I had barely made it into my bed before the sun rose, and I was tired - bone tired, as Amma would say. Now I was waiting for Link on the corner.
p. 176 ARC
I know we are suppose to do a random quote, but I picked this for a specific reason. One day I was really tired and I said that I was bone tired. My husband claimed that "bone tired" was not actually an expression and I had made it up. But I said that it was because sometimes you are tired to the bone and therefore you are bone tired. Anyway, when I saw it in this book I ran to find him and read it to him. So there! HA!
Sounds like an interesting book - love the teaser :)ReplyDelete
Very interesting teaser! I can't wait to pick this one upReplyDelete
Great teaser. I too am bone tired, but I think for different reasons. ;)ReplyDelete
Great teaser! I can't wait to read this book. My teaser is here.ReplyDelete
That's such a good phrase, too. You can just feel how tired s/he is.ReplyDelete
Ah yes, I love it when that happens. Although I'm usually the one getting told (seriously, should "satisfiable" be a word?)ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!
I'm really looking forward to reading this book. Of course there is a "Bone tired", just like there is a "Dog tired". I don't know why but there just is heh.ReplyDelete
Good tease. I especially like the back story about bone tired.ReplyDelete
Wow, I can't imagine anybody not having heard that expression before. It's nice that you actually found it in print. Good teaser!ReplyDelete
Ohhh I have about 100 pages left.. It is one of my favorite books of the year!ReplyDelete
Good teaser pick - - love the cover!ReplyDelete
I've always heard of "bone tired" but maybe it's a southern thing?
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
good for you! It's always nice to be right. great teaser too. I always pick my teaser. I don't like to look ahead in a book and I love to post something I've already read. So as I read I watch for the sentences I'm going to post. If you want to wander down my road I’m home.ReplyDelete
Great teaser - I've seen this book before, but now I need to check it out.ReplyDelete
I've used "bone tired" before so it's definitely an expression.
Niw I will use the phrase "bone tired".ReplyDelete
Here is mine:
love the reason why you picked it. I think that's fine. Thanks for stopping by today.ReplyDelete
Great reason to pick the teaser!ReplyDelete
Great teaser! I can sympathize with 'bone tired' some days! And of course it's a legitimate saying...glad you found some proof to back you up. :) I love that one of the characters is named Link! I have a younger brother named Lincoln, and I think it's one of the best names ever.ReplyDelete
And after all that...thanks for coming by my blog earlier!
Great teaser and fun reason for choosing it. My teaser is here.ReplyDelete
Your reasoning behind picking this comment made me laugh :) Great teaser!ReplyDelete

Oh I would be shoving that in my husband's face, "See! I told you!!! HAH!" :)ReplyDelete
And I've heard of bone tired before. It's when you're so tired, your bones ache!

I would like to thank everyone for agreeing with me. I love it when people do that.ReplyDelete
Maybe it's b/c my husband is a Yankee. It could be a southern thang.
I am bone tired right now. You deserve a dinner out! I am curious about this book. Waiting for your thoughts/ReplyDelete
I have had that feeling a few times in the past couple of weeks. Not a fun feeling.ReplyDelete
I've used bone tired. Isn't is nice when you feel vindicated? For me, it makes up for he times when I am so wrong ;)ReplyDelete
Hey! I gave you an award!ReplyDelete
