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!
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.
