Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
Grab your current read.
Open to a random page.
Share two “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.
Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences, that give away too much about the book.
Remember to share the title and author too.
Head on over to ‘should be reading’ and leave a link to your post, so that others can share it.
My “teaser” for Tuesday 5th October 2010:
‘The Girls’ by Lori Lansens
“I listened to my uncle sniff, and exhale, and I knew he was crying, as men do, with hush and humiliation”
“There’s the photograph of Ruby in her oversize navy blouse (which she wore in solidarity) and me in my stretched black pants and lime-green sweater set (from the plus-size department rather than maternity) hugging Nonna at her place on New Year’s Day”
I am about half way through this book and so far it has been a profoundly moving and emotional read.
Update October 16th 2010 – Full synopsis, author biography and my personal thoughts about this book, are now available, here.
