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!
“They might have stepped straight from one of Scott’s novels. The dull laden-skied winter afternoon, with a piercing cold wind blowing across the bare landscape seemed completely in keeping with them. I remember how, with a heart sinking in foreboding, I murmured to myself: ‘Now I am in Scotland!'”
