Teaser Tuesdays 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 (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!

    MMy teaser:

    “‘That’s it, Matilda.  Now you know something no one else on this whole island knows.'”

    From Mister Pip by Lloyd Jones.  It was hard to find two lines in the book that were really attention-grabbing.  These are somewhat mediocre, but they’ll do.

    Mrs. DallowayAnother:

    “It was like running one’s face against a granite wall in the darkness.  It was shocking; it was horrible!”

    From Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf.  Now that’s better.


    To play along with your own teaser, post your link or share you teaser in the comments over at Should Be Reading.  And share your links with me, too.  I’d love to read your teasers!
