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 page I read before I post my teaser. As I warned you, I'm a slow reader, so sometimes I'll be sharing teasers from the same book over multiple Tuesdays.

"With each meeting their attachment grows deeper, no doubt. Does she profess herself to be in love with him still? And does he reciprocate this sentiment openly to her? Then as time passes it becomes yet more inevitable that an elopement will be the obvious conclusion of the matter."

Easterfield, by Anna Jones Buttimore, p 141

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!

k so this is Johanna Lindsey's No Choice But Seduction pg 61-62

A fortune is a fortune. I'm not putting a price on my daughter's life.

No offense Yank but I've heard you're a bit of a hothead.

and of course I love Lindsey this is a reread for me and I'm enjoying it just a much the second time around

I love it, Meandi! To me, reading "old favorites" is like spending time with a familiar and beloved friend. I can see you feel the same way. Thanks for sharing a favorite read with us!
