Teaser Tuesday!

Teaser Tuesday January 22nd 2013
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 the page
~BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! ( make sure that what you share doesn't give away to 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 have a huge list this week I plan to read, but I'm dragging not sure why.

Currently I'm reading:

by Marilyn Almodovar
Time Travel Sci Fi


My cell teases me. The moment I move to my bedroom window, it seems to perk up, only to stick out its tongue and die on me. I wonder if I should hold a funeral. It’s been hours since the thing worked. Maybe I should just give up on trying to communicate with the outside world. 
I place the phone on the nightstand and press my forehead against the window. With no cable and no cell phone, it’s as if we’re living in the eighties or something. It’s going to be a long winter break. 
Propelled by a need to satisfy my boredom, my feet take me back to the computer. No internet. Can this day get any worse?
 “Please, please, please,” I plead softly, staring at the monitor. The internet bar is dead, red cross over it and all.

I look again out the window. The snow has been falling nonstop all day, a fact that I know wears on my mom’s nerves. She seems convinced that blizzards are health hazards. I guess I can understand why, seeing as her dad died during one. We moved to Florida when I was young, so I haven’t had much exposure to snow. There is something both alluring and terrifying about it.

What are you reading today?

  1. That definitely made me want to read this book. I was first captured by the cover when I saw it yesterday (I think it was yesterday).
