Teaser Tuesday: Olive Kitteridge

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
  • 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!
This weeks teasers is from Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout

For many years Henry Kitteridge was a pharmacist in the next town over, driving every morning on snowy roads, or rainy roads, or summer-time roads, when the wild raspberries shot their growth in brambles along the last section of town before he turned off to where the wider road led to the pharmacy.  Retired now, he stills wakes early and remembers how mornings used to be his favorite, as though the world were his secret, tires rumbling softly beneath him and the light emerging through the early fog, the brief sight of the bay off to his right, then the pines, tall and slender, and almost always he rode with the window partly open because he loved the smell of the pines and the heavy salt air, and in the winter he loved the smell of the cold.

That's the whole first paragraph, two sentences.

Don't forget to post a link to your teaser!
I want to read it.


  1. That might be one of the long two sentences I've read. I hope you're enjoying the book :)


    1. I was shocked when typing out the two sentences how long it was. I didn't notice when I was reading.

  2. Haha, a very descriptive teaser. I Like it. I also think the cover is nice.

    Here's mine:

    1. I love this cover. It's simple and beautiful. Thanks for stopping by.
