Teaser Tuesday: Dinner Party by Tracy Bloom

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Purplebooker.
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 and author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Sometimes Beth felt like she was two people. There was the outside Beth who was capable, reliable, down-to-earth, productive, ready with a laugh and. of course, cuddly. Then there was the inside Beth. She had a constant monologue whispering in her ear: This isn't enough, you're not happy, there must be more to life than this, you're taken for granted, you look hideous, you must make people laugh so that they don't notice that you look hideous, you must look happy and content because why shouldn't you be, you are Beth, capable, reliable, down-to-earth, and of course, cuddly.

Dinner Party by Tracy Bloom was released September 21st, 2018 from Bookouture.
