Teaser Tuesdays: Quitter (Mar.5)

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!

“We wait for the lightning strike that will completely redefine our lives and give us clear direction. But the truth is, the greatest impact tends to come from hinge moments.”

  1. Can I admit I don’t know what a “hinge moment” is? I’m guessing it’s something much more subtle than a lightning strike, and I think that’s the case for just about everyone excluding Powerball winners and young entrepreneurs of the Zuckerberg variety.

    Here’s my TT from Prodigy by Marie Lu, FANTASTIC book.

    • Sure! Absolutely! But, I think the point he’s trying to make is that it’s not all “lightning strike” moments, either… sometimes it’s the quieter things that can almost pass by unnoticed that still turn your life in a new direction, right?

    • LOL. No, you’re right on that. I love motivational books! I love books that make me think, make me grow, teach me something. I read a TON of nonfiction. In fact, you should see the list of nonfiction books that I want to read that are “challenging” to me! Some people would look at those books and think I’m crazy to want to read them! ;)

  2. Oh, yeah. Changing your life always involves hard work — lightning flashes don’t usually bring something good, but bad. Like accidents, deaths, etc. “Careful what you wish for”, right?
    Today, my TT is from Flawed.

  3. Yep, I’ll admit, I’m still waiting for that lightning strike. :( Thanks for sharing!

    Here’s my teaser from Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers. Happy Tuesday! :D

  4. I’m guessing a hinged moment is a that time just before the lighting strike, when things are rolling around and your trying to make a choice or come up with an idea. Interesting teaser. Thanks for sharing. My Teaser

    • Yeah, I hear ya… I’m currently out of work, too. Mind you, being out of work, I don’t have the money to pursue the “dream job” just yet. So, a-job-hunting I will go. ;)

      Good luck to you!

    • Oh, what I wouldn’t give to be able to “work for me”! That’s my dream… but it still has to wait a while. Some day, though! ;)

  5. Hinge moments, never heard it put that way. This must be a really interesting book. I’ve heard so much about dreams lately.
