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!
Here’s my random teaser for Tuesday:
“Under normal circumstances, we bled together at the new moon, according to one of Mama’s schemes. In consultation with a lunar calendar, she’d pulled the blinds and left on nightlights until, through some sympathetic trick of hormones and her own iron will, all three of us had synched up our cycles to the light and the dark, to each other and to the sky. That was the way things used to be in the wild, Mama told us.” – p. 145
Can you guess from what title it’s from? No, problem. It’s a new release!
It’s Bone & Bread by Saleema Nawaz, published by House of Anansi, March 30, 2013.
