Teaser Tuesdays (48)

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!

Teasers from book one:

"Honoria tried not to wince. The family's annual musicale was never a good time to make the acquaintance of a gentleman, unless he was deaf."

Just  Like Heaven by Julia Quinn
p. 40 (ARC)

Synposis from book:

Honoria Smythe-Smith is:

A) a really bad violinist

B) still miffed at being nicknamed "Bug" as a child

C) NOT in love with her older brother's best friend

D) all of the above

Marcus Holroyd is:

A) the Earl of Chatteris

B) regrettably prone to sprained ankles

C) NOT in love with his best friend's younger sister

D) all of the above

Together they:

A) eat quite a bit of chocolate cake

B) survive a deadly fever AND the world's worst musical performance

C) fall quite desperately in love

It's Julia Quinn at her best, so you KNOW the answer is...

D) all of the above

So far, just like the other books by Julia Quinn that I've read, this one is funny. I haven't read the Bridgerton series yet but this is the first in a spin-off series and I think it can be read as a stand alone. I will be picking up The Viscount Who Loved Me and the other Bridgerton books when I can.

Teasers from book two:

"'We don't want peace,' snarled Bearded Leader. 'We want the blonde.' And he pointed in my direction with his left hand, while his right hand pulled a knife."

Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris
p. 119

I just finished this book. I liked it more than Dead in the Family but it still has flaws and felt at times like just a set up for the final two books. I plan to keep reading the series just to see how it ends.


  1. I do like Charlaine Harris - and the first one sounds like a great read!

    My teaser is here.

  2. Great teasers, especially Dead Reckoning. I am excited to read it even though, I agree, Dead in the Family was a bit disappointing. I look forward to your review!

  3. Thanks for the great teasers:)

    In honor of Sarah Dessen week my Teaser Tuesday is from Just Listen. Happy Reading! Jen

  4. Nice teasers! Both books are on my TBR stack and I am eager to get to them. Can't wait for the end of school to dive into reading. My adult teaser is from Dead by Midnight by Carolyn Hart and my young adult teaser is from In the Arms of Stone Angels by Jordan Dane. Happy reading!
