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!
Jalil never called Mariam this name. Jalil said she was his little flower. He was fond of sitting her on his laps and telling her stories, like the time he told her that Herat, the city where Mariam was born, in 1959, had once been the cradle of Persian culture, the home of writers, painters and Sufis.
"You couldn't stretch a leg there without poking a poet in the ass," he laughed.

There is always something lyrical in the way Khaled Hosseini writes. Whether it be about feelings or flowers...there is something about his writing that keeps me glued to the pages.
When I was reading Kite Runner by the same author, I found it extremely difficult to get into the story...there were somethings I didn't understand. But later on, I couldn't keep the book down. It has been one of my favorite books since then and there is no wonder I picked his 2nd book the same week. I feel a little scared to like an author, and the expectations are high. Will A Thousand Splendid Suns work for me... I will have to read and see, but meanwhile has anyone read this? And if so, have you liked it?
Thank You for answering!
Hope you all are having a great Tuesday!
