Teaser Tuesday - Devotion: A Memoir by Dani Shapiro

Teaser Tuesdays is an interesting and fun book-related meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Be prepared to add several new books to your TBR list! I do every week!

My Teaser:

" As I lie on the floor, folded into child's pose, I try to stay with the physical sensation. It's hard, scary, completely out-of-control. Still, I try to let it come-- to welcome it, even. I know it has lessons to teach me."

from Devotion: A Memoir by Dani Shapiro (p.30)

Anyone can play along! If you'd like to participate, Just do the following:
*Grab your current read
*Open to a random page
*Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. (I often use a few more!)
*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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

*And, finally, don't forget to link your post to MizB's at Should Be Reading. If you don't have a blog, simply share your "teasers" in a comment.


  1. I left a comment that may have disappeared.
    Just mentioning that I like to read memoirs and this sounds interesting.

  5. Interesting teaser! I've never heard of the book/author before--thanks for sharing!

  6. I just read the most amazing review of this book over at Coffee and a Book Chick, and have to say that my interest in this book has been piqued beyond belief. I am hopping that you are loving it and will be interested in hearing your final take on it.

  7. Just from that snippet, this book sounds interesting! I love the cover, with all its shades of white.
