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 from me. Here's my second teaser from The Winter Sea, by Susanna Kearsley:

'My father always says I like the sea so much because it's in my blood, because our ancestors were shipbuilders from Belfast, Northern Ireland. He doesn't mean it literally, but given what's been happening to me I wondered if you knew if there was such a thing,' I asked him, 'as genetic memory?'

His eyes, behind the spectacles, grew thoughtful. 'Could you have Sophia's memories, do you mean?'

(From The Winter Sea, 28% Kindle - this book has 500+ pages and I missed 2 nights of reading)

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.

He was slightly built, and of rather less than medium height. He had light brown hair, which waved naturally above a countenance which was pleasing without being in any way remarkable.

"The Foundling" by Georgette Heyer, pg. 3. I'm starting this book tonight.

Blue tapioca is delicious! I finally made some last night. Are you still enjoying "The Winter Sea"?

Oh, you're reading about Gilly and Harriet! Let me know what you think of Gideon. I fell in love with him in high school. :-)

Yes, I'm enjoying "The Winter Sea." Just a slow reader, but I like it!

I'm glad you like your blue tapioca. Now you can never go back. ;-)

Gilly is ripe for an adventure. I'll be meeting Gideon in the next chapter.

I need some new food coloring -- the stuff I had was paste, and tastes funny. I'm going to use some type of juice to color my next batch.

I think you'll really enjoy TWS when you get caught up in the goings-on in the past.

I'm sorry your tapioca didn't turn out well. I use McCormick Food Color & Egg Dye and it doesn't affect the flavor.
