Teaser Tuesday: My Unscripted Life by Lauren Morrill

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Ambrosia of The Purple Booker.
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!

My Unscripted Life by Lauren Morrill.

My Unscripted Life –
Delacorte Press

She tosses me a pen from the mug next to the computer. I catch it and sign, hoping it doesn’t obligate me to shave my head or dance a jig anytime someone says the words “peanut butter.”
— Chapter 2

You’ve got to quit confusing the plan with the dream. Plans change. They fall apart. Sometimes outside forces even blow them to smithereens. But the dream is what you always come back to. It’s your lighthouse in the fog. In the freaking storm.
— Chapter 10

Happy new year, everyone! I hope you had a good one and have already started well into this new round around the sun. At one point I got a little fed up with this dreary wet and stormy winter and what better way to get rid of it than with a summer book? This is a pretty summer romance with quite a few very quotable sentences. Admittedly you’re more than likely to get me interested in a book when it’s a two worlds collide type of love story ... Pride and Prejudice ring a bell? They can be very straightforward and often also formulaic, but I nevertheless appreciate them when they manage to convey this special feeling. This book does that quite well and tops it off with a nice underlying plot of character development.

How did you start your reading year? Do you have a resolution on how many books you want to read in 2017? Let’s hear from you in the comments!

Good teasers! I've resolved to read at least 50 books this year. First two up, one is a mystery - Dead Sleeping Shaman. The second one is I Hate Everyone, Except You by Clinton Kelly. The second book is where My Teaser is from this week.

I like the explanation of the difference in "plans" and "dreams." This sounds like a book I'd enjoy.
