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 the hardest part of participating in Teaser Tuesday is deciding which passage to share. Tonight I am struggling to decide which book to look in for a teaser! I have three books on the go, two are very close to finished, and the other I am about half way through. Historical romance, historical fiction or historical mystery. The only guarantee so far is that the quote will be from a book with a historical theme!
Decisions, decisions. A quick flick through all three of them, and decision made. My teaser this week comes from one of the books that I am very nearly finished. It comes from page 105 of Leonardo's Swans by Karen Essex:
Isabella loves the way the Magistro works the dark upon the light; loves the muted colors, and the way that he managed to paint fragile netting upon her hair, tied ever so delicately under her chine. How does one paint translucence?
