Teaser Tuesday 1/12

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!
  • Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!
From The Blood of Flowers by Anita Amirrezvani:
Burlap bags overflowed with mint, dill, coriander, dried lemon, turmeric, saffron, and many spices I didn't recognize. I distinguished the flowery yet bitter odor of fenugreek, which set my mouth watering for a lamb stew, for we had not tasted meat in many months.
Blood of Flowers is my next book club book.

  10. I love that teaser! It makes me think of a book I'm just starting and plan to review: "The Spice Necklace," by Ann Vanderhoof. So your teaser definitely makes me interested.
