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 Nonesuch, by Georgette Heyer:

She stared up at [Sir Waldo] incredulously. "But--but don't you think I'm beautiful?"

"Are you trying to warn me, ma'am, that Sir Waldo is a libertine?" asked Ancilla bluntly.

"Oh, good gracious! No!" exclaimed Mrs Chartley. "You must not think--my dear, I beg you won't say that I said that! No doubt he has had his--shall we say his adventures?--but pray don't imagine that I suspect him of--of--"

"Offering me a carte blanche? That, I believe, is the term, is it not?"

(From The Nonesuch, p 209)

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.
