It’s Tuesday: Time for Teasers

We love the practice of teasing others with snippets from our books. Here’s what we’re each reading right now:

Molly is reading Fall to Pieces: A Memoir of Drugs, Rock ‘n’ Roll, and Mental Illness” by Mary Forsberg Weiland w/Larkin Warren

“There’s an argument for being stubbornly unrealistic about your dreams. Otherwise they’re not dreams – they’re just ideas you had and then left behind.”

ChaucerianGirl is reading Clearing the Clutter by Mary Lambert

“When bells are used for space clearing they can dislodge stuck energy that it is hard to shift with techniques such as clapping. The clear energy sound field that is left will resonate in your home for a long time to come.”

Izzybella is reading A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies,” said Jojen. “The man who never reads lives only one.”

Margot is reading One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia

As long as Vonetta kept her fear to one shriek and Fern kept hers to biting Miss Patty Cake, I keprt on spinning straw, making everything all right. That’s mainly what I do.

I hope we’ve sufficiently teased you with our selections and you’ll want to know more. What are you reading these days?

About Margot

I'm also known as Joyfully Retired. I love to talk. I love to talk about books I've read, movies I've seen, places I've traveled to, people (especially my children and grandchildren), and Food. On the Quirky Girls Read blog I'm trying to read all the books that have won the major awards and then, of course, talk about them.

      I do love memoirs. This one wavers between being totally engrossing and at times a bit annoying due to the fame and fortune world in your face all the time. But bottom line, it just goes to show that all walks of life are susceptible to addiction – having lots of cashola just makes it easier to feed it.

    All of the teasers are great from the memoir to my fave topic feng shui to the highly acclaimed Martin’s world of mystical warriors and lastly One Crazy Summer has me thinking back to my school girl days.

    Awesome picks ladies 🙂

    My favorite teaser is the one from A Dance With Dragons although I also loved the one from the Rita Williams Garcia book. I’ve heard excellent things about her writing.

  8. Powerful Teasers especially the one from Dance With Dragons. Interesting Teaser about Feng Shui. Bells are the way to do it, huh??? That clear piercing sound, I can see where it would clear out bad energy.
