Teaser Tuesday (8.1.2013)

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 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!

My Teasers:

“Well then.” A pause. “Can you forgive him?”
- Perfect Match – Jodi Picoult


I haven’t started this book yet, so I have no idea what those sentences mean ^^

My review

 

 

 

 

I started looking for tours I'd like to host and found this tour on Novel publicity's page. The Sullivan series sounded interesting, so I participated in the tour.
   
I guess this book wasn't really what I was looking for. I love the characters but I feel the author doesn't tell enough about them. For example I would have liked to read so much more about Chase's career and more about Chloe. Parts which told about Chase and Chloe (without having sex) were the only ones I was interested in. The sex scenes left me completely cold so I guess they weren't my cup of tea...

My review

 

 

 

 

I became interested in Wake, when I saw the cover. It's somehow so bare and raw. I didn't know the plot or anything when I started reading it, but that's pretty normal to me.
 
The book started promisingly and grabbed a hold of me easily. It is easy-to-read and well written. But somehow I feel it is too long. I can't put a finger on why, but that's how I feel. I am also disappointed in how the book ended. The ending is boring, really. It's sad, because I think one of the most important things is the ending, how it's built. I thought this book had potential for an amazing end.
 
Yeah, that's enough a...

My Book Beginning:
“Jem: January 19 to 23
Monday:
Even sitting in the back corner of the room, in the farthest desk from student traffic and the teacher’s line of sight, it is possible to be the center of attention. The really curious thing about it is that I can be invisible at the same time.
No one likes to look at seriously ill people. It’s awkward. It might be catching. It might happen to you some day, and that ruins the happy reality of your otherwise happy moment.”
