Teaser Tuesday #5


A weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of 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 and the author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.
Corked: A Memoir by Kathryn Borel
"The pale French morning sun blundered through the airport windows.  In spite of my fatigue from the fretting and the jet lag, I was overcome with the prickly excitement one gets from being in another country with its different smells, foreign McDonald's menus, and drugstore products that somehow seem more effective than the ones at home." (page 40)

  1. Why it is, when those places are away from home, they seem so much better? :) What an awesome teaser! Really makes me want to know more.
