Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. 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!
Here are my teasers for this week:
The New York Times refers to ours as a “genealogy-crazed era.” Surprisingly genealogy stories involving celebrities make headlines: Barack Obama and Sarah Palin are distant cousins; Emma Watson, star of the Harry Potter movies, is related to an actual sixteenth-century witch; a white supremacist learns – on a television talk show – that he is 14 percent black.
