Teaser Tuesday

April 21, 2009

teasertuesdays2 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 (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! ;)

My teaser today is from The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver:

“It’s probably a good thing. I was so tired, and of course I was not in the habit anyway of remembering every minute where I had put down a child, and I think if it had not been stuck to me I might have lost it while I was messing with the car and moving stuff into the little end room of the Broken Arrow.” p. 22

Happy Tuesday everyone!

      It does sound ominous, but I didn’t mean it to! I’ve never read Kingsolver before but I have to say I’m loving this one!

    Great idea!! Well I’d like to recommend to you The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson…

    Sadly I don’t have the book to hand (as my grandma’s reading it!!) but all I can say is it’s amazing, truly a beautiful book. Please google/amazon it!! 🙂
