Teaser Tuesday - Please Look After Mom by Kyung-Sook Shin

After a long long hiatus, I went to BookOff, and surprisingly, found quite a lot of books that I wanted to buy. Thankfully, I managed to restrain myself, although I couldn't help buying a copy of Please Look After Mom. I have this impression that I've heard lots of good things about it, and it's only 105yen! I can definitely afford to gamble on this book.

So, Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB of ShouldBeReading. To take part, all you have to do is share a two-sentence teaser from whatever you're reading. My teaser this week is:

"Bright light bounced off the roof and the yard, but the young woman's expression was dark. She looked up at the clear autumn sky once in a while, craning her neck."

This sounds like an interesting novel! I can't wait to share my review once I'm done!

What is your teaser this week?


  1. Great teaser. Love the cover too! Hope you enjoyed reading it.

  3. That is a beautiful cover! Something I'd pick up, for sure. My teaser is a bit different this week - news on an upcoming Jack Reacher short story.http://writenotereviews.wordpress.com/2013/06/18/teaser-tuesday-lee-childs-high-heat/

  7. Really cool cover. Happy reading.


  8. Nice description in your teaser, and I love the book's cover.
    My Teaser is from THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS.

  9. The book is beautifully written with a wonderful translation from the Korean by Chi-Young Kim. The translation helps the book flow flawlessly. The book is a gem. With little action, there is deep characterization and lives are examined deeply. This is a brilliant book on many levels and from many perspectives.
