Teaser Tuesday #TuesdayBookBlog

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two or three “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!

Smoke & Gold

This week’s teaser passage comes from Smoke and Gold by Pauline Suett Barbieri.

“there were only two books in our house; the rent book and the funeral book. One for the living and one for the dead.”

“there was only one I really loved, one I really wanted to own- the “Wind in the Willows”.  So much so that having no money to buy the book, I copied the whole thing out in longhand.  This endeavour filled three, one-inch thick exercise books, which I stole from “Woolies”.

I will be reviewing this book next week.

  1. I was also intrigued enough to turn to Goodreads for this one and although probably not one I shall be rushing out to buy, when I am in the mood for a good literary fiction read, I shall know where to turn.

    One of my favourite childhood books was ‘The Wind In The Willows’ and it was also one of the first I owned outright, rather than being borrowed from the library, where I almost camped out, in my thirst to read as many books as possible.

    Thanks for sharing your lines and have a good week 🙂
