Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Miz B 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 and author too, so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.

This is a neat idea! I think I will have to start participating on my blog as well.
I see it as the moral equivalent of a review without nearly as much work. Or maybe the immoral equivalent. But no work, anyway. I’m supposed to be putting my link on the Rather Be Reading blog, I think, but so far, well, it’s that work thing.
“Richard II was only a boy at his accession: one day, however,suspecting that he was now twenty-one, he asked his uncle and, on learning that he was, mounted the throne himself and tried first being a Good King and then being a Bad King, without enjoying either very much.”
(One very long sentence from 1066 And All That, WC Sellar and RJ Yeatman)
And a very good sentence it is. I love history with attitude. Gotta get this one.
