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!
First, I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith:
"It is Midsummer Day -- and as beautiful as its name. I am writing in the attic; I chose it because one can see Belmotte from the window" (chapter 12, page 199)
Now, a book I'm going to start today on lunch break; Girl in a Blue Dress by Gaynor Arnold:
"My husband's funeral is today. And I'm sitting here alone in my upstairs room while half of London follows him to his grave." (chapter 1, page 1)"
And lastly, The Bedside Book of Beast: A Wildlife Miscellany by Graeme Gibson:
"In the preceding section on hunting I merely touched on that moment of eye contact between wold and prey, a moment which seemed to be visibly decisive. Here are hunting wolves doing many inexplicable things (to the human eye). (in The Conversation of Death, page 19)
