Teaser Tuesday

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! 
My teasers

From Three Tales by Gustave Flaubert:
"The Citadel of Machaerus stood on a cone-shaped basalt peak to the east of the Dead Sea.  It was surrounded by four deep valleys, two on the sides one in front, the fourth behind."  ("Herodias", page 67)
 From Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte:
"1801-- I have just returned from a visit to my landlord- the solitary neighbour that I shall be troubled with.  this is certainly a beautiful country!"  (Chapter 1, page 3)

Short teasers today!  I spent my early morning cleaning up cat vomit and now I must get ready for work.  I'd rather blog or read or do anything else, but for some reason my landlord enjoys having the rent paid promptly.

Nice teasers - and good luck with cat vomit (may you be without it in the future, I mean). You can do it!

If you'd like, you can check out my teaser here.
