Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, the weekly Meme that wants you to add books to your TBR, or just share what you are currently reading. It is very easy to play along:

• 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! Everyone loves Teaser Tuesday.

Tardy again today sorry folks been busy with this whole Holiday thing … not used to it lose track of time real easy 😂 getting some great reading done too though!

No Vestal could be killed within Romes walls. A small chamber had been built near the Colline Gate, in the campus sceleratus. A place more often known as the Evil Fields. The Emperor has ordered a dais and stands erected, as if for a festival, but the crowd there was curiously hushed as they watched the Vestal Virgin pause before her burial chamber gathering her snowy robes.” – Mistress of Rome of 330 by Kate Quinn

Hello from England again!

“Elizabeth banished her ladies, Anne Warwick, Helena Gorges and Philadelphia Scrope,to the far reaches of the grand gallery overlooking the tiltyard. She walked alone under the Mural of Moses on the ceiling, her footsteps sounding hollow against the stone expanse beneath.” – page 157 His Last Letter by Jeane Westin

Random Question: Hardcopy or Kindle for plane travel?

I am off and traveling tomorrow! Can hardly wait and have so much to get done! I haven’t even finished packing yet, which is awful lol. But that does lead me to ask when you travel do you prefer to have a few hard copy books in your carry on or the good old electronic kindle these days?

Sorry this is so late today guys, some tech issue along with some stuff going on that I am trying not to think about and its already half past 11am! I don’t have a new quote myself this week, but I am looking forward to reading all of yours! You guys seriously keep making my TBR bigger!

I hope no one is having issues with accessing the site please let me know if if you are so I can contact the host. I believe it’s just my computer acting up so this one is from the phone.

Random Question: do you ever feel obligated to read a book because you have read something else by the author ?

I’ll answer more in depth when I have my computer sorted out. I know sometimes I do feel like I should try other work by and Author. I felt that way over liking the Twilight series but I really disliked The Host.

Two weeks and off I go to England….with a mini trip to Rome! I am just a little bit excited about this development. Just scooped this book purely based on the title…LOL i have to many books going at once right now but I look forward to finishing them up a little in their spot as it were if that makes sense lol.

Random Question: What do you think of required reading in school?

I recently watched a comment thread while browsing for slime shop work lol, where some kids were complaining about required reading. They said every book on the list was boring ect. I remember really enjoying required reading in school. Sure not every book was a hit but many of them really helped ignite my love of the written word. I just could not understand the huge dislike. Of course I am sure some of it stems from not wanting to be told what to read. I think required reading is important. You never know which kid may be sparked to not only be online but really love books by reading one of the classics. So what do you think?
