Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. To participate, you're supposed to share two teaser sentences from a random page in the book you're currently reading.

Be sure to check out my current giveaway too!

Here's a teaser from the book I just finished this morning (review and giveaway coming soon!):
"Guilt at what he had done to his brother reflexively insinuated itself, but Cosam squashed his conscience as if it was nothing more than a little insect pestering him. Instead of listening to his conscience, he openly admired his handiwork. Instead of being ashamed of himself, he chose to be proud of himself."

~ Prologue (p.xiv) of Our Promised Land by Michael T. Darkow

And here's another teaser from the book I'll be starting today:
"Mawu told them she was telling her story so they would know why she couldn't go back to Louisiana, why she didn't feel the same pull they felt toward their children. She didn't live in the big house like Lizzie. Her children had not had special favors like Sweet's."

~ p42 of Wench by Dolen Perkins-Valdez

  2. So nice to have discovered your blog! Love the first teasers, the second seem a bit confusing, but that's the fun of it, isn't it? Ciao. A. (http://lunarossa-livingabroad.blogspot.com/2010/03/teaser-tuesday_16.html)

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I like your two-teasers although I'm more drawn to the quote from Wench. I'll have to look for it.
