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 a teaser. I'm a slow reader, so you may get multiple teasers per book. Here's my second teaser from Knight's Fee:

"Well then, Englishman or Breton or whatever you be, and what is it that you're wanting?"

"Apples," Randal said. "A handful of apples for my knight."

She let out a squawk of laughter and set down her pail. "Sa, sa, it is only a boy after all! How old is your knight?"

"Two years older than I am," Randal told her with dignity.

She flung up her hands. "Does Henry of Coutances fight his wars with children, then?"

From Knight's Fee, by Rosemary Sutcliff, p 239

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.
