Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays
is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. This is the first time I've participated in TTs, but I've been following it for a while now.

The rules are these:

  • 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!

My teaser sentences come from Hotel Du Lac, by Anita Brookner:

She resigned herself to standing around for the requisite amount of time (Penelope did not like one to sit down) when the resonant sentence floated into her consciousness. Tracing it to its source, she saw a tall, lean, foxy man helping himself to a handful of peanuts; she saw, from his back, that he was restless, impatient, and burning to get away. [p. 59]

I do enjoy Brookner's novels. But sometimes by the end of them, all that angst and gloom makes me feel "restless, impatient, and burning to get away," myself!


  1. Well, your teaser was certainly attention grabbing! I'd love to hear how you like the book!


    Here's my Teaser!

  2. Now that's what I'd call honing in on intuition, interesting teaser.

  3. Good teaser. I find Brookner is rather gloomy, but can't remember much about Hotel du Lac as I read it years ago.

  4. Hey! I wanted to drop by and wish you an awesome Thanksgiving. :)


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
