Teaser Tuesday

Gabriel Tozer had apparently been determined to auction several secrets along with a lifetime’s worth of possessions.  The minor mysteries wrapped round them would have intrigued Harding even without the personal interest he had in some of the questions they raised.

Great characters and plotting with MANY twists. A third of the way through I thought I had it figured out but I was wrong!

Teaser Tuesday

From East of the Sun by Julia Gregson, 2008, Orion Books

“But now she was feeling all wobbly and chameleonish again, which was annoying, only this time it was Frank, and to nutshell the problem, she had the most hideous crush on him.  When he’d asked her, in the most casual way possible, if Rose and she had any plans for Port Said, she’d been sitting in the bar chatting to Jitu Singh.”

Teaser Tuesday – The Last Folk Hero

I said, “Carolyn, I don’t know how to say this, but I’ve got to.  Almost all of the porcelain out there is fake.”

This is a meme that anyone can do.  I found it  at Jeanne’s Blog, and the way it works is:

  • 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!

Now I just need yet another tutorial on how to copy the badge to my blog.  Every time a badge comes along that I want to proudly display, it’s always a challenge to me for some reason.    And I need to find a pic of the cover perhaps on Amazon, is that how everyone does it?

the host is Miz B at Should be Reading so if you join in, go to her Teaser Tuesday post and post your link in the comments section!  If you aren’t actively blogging, just put the teaser itself into the comments section.

Although I may not do this every week, I’m usually reading something, so why not?

Teaser Tuesday ~ Mortal Engines

“So tell me, Tom,” asked Miss Fang, setting the ship on a new course, “where is London going?”

What if Miss Fang flew off and told some larger city where to lie in wait for London, in exchange for a finder’s fee?
