Teaser Tuesday

6 Aug

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Should Be Reading.

  • 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!


Book: FINALLY i’m up to a new book, and therefore a new teaser! I’ve just started A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. This is the first Dickens book i’ve read, and i’m struggling to get into the way it’s written but slowly getting there! I am up to page 22, and my teaser is from page 127.

The half-dozen who were peering at the chain were still among the wheels, like sheep; the wheels turned so suddenly that they were lucky to save their skins and bones; they had very little else to save, or they might not have been so fortunate.

    Good teaser! Dickens is hard to read sometimes but worth it. Here is my TT http://cynthiastacey.com/2013/08/06/teaser-tuesday-aug-6/

    It does take a lot of patience to wade through a classic like this one, but it’s worth it (once you get into the style of writing). Thanks for sharing today’s teaser.
