Time for my bookish meme, and this week I’m a bit confused about which book to talk about. I’m reading four, and loving all of them. I guess I’ll choose the closest at hand, in the spirit of this meme.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly 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 day after Connolly kissed Sheba for the first time, he came to her hut. As soon as he entered, she stood up from her desk and ordered him to leave.
This book is all voice, the nasty narrator who you hate but at whose mercy you remain through the book as she destroys her ‘friend’ Sheba, or at least watches and helps as Sheba destroys herself. I found the book unpleasant but engrossing, as it tore apart prejudices and looked into psychological chasms with equal candor. I can’t believe I hadn’t picked it up earlier.
