Teaser Tuesday


* Grab your current read.
* Let the book fall open to a random page.
* Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
* You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from…that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given.
* Please avoid spoilers!

My Teaser:

She could have been a role model for every woman my age who was finally embracing her orgasms and her sisters, letting her breasts go free, getting an education, a job, a female lover. I could have made a statement.

~ The Memoir of Marilyn Monroe - Sandi Gelles-Cole (TOURS JUNE 8)


  1. A very interesting teaser. Marilyn Monroe was a fascinating woman.

  2. I've never read one whole book about Marilyn Monroe. I'll bet there is a lot I don't know. I always wanted to read "Blonde" by Joyce Carol Oates. I'll bet this is a good memoir.

  3. I've been thinking of getting this one. It really sounds like an interesting book.

    My teaser is here.

  4. When I was younger I used to be fascinated by Marilyn Monroe. She was such a complicated person - so much more than her image.

  5. As I was reading your teaser, I was wondering who she was talking about but looking at the title it makes sense now.

  6. This definitely sounds like an entertaining read! Thanks for sharing!

  7. This might have to go on my tbr list. Thanks!!

  8. When I think of this blonde beauty, I think of her standing over a grate in the road with the skirt of her dress billowing around her. She was a beauty indeed but there's definitely a lot we don't know about her. This should be an interesting read.
