It’s time again for Teaser Tuesday. What’s Teaser Tuesday? It’s a game. (Based on pageturnsblog.) How do we play? I try to convince you to pick up and read the book I’m currently reading by posting two “teaser” sentences. You in turn try to convince me to pick up the book you are reading by posting two teaser sentences from your book. Here are the rules:
- Pick up what you’re reading.
- Open to a random page.
- Post two sentences from somewhere on the page. (Don’t choose sentences that will give away too much, you don’t want to ruin it for others.)
- Include the Title and Author so that others can start reading it.
My teaser this month is:
Cryer’s Cross by Lisa McMann
“I don’t want to disapper. I thought I might want to … to be with him, but I don’t.”
Now, it’s your turn. Post two sentences along with the Title and Author of the book.

Since late summer, we at CLP-Main in the Teen Department have given our teen customers the chance to write their six word memoir. It’s been a great experiment with some wonderful results. Here are just a few of the memoirs that have adorned our pinboard wall:
Live, Love, Grow, Learn, And Peace…
Life is full of surprises, too.
Laughed at all the wrong moments.
Had my reservations. Changed my ticket.
Life is weird. I found out.
Life is weird, so be weirder.
No time to do so much!
Weird stuff happens. Especially to me.
Life is full of laughs, dude.
Six Seven Word Memoir – I had a hard but fixable life.
