Teaser Tuesdays

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!
Literary Marie's Tuesday Teaser:

"Over the course of six decades, some six million black southerners left the land of their forefathers and fanned out across the country for an uncertain existence in nearly every corner of America. The Great Migration would become a turning point in history."

~ p. 16, The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson


  1. Ooooooooooo! I want to read this book. My damn library still has it on 7-day check out. I guess I'll buy it soon.

  2. Sounds interesting!

  4. Thanks Kavyen. I thought this teaser would be appropriate for Black History Month. Thanks for subscribing.

    Sunny, it is an interesting read so far.

    Spinks, my library had a long wait for this book as well. I broke down and bought the eBook. It's educational and a good addition to my e-library.
