Teaser Tuesdays: Crescent


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!

Crescent by Diana Abu-Jaber p. 46

"Most Arab men have always been enimnently proper and polite to her, filled with Old World propriety, so formal they seem almost not to see her but to see an outline captioned: Woman. Han, she's noticed, looks at her."

I have a feeling that as Sirine and Han get to know each other better, there will be some culture clashes, as Sirine has grown up in America.

I just read her newest book, Birds of Paradise, and absolutely loved it. Now I've added her other novels to my TBR list, including this one! The cover is beautiful and the teaser has me interested. Thanks for sharing! My teaser is here. And, if you're interested, my impressions of Birds of Paradise are here.

Nice teaser. I haven't read anything by her yet, but it looks like my kind of read. Thanks for your teaser.
