I’ve been reading this book for almost a week now. I’m about six chapters into it, and to tell you the truth, I just don’t like it. I mean, I keep reading it because I want to like it, but I don’t. I keep guessing the plot twists before they happen and figuring things out before the characters do, and it’s just a real letdown. However, there have been some genuinely creepy moments, and the pictures are very eerie and strange. But even so, I think I’m going to have to give up on it. I feel a bit guilty, but I just don’t think I can finish it.
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!
I’m reading Love in the Corner Pocket by Marlene Perez.
Here are my sentences:
“I was just a girl in a pair of low riders who might give them a glimpse of my thong when I bent over to take a shot. Or that’s what guys thought when they first played pool with me.”
“…I think I have this idea that I can do anything by writing. Like I can be myself if I write letters… Like I can change things, punish people, fall in love, and find myself, all by writing the right words.”
