Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly book 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!
Page 44 (Large Print Edition) of Shanghai Girls by Lisa See...
"Coming here is ugly and hardly auspicious, like stepping into the past, which is precisely what Baba wants us to do with these marriage. Still, May and I have come, obedient as dogs, stupid as water buffalo."

I'm reading this for a book club that my friend started two weeks ago. So far, I've only finished about ten percent of the book. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet, but perhaps I'll update as I read more. If you've read it, let me know your thoughts (without giving away too much, of course.) Have a great week!


Never miss a post!

  12. I've had my eye on this book for some time - writing style sounds very frank, perhaps refreshingly so...
