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.

Back home and in the real world as mentioned in yesterday’s musing Monday. Happy to see my babies but a little grumpy about being back to the grindstone 😂. I hope everyone else is having a great week so far!

My emeralds reflected the stage lights, as they were intended to do. I removed my cloak and took my time sitting, as I knew William liked, giving them all a chance to see me, letting the glare of my jewels lure their gazes. — An inconvient wife by Megan Chance

I am back state side and it is time to get out of Holiday mode and back to work. I really don’t want to 😂 although some of the things I do want to do like give this blog more attention! Anyways on with Musing Monday.

Random Question: Do you multi task while reading? blockquote>

The other day I was at the gym and saw someone reading while on the treadmill. That is what prompted this question, I don’t remember seeing someone do that before. I myself find that even if I intend to do more then one thing at once like read and walk or read and cook I never end up being able to do it. Either I wind up needing to fully focus on what I’m doing or getting sucked into the book. I have even have had times when I will sit down to start a new book, get to the end of it and notice 8 hours passed without me getting anything at all done 😂. So how about you?

Finally feeling a bit accomplished reading wise on holiday. Have finished three books this one I just finished this morning but technically it’s a today thing so I’m counting it as I’m on the train again.

He leaned over, reached into a bag she hadn’t noticed he had with him, and what looked like a yellow object resembling a rose. Handing it to her he said sheepishly, “Because I’m sorry for what I’ve done.” He reached in again and withdrew a pink one. “Because I adore you,” he said replacing the yellow one he had just given her with the pink. He reached down again and this time he pulled out a red one. “Because you’re my true love,” he said handing her the paper rose. – page 257 Intentions of the Earl (Scandalous sisters #1 by Rose Gordon

Random Question: Do you use reading to escape stress?

Sometimes when I’m stressed I have issues focusing but I do look at reading as an escape. Sometimes takes me longer to finish a book because of the focus issues but in general it’s a good escape.

I am on the move today but don’t want to be late. So for now I’ll leave my vestal teaser up and edit it later as I finished that book up last week.

Edit: decided to keep last weeks quote as well as many it seems didn’t see it last week which is fine 👍🏼 Here is this weeks quote as well for you. Thank all of you for baring with me while I’m on holiday and in general.

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

Random Question: Do books ever make you hungry?

Ok this might seem like a super silly question but it isn’t that far out of the box is it? Sometimes when I’m reading a book especially one of my historical books and they talk about a big fancy meal I can feel my mouth water. In fact just read a bunch of stuff about a meal heavy on deserts and of course that makes me want to dig into a cake or something. That isn’t helped at all by the fact that Tesco has these wonderful cheap little cakes 😂. I know they aren’t top of the line bakery or anything they are a bit dry but flavor wise I like them especially the lemon drizzle and Victoria sponge. Yummy yummy. And now just typing this has made me want one 😂. How about you with food?
