Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should be Reading:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

I am a little bit late with Teaser Tuesday this week for two reasons. The first is that I am having trouble with my home internet connection. If it disconnects, it takes hours to get the darned thing to reconnect. Very frustrating. The second reason is that I spent ages last night looking for a specific book. As a result I now need to restack my bookshelves as I have got books everywhere on the lounge room floor! I also discovered that a book I returned to the library unread a couple of days is one that I actually already own! Whoops!

Anyway, this week's teaser comes from Australian author Kate Morton's The Forgotten Garden (page172):

A distant face, bleached by candelight, was watching. Eliza moved claser to the window to get a better look, but when she did the face was gone.


  1. I read this one about a month ago and it is going on my top ten list of the year. I just loved it! If you haven't finished it - happy reading and enjoy! Have a great week and happy reading. My teaser is here

  2. This one sounds good...Thanks for 'your better late-than-never teaser' it's great. Ihate restacxking bookshelves- and as soon as I make more space, I go get more books!

  3. So far I am really enjoying it Kaye!

    Ms. Lucy, my problem is that no matter how I organise the books on the bookshelf, it is already overflowing! Need new bookshelves.

  4. Nice teaser! I got this one out of the library yesterday. It will be a little while until I get to it, but I'm looking forward to it.

  5. Ohhh... interesting teaser, love the cover as well.

  6. Great teaser. I've always wanted to read something by Morton but never got around to it.

  7. I so want to read this book! Love the teaser. So atmospheric.

  8. Good teaser - I have both her books in my TBR pile - will really have to pull them out and read them

  9. Your teaser inspired me to go look up this book and add it to my wish list. Thanks!

  10. I have The Forgotten Garden on my wish list. It sounds great! I think it's by the same author as The Secret River, which I loved. Sal from that book is one of the few on my Heroines that Don't Annoy me list :-)
