Teaser Tuesdays: Byrd

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading

Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too 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!

Byrd by Kim Church p. 40

"It's not some great romantic adventure, not like Kerouac. The deal with Kerouac was, he could come in off the road any time he felt like it."

Ah, the disillusionment of the mid-20s wannabee Beat. Honestly, I've never felt very sorry for those people. Those dreams (wanting to be like Kerouac) seem so ludicrous that they're doomed to fail.

This book is new to me. I hope you are enjoying it. My teasers this week are from Iron Hearted Violet by Kelly Barnhill and Pray for Silence by Linda Castillo. Happy reading!

Love the book's cover -- striking in its simplicity. Your Teaser made me want to know more. What is the character involved in that he can't get out of?
My Tuesday post features BETTER THAN YOUR DREAMS.

Sounds interesting.

How about a Christmas cozy mystery to help to cool you down during the summer? Here's my latest teaser: http://pdworkman.com/excerpt-from-christmas-carol-murder-teasertuesday-2/

Hah, I agree, they do seemed doomed to fail. Still, its a little sad to think about the death of one's ideals (even when they are that ludicrous).
My Teaser.
