Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,

Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading and asks you to :

1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3 . Share 2 "teaser" sentences also citing the title of the book and the author and in that way people can have great recommendations if they like the "teaser".
4. Please avoid spoilers!

It is well after midnight, the fire dying down to embers, when we finally stand and stretch, reluctant even now to bring this long, lovely day to an end. Here in the darkness we have discovered, to our amazement, that in June these wild, untended fields are alight with fireflies, that they spark and tumble like falling stars through the tall grass.
