Teaser Tuesdays - 25 Jan 2011

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

Marcia Schuyler by Grace Livingston Hill

'It was a lovely evening. The twilight was not yet over as she stepped from the low piazza that ran the length of the house bearing another above it on great white pillars. A drapery of wisteria in full bloom festooned across one end and half over the front. Marcia stepped back across the stone flagging and driveway to look up the purple clusters of graceful fairy-like shape tha embowered the house, and thought how beautiful it would look when the wedding guests should arrive the day after the morrow.'

I guess you might think this was an unusual teaser, but I just loved the description, particularly about the wisteria.

Beautiful teaser. I absolutely love Grace Livingston Hill. You've made me want to go dig in my collection and read a few. Here is my teaser from Sharpshooter in Petticoats.

I liked this teaser. It's a nice description, and it really makes you feel like you're there, in the middle of the scene. Here's my teaser.

Too much description here for my taste but certainly is a beautiful description.

Here's ours if you get a chance to stop by:

I love descriptions...they help me visualize settings.

I must have read every Grace Livingston Hill book in our library when I was a girl (we didn't have YA, like today's girls, but I'm kind of glad!).

Even my mother loved these books and read them as long as she could see to read!

Here's my TT:

Happy Teaser Tuesday!!! My teaser this week is for Mistwood by Leah Cypess which is currently discount on Amazon for only $6.50 for a new hardcover copy!!! I posted a link to the price! Finally, a great fantasy book that really feels like the older fantasy novels written by favorites like Tamora Pierce and Sharon Shinn!
