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 of teaser. I'm a slow reader, so you may get multiple teasers per book. Here's my first teaser from The Black Moth:

"I fail to understand. You informed me that the Earl left all to Richard?"

"He changed his will, Tracy!"

"He--changed--his--will! Then, my dear, must you have played your cards very badly!"

From The Black Moth, by Georgette Heyer, p 49

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've just finished reading The Actor and the Housewife, by Shannon Hale.
Teaser is on Pg. 76.
"Good boy. Now each time you take the Lord's name in vain, flick yourself again."
"Why would calling on the Lord's name ever be in vain if he were really there to listen?"
"Also you should flick yourself each time you're obnoxious."
"Now you've gone too far. I'd be too bruised to show my face on camera."
