Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Purple Booker. Here are the rules if you would like to play along!
• 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!
“You should stay here,” Cornelia persists, looking almost wretched. Nella turns to breathe the air of the outdoors, away from the smoky scent of the candles, her watchful face. “Wherever it is, you shouldn’t go alone,” the maid murmurs, more gently this time, putting a hand on Nella’s arm. “I’m only -”
“Unlike you, Cornelia, I can go wherever I want.”
~ The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton
So this quote is from my current read. Yes, I know, it was nowhere on my WWW post last week. These things happen sometimes. I picked this one up at Barnes & Noble knowing absolutely nothing about it, but loving the cover art. I like doing that sometimes at bookstores – finding a book that just speaks to me for some reason, even if I’ve never heard of the book or the author. This one is really interesting so far and the writing is beautiful. I’ll let y’all know how it is when I finish it.
Please leave your teasers in comments!
