Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from - that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

‘What does he know?’ whispered Lucy as soon as they were alone. ‘Charlotte, how much does Mr Eager know?’

From A Room with a View by E. M. Forster, p. 66.

I presume you mean the version with Helena Bonham Carter? Because while I'm reading I'm trying not to think about the most recent one!

When I read your teaser, Charlotte's Web pop up on my head. Wahahaha.

Ooh! This one has been on my shelf for years. I need to pop this baby out.


Margot said...

Thank you for the reminder of what a good book this is. It's on my Spring Thing list.

I am re-organizing my TBR pile and just came across this one. I hope it's good :)

Jenny said...

Your excerpt makes A Room with a View sound much more cloak and dagger than I remember it being! :P

Haven't read the book or saw the movie. But would like too. Heard they are both good! My teaser is posted here:

I love Tuesday. I always get a ton of great new books to read. This is a great teaser. I'm going to have to check this book out.

I love this book and its Merchant Ivory adaption.

The more recent ITV version was horrible, wasn't it? George Emerson's accent and the changed ending were particular peeves of mine!

I like that!

"Gerry Heffernan was partial to church bells."

Not bad either, is it?

I've never read this book, but I feel like I should.
