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.

Actually I'm going to share two teasers with you from the same book today. Both are from The Winter Sea, by Susanna Kearsley. The narrator of this story is an author with whom I immediately bonded when she said:

I'd never been a fast writer, and five hundred words in one day was, to me, a good effort. A thousand words left me ecstatic. (9% Kindle version)

Yes! That is so me! :-)

Okay, now here's a teaser for non-writer readers.

Still, you couldn't just remember something if you hadn't had it in your memory to begin with.

Could you?

(From The Winter Sea, 19% Kindle version)

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 "The Girl on the Cliff," by Lucinda Riley, page81:

"After that initial meeting, no longer did Mary spend her afternoon off wandering aimlessly along the cliffs near the house."

"And, sometimes, they simply didn't talk at all."

Hmm, could be companionable...or distant?
