[Teaser Tuesdays]: April 7

TeaserTuesdays-ADailyRhythm3Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by A Daily Rhythm. 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!

First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros is a weekly meme hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea. It lets us share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon. 

3 months! I've been away from book reading and blogging for t.h.r.e.e. horrifying months :O :'(
2015 is indeed one of the busiest years for me, as deadlines are sticking everywhere. I have only touched two books so far, which is really down degrading for me. I think my Goodreads Reading Challenge this year will be a failure T_T

Nevertheless, I'm trying to keep back on track only a bit. I admit that in this busy days, the only genre that catches me is contemporary. So here's the newest pick from me which I'm struggling so hard to finish despite all the bumps.


The first paragraph and teaser:

First paragraph:

The P-38 WWII Nazi handgun looks comical lying on the breakfast table next to a bowl of oatmeal. It's like some weird steampunk utensil anachronism. But if you look very closely just above the handle you can see the tiny stamped swastika and the eagle perched on top, which is real as hell.

Random teaser:

It's amazing how different they are from me.
Also, it's sort of thrilling to mess with their heads-to see how stupid they are, because they would never dream I have a gun, even though I basically just told them I do.

~p. 108, "Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock" by Matthew Quick.

Does this teaser whip you up? For me, since I read the blurb of this book, I've already been excited to get into it! There's some kind of tug on me which urges me to read more of Matthew Quick's books. I'm sure this one will be a firework for me :)

What about you? What do you have for this week? Please share me with me in the comment box below :)
