Teaser Tuesday: Group Post

As part of a weekly feature, The Page Turners are here to share a piece of what we’re currently reading. Anyone can participate! 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, page number & author, too, so that other readers can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

“It’s clear as an unflawed diamond that I fucked up big-time by dropping my ass out of school.  There was jobs out there for people without a drop of experience and no high school, but shit, them motherfuckas worked twice as hard and made less than half the money. “

pg. 101, Real Wifeys on the Grind by Meesha Mink – Notorious Spinks

“She called Ma a whore. Pow! Ma sucker punched Chicki, knocking her to the ground, and Ma couldn’t bend over with her pregnant stomach and all, so she let Chickie get up and then grabbed her by the hair and slammed her head against the brick wall.”

pg. 104, All Souls by Michael Patrick MacDonald – Alex

“He stood with his knees slightly bent, his lips partly open, his shoulders stooped; and his eyes held a look that went only to the surface of things. There was an organic conviction in him that this was the way white folks wanted him to be when in their presence; none had ever told him that in so many words, but their manner had made him feel that they did.”

pg. 48, Native Son by Richard Wright  – Nakia

  1. I was supposed to have something up here, but I haven’t started a new book yet! I should have something for next Tuesday. Everybody looks like they have some good reads!

  2. Through Pilar’s intersession with one of her clients, Dora now worked for bona-fide quality white folk. Despite being Blanche’s relations, Dora had not been invited to any good colored Charleston homes yet.

    • I’m going to force myself to read “Some Sing, Some Cry”. The thickness of it is so intimidating though…as is Native Son. I really dont think I’ll be able to finish it. lol

  3. How do the other book teasers stand a chance next to Richard Wright?! My teaser: http://naysue.wordpress.com/2011/02/01/teaser-tuesday-a-piece-of-cake/
