Teaser Tuesday 8-17

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. It's easy to play along! Just:

  • 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 others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Mine this week comes from Corelli's Mandolin by Louis de Bernieres pg 281.

Corelli's Mandolin: A Novel 
"Love is not breathless, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining he is kissing every cranny of your body....That is just being 'in love', which any fool can do. Love itself is what's left over when being in love has burned away, and it is both an art and a fortunate accident." 

Happy Tuesday!  Hope you are not all melting in this heat like I am.
