Teaser Tuesday #4

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! See the rules at the end of this post.

First of all the teaser of the week :

(...) "What would you like?"
"A skinny decaf latte."
This is a ridiculous form of coffee, but I did not point it out.   (...)

This teaser comes from a one of my current reads, The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion.  Based on the synopsis alone, this is a book I wouldn't have picked up on my own as I am not into love and romance novels.  One of the groups I am participating in over at Goodreads however, picked this one as the monthly read and that's how I ended up downloading this book to my e-reader.  And frankly, despite my apprehensions, I quite like it. So even if you're not the love and romance type, give it a try anyway :o) Stay tuned for the review once I finish it.

     Add on Goodreads
An international sensation, this hilarious, feel-good novel is narrated by an oddly charming and socially challenged genetics professor on an unusual quest: to find out if he is capable of true love.
Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date. He is a man who can count all his friends on the fingers of one hand, whose lifelong difficulty with social rituals has convinced him that he is simply not wired for romance. So when an acquaintance informs him that he would make a “wonderful” husband, his first reaction is shock. Yet he must concede to the statistical probability that there is someone for everyone, and he embarks upon The Wife Project. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which he approaches all things, Don sets out to find the perfect partner. She will be punctual and logical—most definitely not a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver.
Yet Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also beguiling, fiery, intelligent—and on a quest of her own. She is looking for her biological father, a search that a certain DNA expert might be able to help her with. Don's Wife Project takes a back burner to the Father Project and an unlikely relationship blooms, forcing the scientifically minded geneticist to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie—and the realization that love is not always what looks good on paper.
The Rosie Project is a moving and hilarious novel for anyone who has ever tenaciously gone after life or love in the face of overwhelming challenges.
