Teaser Tuesdays :)

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!

 I´m reading "Funny Girl" by Nick Hornby as an eBook right now, and I love it ♥ 

It's the swinging 60s and the nation is mesmerized by unlikely comedy star Sophie Straw, the former Blackpool beauty queen who just wants to make people laugh, like her heroine Lucille Ball. Behind the scenes, the cast and crew are having the time of their lives. But when the script begins to get a bit too close to home, and life starts imitating art, they all face a choice. The writers, Tony and Bill, comedy obsessives, each harbour a secret.
The Oxbridge-educated director, Dennis, loves his job but hates his marriage. The male star Clive, feels he's destined for better things. And Sophie Straw, who's changed her name and abandoned her old life, must decide whether to keep going, or change the channel. Nick Hornby's new novel is about popular culture, youth and old age, fame, class and teamwork. It offers a wonderfully captivating portrait of youthful exuberance and creativity, and of a period when both were suddenly allowed to flourish.

"Dennis took her up to the fourth floor the following afternoon. She looked enchanting, he thought"

  3. Oh what a great teaser from a great sounding book. Here is my TT https://cleopatralovesbooks.wordpress.com/2015/02/03/teaser-tuesday-february-3/.

  4. Interesting teaser. The '60's were a time of such change in all areas of life - this one sound like it captures part of that journey.

    My Teaser this week

  5. I probably wouldn't choose this book based on the teaser alone, but read with the blurb it sounds more interesting. Here's my teaser:
