Teaser Tuesday, April 27

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:

"In a rare confluence of his black nationalism and her incipient feminism, my parents named me after Ida B. Wells Barnett, pioneering journalist and tireless anti-lynching activist.  Although I'm just Ida in the outside world, everybody in West End, which is a world of its own, still calls me Ida B."

p. 12, Till You Hear from Me by Pearl Cleage

  1. After a long while, the tears stopped coming but Nannie kept rocking me until I fell asleep. When I woke up the next morning, I felt different. Not better, just different. Lighter maybe. Relieved that I didn.t have to go through another day waiting for night to fall so I could let out a little more pain.
