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!
I'm re-reading one of my very favorite series, the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde, and I'm on the second book, Lost in a Good Book. It's a tough call whether I adore Thursday or her brilliant creator more. There's so much going on in these books that it's tough to pick a couple of sentences that will make any sort of sense to someone new to the series, so this is longer than two sentences. Thursday is talking to Marianne Dashwood in Sense & Sensibility:
"Don't we have to be careful as to what we say?" I managed to utter, looking around nervously.
"Goodness me, no!" exclaimed Marianne with a delightful giggle. "The chapter is over, and besides, this book is written in the third person. We are free to do what we please until tomorrow morning, when we depart for Devon. The next two chapters are heavy with exposition--I hardly have anything to do, and I say even less! You look confused, poor thing! Have you been into a book before?"
