Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB ofShould 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!  
 Makes Me Wanna Holler by Nathan McCall

p. 17
It is difficult sometimes to pinpoint defining moments in a life.  But I'm certain that period marked my realization of something it seemed white folks had been trying to get across to me for most of my young life--that there were two distinct worlds in America, and a different set of rules for each:  The white one was full of the possibilities of life.  The dark one was just that--dark and limited.

 Head Bangers by Zane

p. 34
I decided to get super freaky and pulled my dress up around my waist, then sat down on the bench in the booth, lay back and raised my legs all the way up so that my ankles were on either side of my head.  He got on his knees behind me and held my ass up with one hand and moved the crotch of my red lace thongs to the side with the other one.  Then he commenced to eating his pie in the sky.  Let's just say the brother had a serious sweet tooth.
