Teaser Tuesdays #2

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Title: My Fight/Your Fight
Author: Ronda Rousey (Author), Maria Burns Ortiz (Contributor)

Here are my two teasers from Chapter One, Why I Fight (Loc 124 on Kindle eBook):
"To be a fighter, you have to be passionate. I have so much passion, it’s hard to hold it all in. That passion escapes as tears from my eyes, sweat from my pores, blood from my veins."
"I can take a hit without batting an eyelash, but I will burst into tears if a sad song comes on the radio. I am vulnerable; that’s why I fight."
My Thoughts:
This book was just released today and I purchased the Kindle book as soon as I woke up. Ronda Rousey has been such a huge inspiration for me since she hit the UFC Octagon in 2013. I've only read the first few chapters of this book and it's so AMAZING already. I only stopped reading to write this post. I'll have a full review up once I'm done.

Have a great Tuesday! 


  1. I'd like to know more about this book. Although I generally am not interested in boxing or wrestling, it sounds like this book has an interesting main character.
    My Tuesday post features THE OTHER SIDE OF HEARTACHE.

    1. The book is a memoir. Ronda Rousey is an MMA champion and more recently an actress. I've enjoyed what I've read so far, but I'm also a huge fan. What I've liked the most is the impact that her mother has had on her life and successes thus far. Thanks for commenting!

  2. that's a . . . normal reason to fight? To become less vulnerable?

    1. Thanks for stopping by! Your book sounds really intriguing. I'm really into zombie books/stories, I'll have to check it out.
