I'm back - Teaser Tuesday

Home again after a lovely few days with our daughter and family. Celebrated the youngest grandson's 5th birthday and waved him off to his first day at school yesterday before leaving. The time went so quickly although confronting my google reader this morning was a bit daunting and made me feel as though I've been gone for weeks.

So I thought I'd ease myself back into the blogging gently with a Teaser Tuesday ....

... 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!

My Teaser

"Noora yawned again and stared up at the mountains, a disheveled carpet of gleaming old rocks and bright ,young shoots. She took it all in: unruly scrubs with tips bursting into tiny red flowers; fluffy, white dots on stout bushes; bizarre purple clusters that crowned stunted cacti."


The Sand Fish by Maha Gargash

 A novel from Dubai

'A fascinating window into a different culture - and an inspiring and unforgettable universal story of strength and self-reliance.'


  1. What a descriptive teaser -- I can only imagine what the entire book is like!

  2. Welcome back!

    That's an awesome teaser for sure! I love the imagery. Hope you're enjoying the book so far!

  3. Great teaser, and the cover looks nice, will look forward to the review to make up my mind :)

    And welcome back

  4. Beautiful description in those lines - I can almost picture it! Nice teaser.

    If you'd like, you can check out mine here.

  5. I haven't heard of this one, but the passage is beautiful.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog..yes I love historical fiction but will read other genres except for westerns...dislike them...your teaser sounds interesting...

  7. Thanks for dropping by and commenting.

    I thought it was lovely imagery too.

    CelticLady - westerns are probably the only genre I never read either.

  8. That passage is beautiful. I really hope you are enjoying this book. The synopsis sounds brilliant and sets high expectations in my mind - I have a soft spot for stories of 'strength and self-reliance'.
