Tuesday Teasers: Historical Fiction and a Memoir


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should  Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought  I  would play for fun! Just do the following
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page (well, we cheat and choose specific ones)
  • 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can  add the book to their TBR  Lists  if they  like your teaser.   

Gerard's:
They shaved her head. She was a beautiful little girl and they shaved her head! Who could do that?!
From page 3 of To Sing Frogs, A memoir by John M. Simmons. (A true story about family, friends, life, and other things that don't make sense) My review will post on Wednesday.

Karen's:
Fresh air, sunshine, a purring kitten, and flowers to plant. Jane smiled as she realized she was following Miss Dawson's example. Listing thankfuls.
From page 164 of The Key on The Quilt--The Quilt Chronicles by Stephanie Grace Whitson. (Historical fiction)  My review should be up Thursday.


Check out our Giveaway to U.S. residents.

Happy Reading!

    1. The guy who brought in the kittens to the women in prison won me over! When Jane was finally released, she decided to get a kitten too!
