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 a teaser from Loving Lydia:

Her uncle smiled sadly at Alex, then returned his attention to his niece. "It is not the end of the world, Lydia. I have every faith that Lord Alexander will make a fine husband. Be happy that your life has been set."

From Loving Lydia, by Amy De Trempe, page 120

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.

From Janni Lee Simner's Bones of Faerie, p. 23..

"I kept to the center of the path, barely out of reach of the ragweed along its edges, but it wasn't the ragweed that worried me most."


"Even when the sun shone, a tree could take a grown man down if it had taste enough for blood."
