Teaser Tuesdays

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page.
  • 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!

This is my first Sarah Waters book, and I am enjoying reading it! I cannot wait to read the rest of her books, especially Fingersmith and The Little Stranger, in which I have heard nothing but raves about them.


How would it be, I thought, to surrender my family, my home, all my oyster-girl's ways?

And how would it be to live at Kitty's side, brim-full of a love so quick, and yet so secret, it made me shake?



(Pg 57, Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters)

    Ooh, I love it. I've always wanted to read Tipping the Velvet. I can't wait to hear what you think of it.

    I'm a bit jealous...I haven't read any of her books yet! Soon. Must read Sarah Waters soon.

    Have a great week, Melody!

    I'm glad you're enjoying it! Tipping the Velvet is a good first Sarah Waters read, but Fingersmith is better yet, and I really love The Night Watch too.


  6. Julia Says:

    Interesting teaser, Melody! I hope you enjoy the book!


  7. Got this (and Affinity) on my TBR as well - hope you enjoy it!


  8. Melody Says:

    Thanks, everyone! Reading this book has definitely made me want to read Fingersmith (or The Little Stranger sooner!) ;)

    Happy reading!

    Hearts! I love her writing so much.

    I am crazy for Sarah Waters. I've read Fingersmith, The Little Stranger and Night Watch. I'd say before the year is out, I will have read everything she has written. She is that good.


  11. Jennifer Says:

  12. Matt Says:

    I read The Night Watch and loved it, this book is next on my list for Sarah Waters. :)

    I've heard all of the same raves and brought home The Little Stranger on audio. My hubby listened to it first and really didn't like it (thought I'd help lower your expectations a bit). SO, I plan on starting with Fingersmith!


  14. Dar Says:

    Good teaser. I've heard so much about her books that I really need to read one. I have one on my shelf - I should pull it out one of these days.


  15. Andreea Says:

    I will check out this book. Thanks for telling us about it, Melody.

    I can't resist this book and kept thinking about it after you showed it to me on Friday. I ordered and downloaded a Kindle edition! Whheeeee~~
