Teaser Tuesday~~The Quickening by, Michelle Hoover

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish 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!

The Quickening by, Michelle Hoover This is a long teaser but I wanted to give a better feel than just one line.
Page 8-I had no sisters to speak of. Had only my mother now and three brothers, gone off to have families of their own. Though I'd tried for friendship, their wives never cared much for the youngest sister who worked with the men in the barn. But women had never liked the look of me. Saw something fierce in my size and roughness. Mary seemed no different. That grimace of hers, it was just the start.


  1. Wonderful teaser and it sounds like a book I would enjoy. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/06/teaser-tuesdays-unspeakable.html

  7. Great teaser - I got a real sense of the book's rustic feel.
