Teaser Tuesday (17)

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 a memoir, a genre The Coffee Pot has had yet to see! :) I'm also including two teasers, something else that has never happened at The Coffee Pot. New month, new stuff. Good. Good.

It Rains In February: A Wife's Memoir of Love and Loss
Leila Summers

Teaser 1:
Kindle Location 129-30

I linger, desperately wanting to stay in a moment where other possibilities exist, other outcomes. To pause here, or rewind back to any day besides this one, a day before you met her. A time when you were still in love with me.

Teaser 2:
Kindle Location 362-64

It was almost as if you lacked the filters that most of us keep in place for our own protection. Instead, you took the whole lot in and this resulted in your viewing the world on some days as a beautiful and mystifying place, and on others, as a rotting and vile hell full of misery and danger.
