Teaser Tuesdays (32)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I haven't participated in this meme for awhile and today I chose to post two teasers because I liked them both so much!

My teasers this week:

"Alexia was known throughout London for her intellectual prowess, patronage of the scientific community, and biting wit. Felicity and Evylin were known for their puffed sleeves. The world, as a result, was generally more peaceful when the three were not living under the same roof." p.6

"Given her previous familiarity with near-death experiences and their comparative frequency with regards to her good self, Alexia should probably have allowed extra time for such a predictable happenstance. Except that in this particular instance, the unpleasant event was occurring in broad daylight, while she was driving down Oxford Street-not, as a general rule, the expected time or location for such an event." p. 37

Blameless by Gail Carriger

I chose not to post a description of Blameless because it unfortunately contains spoilers for book two, Changeless. I love the Parasol Protectorate series. Alexia is such a funny and intelligent character and I like the mix of paranormal, mystery, and romance. Gail Carriger's writing style is witty and sarcastic. If you haven't read the books, check out my review of Soulless, the first book in the series to learn more about it.


  1. This is a great series. I can hardly wait for the next volume. I have two this week. My YA teaser is from Five Flavors of Dumb and my adult teaser is from The Iron Duke. Happy reading!

  2. I haven't read the series yet but I can't wait! Thanks for sharing. You can find my teaser at The Bookish Snob

  3. O no! Sounds good! I love this teaser.

  4. I just began Soulless and will not doubt be wanting Changelss after. I already like Alexia a lot as a character! Great teaser!
