I had such fun with this last week (see here), that I thought I’d give it another go. It’s also a good way to update y’all with what I’m reading, as I’ve been reading some longer books this year so far (or just going to bed a bit earlier!)
So I finished last week’s book – I Always Loved You – click it to check the review.
And now I’m reading, The Barkeep by William Lashner, courtesy of Kindle First.
Teaser p.225: (I’m letting my daughter tell me 3 random numbers to pick my pages on my Kindle since I can’t open a hard book!)
When the woman slipped off the chair, she took a few bills out of her wallet and dropped them on the bar. “For the drinks,” she said. “If you see him, please tell him not to come home.”
Description from Amazon:
Justin Chase is the perfect barkeep, tending bar as he lives his life, in a state of Zen serenity. At least until Birdie Grackle, a yellow-haired, foul-mouthed alcoholic from Texas, walks into his bar, orders a Mojito, and makes a startling confession.
Six years ago Justin’s life was ripped apart when he discovered his mother’s bludgeoned corpse in the foyer of the family home. Now Justin’s father is serving a life sentence and Justin, after a stint in the asylum, drowns his emotions in a pool of inner peace. But when Birdie Grackle claims to be the hit man who murdered Justin’s mother for the money, Justin is hurled back to the emotions, back to the past, and, most frighteningly of all, back to the father he has tried to leave behind.
Who hired Birdie Grackle to kill Justin’s mother? As Justin pieces together the truth, a merciless killing machine begins stalking the barkeep, leaving a trail of dead in his wake. Someone wants to bury the truth, and maybe Justin, too. As the terror closes in, Justin had better find some answers and find them fast, because the stakes have been raised, his life is on the line, and murder is so not Zen.
Stay tuned for my review later this week, and feel free to post your Teaser Tuesday link below! I was so excited last week to make some new friends and add some books to my never-ending “to-read” list! Thanks!
Here are the rules by:
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!
