Teaser Tuesdays are a weekly book meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. To play along:
- 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!
I finished Joe Hill’s Horns over the weekend (review coming soon!) so no book memes for that. I’ve just started The Boys of my Youth by Jo Ann Beard, a collection of personal essays that I’m going to be counting towards the Women Unbound Challenge.
Through the glass of the back door, framed by my grandmother’s lace curtains, a face wearing a creature-feature mask. Black hair, forehead, two stunned eyes, and then the rest is blood. It looks like my dad.
(Despite what it sounds like, this isn’t a horror story! The collection is made up of creative non-fiction essays describing Beard’s life growing up in the Midwest. Yup, I’m trying a memoir again! Let’s hope I like it better than the last one.)
