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.

So busy week last week I am still working on the first of the Saxon series re-read but that’s okay cause I mean who wouldn’t want to spend extra time with Uhtred right? I mean remember….

“What happens to you, Uhtred, is what you make happen. You will grow, you will learn the sword, you will learn the way of the shield wall, you will learn the oar, you will give honor to the gods, and then you will use what you have learned to make your life good or bad.”
― Bernard Cornwell, The Last Kingdom

I picked two from this one this week:

“Destiny is all, Ravn liked to tell me, destiny is everything. He would even say it in English, “Wyrd biõ ful ãræd.”

“The preachers tell us that pride is a great sin, but the preachers are wrong. Pride makes a man, it drives him, it is the shield wall around his reputation… Men die, they said, but reputation does not die.”

“We came onto the Graben at the plague column. The lamps of passing carriages flickered over the memorial of those who died over the Black Death. Nine carved choirs of angels ascended toward it’s gilded peak. To me, it seemed like the cherubs were slipping down to hell, grasping in vain for the elusive light of salvation above them.”
― Mozart’s last Aria by Matt Rees

I shall hang my head in shame that I have posted a teaser from this poor book yet again. I keep reading a few pages and then I end up getting bogged down in work. Poor excuse I know, but the Kindle seems to get along with my work schedule a bit better than hard copy books right now. What I need is a month or two without too many people, no computer and a boat. Yup, that’s what I need.

I know this will seem funny since I was reading book 3 last week but hey I am entitled to be funny sometimes decided to go back and read the rest again.

“9p.m. My flat. Feel very strange and empty. Is all very well thinking everything is going to be different when you come back but then it is all the same. Suppose I have to make it different. But what am I going to do with my life?
I know. Will eat some cheese.” ~ Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (Bridget Jones #2)

Even though when I read through it before I really did NOT like this book at all. Thanks to the hulu series I decided to give this one another shot. So..here goes.

“But who can remember pain, once it’s over? All that remains of it is a shadow, not in the mind even, in the flesh. Pain marks you, but too deep to see. Out of sight, out of mind.”
― Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale

“In a drawer in the bureau of an upstairs room of my current home, there is a locked cedar wood box, which I inherited as a youth from my grandfather. This is, one might say, my box of secrets. When I was young, it contained the treasures of boyhood, the catapult, the lump of beeswax, the carapace of a crab. For many years since, it has been the repository of an archive, admittedly a ragged and distorted archive, a collection of notes and scribbling concerning some of the many cases of my life-long friend, the consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes, which for one reason or another, I never took the trouble to write in the proper reports.” ~ Sherlock Holmes: The Rediscovered Railway Mysteries and Other Stories by John Taylor 1 of 4: An Inscrutable Masquerade

“All at once he crashed, turning white as the blood drained from his face. Angus broke through the group, grasped the handle, and in a smooth, confident maneuver removed the knife. I saw the deep wound between the knuckles begin to seep just a bare amount of dark-red, almost black, blood.” ~ Select (Untitled #1) by Marit Wiesenberg 2%

“Whats wrong with the wind lately,” Fay muttered to herself, tucking a curl back in her hand-knitted hat (orange, like the glass of her teardrop pendant.) Her hair was always like this, frizzy and all over the place, which was exactly what she liked about it, except on blustery days when every strand seemed to have a mind of its own. ― Looking Glass Friends: A Novel Inspired by Real Love Letters Kindle Edition

Running a little behind today sorry about that! I thought I had this post scheduled and have been neck deep in spring cleaning. At any rate without further waiting here is Teaser Tuesday.

ETA: It would seem my blog is also having fun changing publishing dates on me. Gonna have to check that glitch. So sorry everyone.

 

“Simha had rented 300 seat theater downtown for auditions on Monday and Tuesday evening in the second week of May. The wooden stage was wide but a bit shallow. Black curtains hung down on the sides, hiding the wings. A plain white screen hung down, hiding the far back stage and back brick wall of the theater.” ― Mary Poser: Butterflies and White Lies as Bollywood Comes to Nashville by Angel A.
