Yep its that time again for ---- >>> Teaser Tuesday!!! (the crowd roars)

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! 

My teaser comes from the book The Leisure Seeker: A Novel by Michael Zadoorian :

pg 2:
"You yourself might ask: Is this the best idea? Two down-on-their-luck geezers, one with more health problems than a third world country, the other so senile that he doesn't  even know what day it is-taking a cross-country road trip?"


I haven't started it yet but it does sound like an interesting story!


From the back of the book:  
In Michael Zadoorian's The Leisure Seeker the Robinas have shared a wonderful life for more than sixty years.  Now in their eighties, Ella suffers from cancer and John has Alzheimer's. Yearning for one last adventure, the self -proclaimed "down-on-their-luck geezers" kidnap themselves from the adult children and doctors who seem to run their lives and steal away from their home in suburban Detroit on a forbidden vacation of rediscovery.  With Ella as his vigilant copilot, John steers their '78 Leisure Seeker RV along the forgotten roads of Route 66 toward Disneyland in search of a past they're having a damned hard time remembering. Yet Ella is determined to prove that, when it comes to life, you can go back for seconds-even when everyone says you can't.


Sounds like an awesome read!

Terrific teaser! It does sound like an awesome book! I had never heard of this author before--he must be Armenian.

Sounds like a good idea to me - a great lot of trouble could be ahead and we all like that in a book! :)

I have two elderly parents who live very close to me. I see them all the time. This quote reminds me of them. The two are aware of their limitations but have a great sense of humor about it.

On first glance, I would say that it is not a good idea. In fact, it sounds like a really bad idea. I hope you enjoy the book.

My Tuesday Teaser is Claire de Lune by Christine Johnson.

One of my old coworkers did a trip with her husband before his dementia got too bad. I love that she had fond memories of that trip she could hold on to. That's a great teaser! Thanks for visiting my blog, A Little Bookish.
