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!
I am reading The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz, as part of my Award-Winning Books Reading Challenge. Let my random page be where I inserted my coffee and sandwich receipt during my reading time earlier:
She is sixteen and her skin is the darkness before the black, the plum of the day’s last light, her breasts like sunsets trapped beneath her skin, but for all her youth and beauty she has a sour distrusting expression that only dissolves under the weight of immense pleasure. Her dreams are spare, lack the propulsion of a mission, her ambition is without traction.
– page 171, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz [paperback copy]
Almost halfway done with it and I can already say that this is a very interesting novel.
