Teaser Tuesdays (Apr.9)

April 9, 2013

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!

“Then another morning…and another. One night she gave my mother a sheet of paper darkened with question marks, nothing else. ”

~ p.70, “Ru: A Novel” by Kim Thúy
