Teaser Tuesday

So, it's time for Teaser Tuesday again, hosted by Miz Biz at Should be Reading.
If you want to play along just:
• 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!

My teaser for this week is from a book with a neat background. Struck by Lighting by Chris Colfer. For any "gleeks" out there you'll know Chris as Kurt from Glee. Interestingly enough, he wrote the book as a screenplay, had the movie made (which he also starred in) and then wrote the novel after the movie. I didn't know any of this when I picked the book up. I just knew it sounded like a fun concept. So far, (and I'm only a couple chapters in) the  MC has an amazing, extremely funny, teen voice. I'm really enjoying it. And, with that being said, here is my tease:

"Until I was ten and saw a parents friend's interact, I never realized that people got married because they wanted to, because they loved each other. I always thought it was more like jury duty: You got an envelope in the mail telling you when, where, and who you were required to reproduce with."


  1. I'm not a Gleek, but I love the cover and the excerpt. I bet you're really going to enjoy the book! :-)

  2. That's a bleak view on marriage. Thanks for sharing.

  3. ROTFL. Dig that excerpt! And yeah, I can totally relate to having that idea in your head, from observing family and whatnot.

  4. Lexa--The cover was what drew me to it. So far its very enjoyable.

    Sheena--Bleak, but funny. The MC has an awesome voice!

    Mina--Exactly. You never know what "normal" is until you get out in the world and realize how crazy your family is. haha

  5. I'm semi-gleek lol

    I heard about this through a different character from the show being on Ellen. I think this was the same project. Pretty interesting I thought.

    Did you ever finish it up?
