Teaser Tuesday (3)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading (a wonderful blog that I have quietly stalked for some time). Participants share two random sentences from their current reads without including anything too spoilery.

My Tantalizing Teaser:

"He's always got a opinion does Nero, an he's real smart too. I figger if only we could unnerstand crow talk, we'd find he was tellin us a thing or two about the best way to fix a roof."
~ Unknown page on my Kindle, Blood Red Road by Moira Young

I can't wait to immerse myself more in this story. Saba is already an endearing, interesting narrator, a mixture of thoughtfulness and implied ruthlessness. The writing definitely takes getting used to - there are no quotations marks around dialogue and many intentional spelling and grammatical errors to reflect Saba's lack of education - but I don't find it too off-putting.


  1. What a great teaser. :) This is one of those books that has caught my interest.
