Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. If you'd like to play along, please 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

Here's my teaser from The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte by Syrie James:

p. 3

"I have, in my secret heart, long dreamt of an intimate connection with a man; every Jane, I believe, deserves her Rochester -- does she not? Yet I had long since given up all hope of that experience in my own life."

I really loved this book! I have my review up of it on my blog, if you wanted to check it out.
Love your background!

I like this idea. A sentence can grab me if it's just the right one. I think you picked a great teaser for this book. I also love your layout. Very pretty:)

Joanne said...

Sharon - I love the book so far -- I have become a follower of your blog, as well. Thank you for stopping by!

Hi, Septembermom! I think you would love the writing of Syrie James; she is spot on in capturing the voice and spirit of both Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte. Thanks for visiting!

What a great teaser. I think the Syrie James book of Jane Austen diaries will be my next read (after my library bookclub one). I have one chapter left on The Ladies Auxiliary--love it! ~~ Kim

Joanne said...

Hi, Kim - Glad you're enjoying your book club selection. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on The Lost Memoirs.
