Teaser Tuesdays #134 – April 4th: The Color Purple


TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme hosted at The Purple Booker. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

I’m probably the last person on earth to read this (modern) classic, but somehow I never had the chance to actually pick it up. Both the Beat The Backlist challenge and Reading Through The Centuries challenge are a great excuse to finally read The Color Purple by Alice Walker. I’ve only just started it, but I’ll be looking forward to be finding out why so many people seem to love this story.

My teaser (6%):

“I spend my wedding day running from the oldest boy. He twelve. His mama died in his arms and he don’t want to hear nothing bout no new one.”
