Teaser Tuesday: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser this week is for the much-hyped Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. This young adult has received tons of rave reviews. I decided to see what all the fuss was about and add it to my TBR mountain.

Teaser (from page 4 since I just started this one):
It was around the time of the divorce that all traces of decency vanished, and his dream of geing the next great Southern writer was replaced by hisw desire to be the next published writer. So he started writing these novels set in Small Town Georgia about folks with Good American Values who Fall in Love and then contract Life-Threatening Diseases and Die.
You know, that sounds like the type of book I avoid as though I would catch a Life-Threatening Disease and Die myself. I already like the main character's voice.

  6. I've read lots of wonderful reviews on this debut. But it's definitely more romantic, more chick lit than any book I've ever read. Great teaser though!
