Teaser Tuesdays: Alice I Have Been

This week my teaser lines come from Alice I Have Been, Melanie Benjamin's novel based on the relationship between Lewis Carroll and his child-muse, Alice Liddell. This snippet comes from the beginning of Chapter 3 (p.49), in one of the (imaginary, I'm assuming) letters from Carroll to Alice:
The Perfect Day knocked on my window this morning....I don't know about you, but I am rather tired of being myself. Aren't you? Would you like to be someone else, just for today?
Would you?

I'm about halfway through this one, and will have more to say about it in a day or two. It's giving me a lot to think about.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by mizB at Should Be Reading. If you'd like to read more teasers, or take part yourself, just head on over to her blog.

And please feel free to leave me a link to your Teaser Tuesday post in your comment here.


  1. Interesting thought here. Hmm, if I could be someone else for just a day, I would choose to be Betty White when she's visiting the L.A. zoo. Just finished reading her book, "Betty & Friends" and enjoyed it so much! She's had many close encounters with zoo animals!

    Here's our teasers:

    Merry Christmas!

  2. Nah, I'm usually comfortable in my own skin. :)

  3. Good question! I'd love to be someone else for a day if a time machine were available. That would be too cool!

  4. Great teaser! I thoroughly enjoyed this book....thanks for sharing.

  7. I like that teaser. Definitely an interesting thought. I think it would be fun or interesting to be another person - but just for a day.

  8. Just popping in to say Merry Christmas, Joy!


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.
