A fun weekly meme Hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading
where readers share the teasers sentences from their current reads. This week, I’m reading two books, “The Historian
” by Elizabeth Kostova and “My Sister’s Keeper
” by Jodi Picoult.
The Historian: Propelled by the discovery of an ancient book and letters, a young woman plunges into a labyrinth where the secrets of her family’s past connect to an inconceivable evil Vlad the Impaler.
He had a large family impaled and many of his people buried naked up to the navel and shot at. Some he had roasted and then flayed. The Historian, pg. 46
My Sister’s Keeper: a novel by Jodi Picoult. Creating another baby, specifically design to save her sister. But the baby, now 13 yo, is suing her parents for the rights to her own body.
“What are you saying Brian? That some man in a suit whom you’ve never met would be able to explain Anna better than her own mother?” Sara, My Sister’s Keeper, pg. 178
