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 ruin 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 North & South by Elizabeth Gaskell (p. 31):
Of course, as your feelings are so decided, and as the conversation has been so evidently unpleasant to you, it had better not be remembered. That's all very fine in theory, that plan of forgetting whatever is painful, but it will be somewhat difficult for me, at least, to carry it into execution.

Sounds like an interesting idea...forgetting what is painful. Unfortunately, those things resurface at unfortunate times!

Thanks for sharing, and here's MY TUESDAY MEMES POST

The title on that on caught me. Thanks for visiting.

Actually, doesn't someone find the painful things harder to forget than the more pleasant things? Great teaser. My teasers this week are from The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater and Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost. Happy reading!

It sounds very stilted and formal. Hope that's just one of the characters, although it doesn't bother me in Jane Austen novels. Here's Mine

Hi! Thanks for the visit to my blog!

Great teaser! I feel the exact same way sometimes. Forgetting something painful or unpleasant is easier said than done.
