Teaser Tuesdays – El Dorado by Dorothy Porter


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. For my first Teaser Tuesday I share the beautiful verse novel Eldorado by Dorothy Porter.

Anyone can play along with Teaser Tuesdays! 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!

“Bill shudders –
and thinks of Caitlin
lying sweet
and quiet
in a shallow grave
with a gold print thumb print
pressed tenderly
on her dead face.

Does El Dorado dote
on his cherished
so they become
not murdered children –
but his kids?”

from El Dorado by Dorothy Porter

    • True, it was a slightly dark teaser this week, but a brilliant book all the same. I’m planning my next read to be a little chirpier, so I’m sure next week’s teaser will be more fun.
