Teaser Tuesday #20: Canada Reads Series, Part 2 - The Illegal by Lawrence Hill

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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 (some times you need more than two for it to make sense).
  • 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

This week's teaser comes from The Illegal by Lawrence Hill

The Illegal is the second book I've picked up from the Canada Reads 2016 short list. I finished this book last night and it's definitely fitting this year's Canada Reads theme of "starting over".

"Not every run should cause pain. Some should just be to celebrate your working limbs, breathing lungs and beating heart." p16

"Parents could never be replaced. When they departed, they have left a hole that never went away." p209

You can also check out my Teaser Tuesday and book review posts for Bone & Bread by Saleema Nawaz.

What are you reading this week? Leave your teaser link below so I can check it out.


  1. I like both teasers. This book sounds good. My teaser this week comes from The Infamous Heir by Elizabeth Michels. Happy reading!

  2. Sounds like a very interesting book. Thanks for coming by my blog.

  3. Both great teasers. I'm playing today too at Beth Fish Reads.

  4. So true. I remember getting lost in just running and wishing I could go on and on:)

  5. I have yet to read a Lawrence Hill novel! I actually have The Book of Negroes on my shelf and I really should get to it soon! I hope that you are enjoying it and the other Canada Reads selections. :)
