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 third teaser from These Old Shades:

"Well, ma mie, what now?"

"Now it is just as it used to be," Léonie said wistfully, and sat down on a low stool beside the Duke's chair.

His Grace poured out a glass of wine, and looked down at Léonie with a questioning lift to his brows.

Léonie clasped her hands about her knees, and stared deep into the fire.

From These Old Shades, by Georgette Heyer, p 241

(Actually, I finished this book Monday night. I probably could have finished sooner, but I kept re-reading my favorite parts over and over again. :-) I haven't picked my next read yet, so that's why you get a third teaser from this one.)

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.

Great teaser! Thanks for sharing this one. Mine is from a non-fiction book I just finished by author Jeff Herten, M.D., called, "The Sobering Truth." The author writes about his own battle with alcoholism. I found it to be a highly engaging read that combines medical knowledge with case studies and personal exploits.

Thank you for sharing your current read, Audrey. "The Sobering Truth" sounds like an excellent book!
