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 and 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!) then share the title & author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Tease?

I had never known how Cornelia managed to get to the attic to steal the madder that stained my apron red. It was in her nature to be sly, to slip away when no one was looking.


p. 125 , The Girl with the Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier — I’m reading this one for my book club and we meet Sunday, so there should be a regular review/commentary early next week.  Or not. It is NaNovember

I have a confession. I didn’t read last week’s book. I carried it around for day, intending to start it, but I never did. Then it was overdue at the library and I took it back, abandoning hope. If I’m honest, the skimming I did looking for an at least vaguely interesting tease kind of turned me off the book.
