Teaser Tuesday's - gods in Alabama by Joshilyn Jackson

Teaser Tuesday's is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. To play along, just do the following:

- Grab your current read

- Open to a random page

- Share two “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 list if they like your teaser.

My teaser this week is from page 16 of Joshilyn Jackson's gods in Alabama:

"I'm asking you to introduce me to your family.  That's all.  I'm asking for a commitment, Lena.  We've been together two years now.

  1. That does seem a long time not to meet her family--perhaps she's ashamed of them or they're all dead? Hmm.

  2. Maybe she's ashamed of him. Maybe he's just a place holder. Here's Mine

  4. I like Paulita's comment about him possibly being a place holder. One wonders: is there any future in the relationship.

    Here's My teaser for the new Mark Helprin book:
