Teaser Tuesdays


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
--Grab your current read
--Open to a random page
--share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
Be sure 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

"Brenda paused. 'I don't put it on my CV. It's not a nice quality. But I lip-read. I heard you telling your mother.'
p98, Quentins, by Maeve Binchy

I've just started this and true to form I think it's going to be unputdownable. Binchy has introduced all the characters and now we're getting to the next layer of everyone's stories and hidden secrets!

  6. I've read and enjoyed Binchy in the past but haven't read this one. Actually I haven't heard of this one. The teaser sounds good so I hope the rest is too.

  11. I've never read Binchy, but a friend just shared a whole stack of her books with me. I was unsure at first, but after reading your post and all the comments now I'm looking forward to digging into them!!
