Teaser Tuesdays - August 30, 2011

Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along; you don't have to be a blogger! 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!

Next up on my hard copy reading:




My teaser this week: 

The Sweetness of Tears by Nafisa Haji
I watched them as they picked through the garbage for food and things they might barter, both of them golden-haired, a sign of beauty when it wasn't one of malnutrition.  These kinds of scenes were so commonplace that to remark on them feels strange.

- page 214 (ARC), The Sweetness of Tears by Nafisa Haji (The Book Depository / Amazon)

From the Goodreads description:

A story of forbidden love and familial dysfunction that interweaves multiple generational and cultural viewpoints, The Sweetness of Tears is a powerful reminder of the ties that bind us, the choices that divide us, and the universal joys and tragedies that shape us all.



As I'm writing this to post, I haven't started reading it yet, but that teaser makes me think I'm in for some tears of my own.

Feel free to leave your teaser or link to it in the comments section; I find that I always end up adding to my to-buy list when I visit!

  3. That sounds like a powerful read. I like family dramas and stories about forbidden love so I may have to check it out. Will look for your review.

Comments make me feel all squishy happy inside, so drop a line if you see or read something interesting! PLEASE don't leave links to your blog or page unless the post you're replying to specifically asks you to leave a link!
Sorry that I had to re-enable word verification, but without it, there was far too much spam coming in - the only other option would have been to require only registered (Google, OpenID, etc.) comments, which might require you, the commenter, to go through even MORE steps just to comment!
