Teaser Tuesday, July 20 - The Secret Lives of Baba Segi's Wives

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 either in the comments below or on your own blog (give a link to your blog so we can check it out!)
  • 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 so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
This week's teaser:

"Don't get me wrong.  I don't hate Baba Segi; on the contrary, I have several reasons to be thankful to him."

p. 148, The Secret Lives of Baba Segi's Wives by Lola Shoneyin


  1. Looks interesting...here's mine: http://ticatattle.blogspot.com/2010/07/tuesday-teaser-watercolored-pearls.html

  2. Merry stood naked in the kitchen while Dora poured the last pot of hot water into the rusty tin tub.

    I ordered this based on your review. I've also added The Secret Lives of Baba Segi's Wives.

  3. Be sure to let me know what you think of both books when you're finished.
