Teaser Tuesdays: January 20th

teasertuesdays2014e

 

It’s time for another Teaser Tuesday! It’s hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading and it’s super simple to participate. Here’s all that’s to it…

• 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser for this week is from North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell. I’m reading this as part of a Read Along and even though I’m SUPER behind I still have every intention of reading this whole damn book this month! It will happen.

“Mr Bell gave her one of his sharp glances from above his spectacles. She stood it quite calmly; but, after she had left the room, he suddenly asked, –
“Hale! did it ever strike you that Thornton and your daughter have what the French call a tendresse for each other?”

    Love the classics! Yes, this is one of those big, fat books you can really sink your teeth into.
