Teaser Tuesday


TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
Please avoid spoilers


Ok : Here's My Tuesday Teaser

"On their last evening a game of charades was hurriedly organised, the choice of each well-known phrase or saying apparently one of the lesser-known prerogatives of the monarch, and well known though they may been to her, they were a mystery to everyone else, including the prime minister. The prime minister never liked to lose, even to the monarch, and it was no consolation to be told by one of the princes that no one but the Queen could hope to win, as the questions (several of them about Proust) were set by Norman and taken from their reading. "

What a fantastic blog you have here! I am so excited to find you. I was invited by Irish to be added as a friend to your Shelfari group. I then found your blog. I am so excited to see a terrific LDS book club reading great literature! We have one here that I moderate in sunny southern California and I can never read enough.
I am thrilled to pieces that you will be reading Wuthering Heights in November as it is my favorite book of all time.

Happy Reading Ladies!

I love your blog as well! I stumbled upon it a few days ago and have been lurking ever since. I actually have a quote...
"Slowly, Janessa nodded her head and closed her eyes. She could hear the rustle of the breeze outside, she could smell the mixture of cologne from the men trying to save her, and she could feel her heart pounding. A million thoughts rushed through her mind as she faced the reality that this breath might be her last."
