Teaser Tuesday - Olive Kitteridge

It's Teaser Tuesday...

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!

This week my teaser is from Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout

"But the gesture, the smooth cupping of the little girl's head, the way Suzanne's hand in one quick motion caressed the fine haif and thin neck, has stayed with Olive. It was like watching some woman dive from a boat and swim easily up to the dock. A reminder how some people could do things others could not."
Happy reading, and happy Tuesday!

  2. Hi Roland! I have not read it - but I've heard of it.

    I looked on Amazon and it seems like it got great reviews, and was frequently bought with "The Help", although I'm not sure that's useful information! :)

    If you read it, let me know what you think!
