Tuesday Teaser

Tuesday Teaser is a weekly bookish meme (rhymes with “cream"), hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. (I’ve borrowed it from LDS Women’s Book Review.) Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share at least 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!

I’m adapting the rules slightly: I’ll be quoting some random lines from the last chapter I read before I post my teaser. I'm a slow reader, so you may get multiple teasers per book. (Actually, I would have been finished with this book by now, but I went on a writers retreat and instead of reading while I was there, I decided to--WRITE!) Here's my third teaser from Friday's Child:

"You're foxed. You ain't going to Bath."

"Yes, I am. Came to tell you. Taken a fancy to go with you."

Sherry stared at [Ferdy] narrowly, holding up the candle he was carrying. "Why?" he asked.

"Fond of you, Sherry. Don't know why, but there it is. Always was. If you go to Bath, I'll go to Bath."

"Now I know you're foxed!" said Sherry, quite disgusted.

From Friday's Child, by Georgette Heyer, p 386

If you'd like to share a Teaser from a book you're currently reading, I'd love you to do so in the comment section. And you don't even have to share it on a Tuesday! Be sure to include the title, author, and page number in case others would like to check out the book you're reading, too.

I unfortunately don't have a 'current reading book'. I just moved and haven't visited the library yet. :( But, the random book I pulled out is 'Just Ella' By: Margaret Peterson Haddix

pg 104: "I did what was expected of me then. I fainted."

pg 105: "Mary must have been spying on my room."

Hi Naomi!

I love the quote from p 104. Who could not want to keep reading after a line like that? I'll have to take a look at "Just Ella"! Thanks!
