teaser teusday: the smoke jumper

Written by Darlyn At Tuesday, March 02, 2010
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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Currently read The Smoke Jumper by Nicholas Evans. Just read the first chapter.

"The important things in life always happened by accident. At fifteen, she didn't know much-in fact, with each passing year she was a lot less clear about most of things."

  2. The teaser sounds a lot like me, and after 50 some odd years I still fell this way. Sixteen years ago I remember reading Sparks' debut book Horse Whispers and loved it, but to be honest I have not read only one other book of his. Like the movies though. Enjoy!

  8. That is a good one! And the most important things in life, despite best laid plans, often do happen by accident.
