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!

"No, she realized, looking at her high old-fashioned bed, and the piles of books that sat on every step of the staircase, the adjustment to this new stage of life was not going to come from without. It was going to have to come from within."
p72, Friday Nights, by Joanna Trollop

I love the imagery of the piles of books on every staircase!

  10. Internal changes and books in one teaser have me wanting to look into this book further.

  11. I don’t think my TBR pile will recover from the teasers this week! So many amazing books, so little time. Hope you will stop by and comment on my Clockwork Prince teaser on http://EmmaMichaels.Blogspot.com !

  12. Oh yes, I enjoyed that book a lot, even though there are a couple of other Trollope books that I liked slightly more. But that's a great teaser.

    Meanwhile, my own teaser is at Bookishgal.
