Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • 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!


  • I haven't done a Teaser Tuesday post for a couple of weeks because I was away last week! This week my teaser comes from page 269 of Winston's War by Michael Dobbs. When I tell you that this book is about Winston Churchill and WWII, the following two sentences are not exactly spoilers given that it is from the historical record.

    This morning the British Ambassador in Berlin handed the German Government a final note stating that, unless we heard from them by eleven o'clock that they were prepared at once to withdraw their troops from Poland, a state of war would exist between us.

    I have to tell you now that no such undertaking has been received, and that consequently, this country is at war with Germany.


    By the way, over at Historical Tapestry we are giving away 10 copies of Lady Vernon and her Daughter, A novel of Jane Austen's Lady Susan by Jane Rubino and Caitlin Rubino-Bradway. For all the giveaway details please click on the following link:

    3. Sounds like an interesting book. But it must be a really long one, if this is from page 269 and the war is just getting started!
