Teaser Tuesdays


MizB of Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. 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 CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! You don't want to spoil the book for others.
*Share the title and author too, so other TT participants can add it to their TBR lists if they like your teaser!


Here's mine from Dancers in Mourning by Margery Allingham (p. 1):

When Mr. William Faraday sat down to write his memoirs after fifty-eight years of blameless inactivity he found the work of inscribing the history of his life almost as tedious as living it had been, and so, possessing a natural invention coupled with a gift for locating the easier path, he began to prevaricate a little upon the second page, working his way up to downright lying on the sixth and subsequent folios.

If he felt it was inactive then a few lies I guess will just make it exciting, lol

It does make you wonder how many "memoirs" have false tales in them lol (even though this is fiction) I hope you enjoy the book!

I love it! Probably what I would resort to doing too. Nobody wants to read about the everyday life of nobody special. :) If you get a chance, my teaser is here.
