Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading

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!

In the Sanctuary of Outcasts by Neil White
"As I walked through the kitchen, I saw an inmate stirring a huge pot of soup. He noticed the markers and yelled, "'Write big 'cause them lepers can't see worth a shit!'"p. 18

Neil White has to go to white-collar Federal Prison, and the prison he ends up at is also the last leper colony in the U.S.

This teaser has really peaked my interest. Where is it taking place -- in Moloka'i?

Carin Siegfried said...

actually Whitney, it's in Louisiana. But I know what you're talking about! A friend recently read Molokai and highly recommended it. I read The Colony when my bookclub read Molokai (which is a nonfiction book about the island of Molokai) but I wasn't able to get around to the novel.

You have kind of piqued my interest too. I am adding this to my tbr pile.

Here is my Tuesday teaser done differently!

Now that's the kind of teaser that makes you want to go look up the book! Check out my teaser when you have a chance!

Oh, I like that teaser -- nice pick! That definitely brings me into it!

Beth F said...

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

What an intriguing combination -- prison and leper colony. Kind of barbaric too. But the teaser certainly makes you want to know what's going to happen there. Great choice!

My own teaser is at Bookishgal.

This teaser really caught my attention -- so I checked, and it's on the shelf at the library! I think I'll bring this one home. :)
