Teaser Tuesday (August 6)

tteTeaser 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 teaser!

Here’s mine for the week:

It was not in Miss Crawford’s power to talk Fanny into any real forgetfulness of what had passed.–When the evening was over, she went to bed full of it, her nerves still agitated by the shock of such an attack from her cousin Tom, so public and so persevered in, and her spirits sinking under her aunt’s unkind reflection and reproach.

Pg. 148, Mansfield Park by Jane Austen

    A perfect teaser! As an Austen fan, though, I do not need to be encouraged to read this book again 🙂

  2. As soon as I started reading your Teaser, I knew it wasn’t from a contemporary novel. I haven’t read this book, but I will.
    Here’s my Teaser: Tougher Than the Rest

  3. Caroline says:

    I want to read Mansfield Park soon as well. That and Persuasion are the ones I haven’t read yet.

    • TBM says:

      I have this one, Emma, and Persuasion left. I’m not too far into Mansfield but managed to read 20 pages yesterday while standing in line at the post office. Don’t you just love the post office.

    Now you’re reading 🙂

  5. lynnsbooks says:

    I’m also a fan. I’ve read all her books and love them.
    Lynn 😀

  6. Good teaser! You got some quite a bit with those two sentences!!

  7. Vishy says:

    Nice teaser, TBM! I haven’t read ‘Mansfield Park’ but saw a movie version of it a few years back. I loved the movie version and want to read the book one day. Hope you are enjoying reading the book. Will look forward to hearing your thoughts on it. Happy reading!

    • TBM says:

      I haven’t had much time to read it this week, but now that’s Friday, I hope to spend many hours delving into the story. I think I’ll watch all the Austen movies when I’m done with all of her books.

Thanks for commenting, I would love to hear from you.
