Teaser Tuesday (21)

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!

Shine by Lauren Myracle

Shine I guess what I’d decided was that looking at only people’s outsides- what they wore, what they did, how they regarded cows- wasn’t good enough.  I needed to think about their insides too.  I need to remember there was a difference.  For awhile there, I think I forgot there was one, and so I spent a lot of time comparing my insides to other people’s outsides, which made me feel broken and didn’t get me anywhere. 

My sadness about him sat dark and heavy in my heart, but I think it would have been worse if it hadn’t.  It was right to be sad when sad things happened. 

pg. 356

I went there with him, and I willed his grief to flow into me, so that I could bear it on his behalf.

pg. 348

I finished this book, but because it’s total awesomeness, because of how it affected me so strongly, I had to do a Teaser Tuesday with it.  This book is one of the best I’ve ever read, and I’m sure you’ll see me raving about it often.

  1. I haven’t heard anything about Shine, aside from seeing it on Netgalley. To be honest, I would have passed it up completely, but because you loved it (and the passages you posted are incredible) I’ll have to request it very soon.
