Teaser Tuesday: Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira

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 is from Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira.

"I think he does this for the same reason Hannah doesn't turn in her work when her teachers say she is smart.  I think a lot of people want to be someone, but we are scared that if we try, we won't be as good as everyone thinks we should be."  ~page 141 of Love Letters to the Dead  (an ARC).


  1. Ooh, lovely :)

  2. Love your Teaser. I think the author is right -- fear of success does sometimes keep people from even trying.
    My Teaser is from CAPE MAYBE.
