A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick

She checked to make sure she wasn’t being followed, although now it hardly mattered. She walked past the brownstones, turned into the street of dingy clapboard houses, and stood in front his red house.

And hearing her voice, I saw her face; to be exact, the face she’d turned on me when I sneezed. Her disgust had power.

Giving you the benefit of the doubt, you’re on the wrong job site, you. Worst case scenario, you’re an enemy agent pretending to be a moron. Now get lost before I beat you up.

My two teasers

Panicked, heart pounding, I watched them all — the smiles of relief as the passport was placed in their hands, the angles of expectations as they passed through the security gate, the lightness in their movements as they disappeared onto the tarmac. I watched each one, until the last one passed through the exit, and the door closed. I was alone, with Paris on the other side.

Paris Was Ours (Thirty-Two Writers Reflect On the City of Light) — Penelope Rowlands

I’m reading this in preparation for my honeymoon in Paris. There’s no better way to get a feel for the city, really.

So after I said good-night to you and Nora, I met him there and we went to a lot of places, winding up in this place where I got the gun. It was an awful tough place.

Divisadero by Michael Ondaatje

She told him it was nothing, but at the farm, when she climbed out of the truck, she could hardly walk and he carried her into the house. It was the first time he had touched her in a year.

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson

He had killed only a fraction of these women, but every woman anywhere near him was a potential victim. The cataloguing had the mark of a passionate hobby, and he must have devoted countless hours to it.

I must be the last person on this Earth to finally pick up and read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series, and I’m glad I didn’t wait another day.

The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

He looked like a shattered man, and his face was covered in sweat despite the biting cold. When he saw Miquel again after more than ten years, Aldaya smiled bitterly and said, “We’re all cursed, Miquel. You, Julian, Fumero, and me.”

My Two Teasers:

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith

“Dear God,” she prayed, “let me be something every minute of every hour of my life. Let me be gay; let me be sad.”

Can I just take a moment to say how much I adore this book? I’m taking that moment…
