Teaser Tuesday

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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
My Tuesday teaser today is from The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot:

"Bobbette snapped. 'What supplier? Who's got cells from my mother-in-law?' It was like a nightmare. She'd read in the paper about the syphilis study at Tuskegee, which had just been stopped by the government after forty years, and now here was Gardenia's brother-in-law, saying Hopkins had part of Henrietta alive and scientists everywhere were doing research on her and the family had no idea.' - page 180


  1. interesting and well scary. Someone is doing experiments without people's permission. Hope it's a good read!!!

    Happy Teaser Tuesday

  2. Oh, my, what an intriguing story this must be! Thanks for sharing the tempting teaser....

    Here's MY TT POST

  3. Hi KC. Great pick on the book...it was a feature for a few months at my favorite bookstore on Earth--The Tattered Cover here in Denver. Alas, I have not read it yet.

    I wanted to stop by and say thank you for following my blog and joining in my contest. I've now followed you as well and I look forward to reading your future posts!

  4. That book sounds very intriguing.

    Thanks for stopping by Starting the Next Chapter. I have to say that I didn't enjoy Sense & Sensibility & Sea Monsters. I wrote a review on it a couple of weeks ago on my blog with all of the details as to why, but suffice it to say that I didn't find it to be well-done. P&P&Z was a bit better, just very silly.

  5. I hope that you are enjoying your book. Here is my Teaser For Tuesday.

  6. Thanks for stopping by beltwayliterature earlier today. Your teaser sounds interesting! Here's mine: http://beltwayliterature.com/2011/03/22/teaser-tuesday-another-capital-tease/
