Teaser Tuesday: Blood Brothers & Centuries of June



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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!    
    Hiding the vehicle in the shrubbery, he then collected the shotgun from the back and, securing it tight under his arm, he proceeded up the bank; ducking and diving so as not to be seen. On foot he moved with speed and cunning; like the hunter after its prey.
    ~ Blood Brothers by Josephine Cox, pg. 181
     


On a hot night in June, I left the baby with a neighbor and found Harchard by the Place Conga and together we went to a darker part of town where an empty stables stood and no eyes could profane the ceremony. Two women bound me in strips of purple cloth and put sandals on my feet, and I entered the cell with twenty others, men and women both.

~ Centuries of June by Keith Donohue, pg. 171
