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!

"Fiona had heard it from Joe, who'd heard it from a friend who'd placed bets on him and won. It explained his sudden propensity for coming home with black eyes, which he always put down to 'just lads scrapping.'"
p65, The Tea Rose, by Jennifer Donnelly

  4. I have one of the Rose series books for review (out of series, of course, so I'm hoping I'll be OK without having read the prior books). This sounds interesting - I wonder where the black eyes are coming from? Thanks for sharing your teaser!
