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!
My current book is The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender. Ms. Bender likes really long sentences that would be a nightmare if your teacher asked you to diagram them. Instead of two sentences, I'm gonna give you one that I think shows the style and tone of the book.
"This cake that my mother had made just for me, her daughter, whom she loved so much I could see her clench her fists from overflow sometimes when I came home from school, and when she would hug me hello I could feel how inadequate the hug was for how much she wanted to give."
And if you read this book, I'd love to talk about it with you!
