Teaser Tuesday #49 and Top Ten Tuesday #59


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading. Bloggers choose two
sentences out of our current read to peak others' curiosity.




Being Henry David Being Henry David by Cal Armistead

  

Teaser:

The night is gentle, holding my breath, and at least for this moment in time I feel safe. So I decide to tell him. 




Seventeen-year-old "Hank" has found himself at Penn Station in New York City with no memory of anything --who he is, where he came from, why he's running away. His only possession is a worn copy of Walden, by Henry David Thoreau. And so he becomes Henry David-or "Hank" and takes first to the streets, and then to the only destination he can think of--Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts. Cal Armistead's remarkable debut novel is about a teen in search of himself. Hank begins to piece together recollections from his past. The only way Hank can discover his present is to face up to the realities of his grievous memories. He must come to terms with the tragedy of his past, to stop running, and to find his way home..



Top Ten is an original feature/weekly meme created here at
The Broke and the Bookish that features a great bookish top ten every week.


So many good books to recommend and I recommend so many depending on the person. I have a hard time narrowing it down to ten so I will stick to 10 I have rated 5 hearts lately.

  2. Intriguing teaser. I like your list too. I started The Madman's Daughter and set it aside for something else. I really need to finish it. Come see my teasers for Pivot Point by Kasie West and Three Sisters by Susan Mallery. Happy reading!
