Teaser Tuesday: The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

 Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To 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!  

The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen.

The Truth About Forever -

“Well, at least it’s over. Next time, everything will go smoothly. Like a well-oiled machine.” Even I, as the newbie, knew this was unlikely.
-- Chapter 4

There’s an entirely different feel to quiet when you’re with someone else, and at any moment it could be broken. Like the difference between a pause and an ending.
-- Chapter 5

I’m having a bad case of book-hangover and needed a relatively short, well-written story with a little drama, but also with an assured happiness factor. Combine that with the fact that I have wanted to read this slightly older title by Sarah Dessen for a while now and you know what I did over the weekend. This is a sweet story, even if the plot and outcome are predicable enough, it’s still very readable and the characters are quite a nice bunch (no matter how many times I wanted to shout at Macy that she should “Please God I’n begging you” get herself together - or rather not-together - and confront her mother).

Do you suffer book-hangover after a good book? If that is the case, do you have an author that you are certain will pick you up?

That first teaser tells me the newbie is not a very optimistic person. Here's ours for this week: http://www.ourstack.blogspot.com/2013/03/tuesday-teasers-love-story-and-memoir.html

Great teasers -- I enjoyed this book. I find that Dessen is great to read if you want something quick to take your mind of things or get you out of a reading slump. Her stories are often predictable, but I enjoy her writing.

Here's my TEASER TUESDAYS post.
