Tuesday Teaser - 01/02/12

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!


My Teasers:



"You were ambitious - for your life, what it was like when you woke up in the morning, and not some attainment. Like most people who did not answer a particular calling from an early age, you placed work beside yourself; any occupation would fill up your day but not your heart. I like that about you. I like it enormously."

We Need To Talk About Kevin (Lionel Shriver), pg. 19
 

"I never, ever took you for granted. We met too late for that; I was nearly thirty-three by then, and my past without you was too stark and insistent for me to find the miracle of companionship ordinary."

We Need To Talk About Kevin (Lionel Shriver), pg. 21

I have seen this book around, but these quotes aren't anything I'd have imagined from the book..makes it even more interesting to me. I really like the second quote alot. I'll have to check more into this book and maybe finally add it to my buy-at-some-point list.

Happy New Year!

I don't think I ever really decided what I wanted to be when I grew up! While others zeroed in on their goals at Career Day, I just poked around. This sounds like a book I'd enjoy.
Here's my teaser:
