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!
Normally I do a random flick through the book that I am going to use for Teaser Tuesday and then scan through looking for a suitable sentence, but this sentence really caught my attention when I was reading so I thought I would use this one. The sentences come from page 60 and 61 of The Temptation of the Night Jasmine by Lauren Willig, the fifth book in the Pink Carnation series:
"I think that's why one sees more happily ever afters in fiction than in biographies. It's not that the trajectories are necessarily so different, but in fiction you can take the moment when everyone is happy and just clip off the thread of the narrative there, right at that trumpets and glory moment."
