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</http://thepurplebooker.com/wp-admin/themes.phpem>
• 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.
I am back to another series set that I have liked since I was younger and is currently a running TV show. Good ole Ross Poldark has been a friend of mine since oh goodness well since I was very young. He is a very flawed hero but I always found that was one of the reasons I liked him so much, even if I didn’t like his actions he was very human.
“The case is closed, Mr. Poldark. You will kindly step down.” “Otherwise,” said Dr. Halse, “we will have you committed for contempt of court.” Ross bowed slightly. “I can only assure you, sir, that such a committal would be a reading of my inmost thoughts.”
― Winston Graham, Ross Poldark

I’ve never read any Poldark but it’s definitely an interesting teaser.
My teaser this week comes from Our Dark Duet which also has more than a few flawed characters not all of which are human. https://iwuvbooks.wordpress.com/2017/07/25/teaser-tuesday-25th-july-2017/
I’ve never heard of this series, but this teaser you posted sure sounds good. Here is my teaser from Exit West by Mohsin Hamid:
I’m playing today at Beth Fish Reads.
I haven’t heard of this series. I hope the TV show is doing it justice!
Here is my teaser from The Late Show by Michael Connelly.
It is actually. Poldark is one of the few shows that to me really comes up to the mark and some of the small changes they make are ones I agree with. Its done by the BBC though so shouldn’t be to surprising to me, lol. We get it on PBS stateside.
Interesting excerpt! Here’s mine: “HEARTBREAK HOTEL”
Great teaser. This is mine for the week: http://earthianhivemind.net/2017/07/25/teaser-tuesday-25-july/
Not familiar with the book or the show, but I love the teaser! Here’s my Teaser for this week: http://bit.ly/2tH4xPD
Nuanced characters are the best. I’m glad to hear that the TV series is up to par with the books as I haven’t read them … yet.
Here is my teaser from The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken.
Say what? He wants to get locked up?
Mine is here: http://www.aliceaudrey.com/?p=14774
No, but he does have nothing but contempt for the court!
Like the series,never read the book.
A sci-fi/paranormal suspense from me today: https://pdworkman.com/excerpt-from-the-third-gate/

Great teaser! I didn’t know there was a TV show of this one. Happy reading! Here’s my teaser of The Lost Book Of The Grail by Charlie Lovett.
I’ve seen the Poldark PBS series, but I didn’t know it was based on a book. My own Teaser this week is from a fun YA fantasy, Seriously Wicked, about a modern suburban teenage girl being raised by an evil witch. The book is by Tina Connolly. Here’s the link:

Oh, he seems like the kind of guy to have a clever line for everything! Here’s my teaser from Wild About You by Kerrelyn Sparks:
A little late, but mine is finally up!
Haven’t heard of this series, but seems interesting. I know I’m a day late for sharing, but my teaser this week is from Mansfield Park.
I watched the original series on PBS but never read the book and couldn’t switch to new actors in the new series — liked the old ones too much. Great teaser! Here’s the link from my post yesterday: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1za
You’ve made me want to read Poldark! I’m a bit late, but I didn’t want to miss another week, so I hope it’s okay! I shared a teaser from Always With Love by Giovanna Fletcher.
I’ve never heard of this series!
I read the whole Poldark series when I was a girl and watching the original TV adaptation in the 1970s. I started watching this one – but right now I start watching – then fall asleep! That says nothing about the quality of the show, though – I think it’s great. Glad you’re enjoying the books again:) My TT this week is a book I’ve been hearing a lot about… https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2017/07/25/teaser-tuesday-25th-july-2017/
I always love a courtroom joke, since I’m a lawyer. Great teaser!
I’m late with mine — because I’m getting ready for a trial. http://www.rosecityreader.com/2017/07/teaser-tuesday-crime-of-passion-fruit.html
