Teaser Tuesdays (Jan.15)

January 15, 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!

DoWhatYouCanPlan_HolleyGerth_EBOOKMy Teasers:

“But it doesn’t have to be that way. Bad days are inevitable — letting them turn into the thread that unravels your entire plan is not.”

~ p.42, “The Do What You Can Plan” {eBook} by Holley Gerth

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks! :D

  1. That is a fabulous quote! Very inspirational. Here is my TT. Old Follower :D Jaclyn @ JC’s Book Haven

  2. Very good advice/way of thinking! Sometimes you really do need to just look on the bright side and roll with it haha. Thanks for sharing!

    Here’s my Teaser Tuesday at Bookmunchies (:

  3. Excellent advice! Looks like a great book. Here is my teaser for this week.

  4. Love your teaser. Of course, when you’re in the middle of a bad day, it’s sometimes hard to think it isn’t going to last forever. This would be something to write on a sticky note and put on my computer screen, for the day after a bad day!
    My Teaser Tuesday excerpt is from THE STORYTELLER by Sharon Tillotson.

  5. Awesome teaser. Happy reading.
