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!

The tea looked ghastly, anyway: greyish, probably made from chlorinated water, and the milk was powdered and formed lumps. Julia picked up the cups and led Helen little way off, to a heap of sandbags underneath a boarded window.

From The Night Watch by Sarah Waters, p. 209.

That tea sounds awful! I hope all the food in this book isn't that bad.

Teddyree said...

LOL not very appealing, hope the book is better than the tea!

Pam said...

Ah, and that made my morning coffee look so much better in comparison!

Tea with a lot of sympathy!

Well, it sounds horrible, but doesn't it paint a picture?!

Happily the writing is better than the catering . . . being 1944 London all the food's pretty grim!

Michael said...

Ah, I was going to say it sounded like a miserable day for a Brit.

Mary said...

I think I'd pass on the tea : )

Nise' said...

Could it be tea from WWII? The Germans still drink condensed milk in their coffee and tea from those days.
