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 Powder and Patch, by Georgette Heyer:

"Henri, it is iniquitous! It is not a public exhibition that I engage in! One would say we were gladiators."

"Reste tranquille," grinned De Vangrisse. "We are all backing you, mon petite."

"I trust you'll not forget to inform His Majesty of the rendezvous," said Philip, resorting to biting sarcasm. "And have you engaged a fiddler to enliven the meeting?"

From Powder and Patch, p 89

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.

I've seen so many young men over the years who think they're running at other young men.
They are not.
They're running at me.
