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. This is one of those weeks. So here's a second excerpt from The Prince and the Pilgrim, by Mary Stewart:

This time it was she who put out a hand. "No. Please stay. Why don't you tell me about it, this quest of yours that troubles you so much."

From The Prince and the Pilgrim, by Mary Stewart, p 254

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!

From Death of Poison Pen by M.C.Beaton

1. "This was obviously a world where no one carried anyone's luggage, thought Jenny as she struggled up the wooden staircase after Mrs. Dunne."

2. "In front of the fireplace, filled with orange crepe paper in the shape of a fan, stood a one-bar heater."
