Teaser Tuesday 100316

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!


The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver

In the Kitchen the stores burn hotter than the stove. Perpetua says Senora Frida went up to San Miguel Regla yesteday, on the excuse that she needed to give some money to the Landeros family for taking Lev in their house.

pg. 179



I am really enjoying this book. It is set partly in Mexico and partly in the US and follow the life of a boy/man from the 1930s. It is written kind of a like a diary but better (and I love when books are written in a quirky manner). :)

I like Kingsolver and have read mixed reviews of this one, but it sounds like you're really enjoying it. This cover is much prettier than the US cover!

A lot of people have recommended The Poisonwood Bible in particular but I haven't read any Kingsolver yet. Glad you're enjoying it!
