Teaser Tuesday (15)


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB at 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!

A few weeks ago the amazing Andrea @ The Bookish Babes offered to let me borrow Love & Lefovers by Sarah Tregay, Thank you! Your awesome :)

Can I tell I just finished this book yesterday and it was fantastic. This was my first time reading a verse novel and I loved everything about it.

Love & Leftovers

“Would he tell me that falling out of love isn’t nearly as painful as admitting it?”

“My wish is to fall cranium over converse in dizzy daydream-worthy love.”


When her parents split, Marcie is dragged from Idaho to a family summerhouse in New Hampshire. She leaves behind her friends, a group of freaks and geeks called the Leftovers, including her emo-rocker boyfriend, and her father.

By the time Labor Day rolls around, Marcie suspects this "vacation" has become permanent. She starts at a new school where a cute boy brings her breakfast and a new romance heats up. But understanding love, especially when you've watched your parents' affections end, is elusive. What does it feel like, really? can you even know it until you've lost it?

Love and Leftovers is a beautifully written story of one girl’s journey navigating family, friends, and love, and a compelling and sexy read that teens will gobble up whole.


  1. Great teasers, Neri! That book has so many to choose from. I'm so happy you loved L&L!

  2. I have never read a book in prose before, and I would be a bit nervous reading it. I have heard great things though, so maybe I should give it a shot! Thanks for sharing, and for stopping by my blog!

  3. Love that last line! A true hopeless romantic!

  4. I have heard that a lot of people love this book. Great teasers.

  5. Those were great teasers!! Love the line about cranium over converse - I think I'll have to add that book to my TBR now! ;D
