Teaser Tuesdays - March 2

  
Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page. Post two (or more) sentences from that page, along with the title and author. Don’t give anything vital away!

" As a child, I would turn to the skinny 'V' section of Webster's and study the many words that referred to Mama. There was "vivid." which meant "full of life; bright; intense." And "vivify" which meant " to give life or to make more lively."
There were "vivace," "viva," "vivacious,"vivacity," "vivarium." and "viva voce". Mama was the source of all these words. She was also the reason for the phrase "Vive le roi" ( which she told us meant " Long live Vivi the Queen!"). All these definitions had to do with life, like Mama herself "
This is a long teaser but it was such a lovely paragraph that I wanted to share  it with you all. I'm about 55 pages into Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood which has been quite good so far. 

But I'm more excited and am feverishly turning page after page of Stieg Larsson's much-hyped The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.  The 350 odd pages that I've read have been so very thrilling  and the best, I guess, is yet to come!

That was my book club's "summer read" quite a few years ago! Nice quote.

I think Stieg Larsson books have the capacity to keep you up all night. I am still waiting for the third book to be released here. :)

Is it a YA book? the title and cover page looks like that !

Kals said...

@Bedazzled - Nope, it's not a YA book. More like 'women's fiction'sort of label.
