Teaser Tuesdays


Teaser Tuesdays

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 Secret Life of Words by Henry Hitchings, p. 104-105
"In Britain and America the fruit's [tomato] popularity was slow to rise, because of its less than inviting kinship with deadly nightshade. Another word acquired via Spanish is avocado, which, thanks to its shape, takes its name from the Nahuatl for a testicle."
