through the first part and have three sentences for you.

"Ironic that in order to do my life's work, I had to quit my day job." - pg 29

"Little did I know that within that French fortnight, I would be visited by a muse, and in truly Homeric fashion, it would take the form of a lone rider descending from the mountaintop-sort of." - pg 31

"Sometimes, when you're alone, minutes pass before you even realize you're crying." - pg 45

I'm going to need to take this one in small chunks, I've already gone through several tissues.

Great 'teasers'. I've seen the book, but wasn't sure I could enjoy it with out getting too depressed. I'm guessing by your tissue count that I'd have a hard time.

I'm sure you'll need a whole box of tissues!
