Teaser Tuesday

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! 

I hope you all are well this gloomy, rainy Tuesday. I look forward to days like this so I can just curl up and read without guilt. I'm sure God created rainy days for just that reason. Like the new picture? I wish I could remember who I stole it from so I could give her credit (if you read this - let us know it's you!)

I have just finished the book 'Wisdom of Our Fathers: Lessons and Letters from Daughters and Sons' by Tim Russert and I'm just starting 'Louisa and the Missing Heiress' by Anna MacLean. So, lucky you, two teasers today:

From 'Wisdom of Our Fathers' page 211:

"I won't deny that a racially mixed marriage might have been a little difficult for him to get used to. After all, I grew up in the fifties in a town where a mixed marriage was one between a Lutheran and a Catholic."

From 'Louisa and the missing Heiress' page 67:

"The morning fog had not lifted, and the great ships and smaller schooners of Boston Harbor rocked gently on the swells like gargantuan birds, their wings tucked under, barely visible through the drifting mist and spray. Rigging creaked; watch bells clanged; the voices of the shoremen and dock-hands echoed and repeated, bouncing off that thick pea-soup fog."

Now I'm off to my living room to curl up on my big comfy couch and read the day away. Take care all.

  4. Both good teasers. So different! Thanks for sharing. If you get a chance, my teaser is here.

  5. Have fun reading the day away! I'm super jealous :) Lovely teasers.

  6. Great Teasers! Hope you enjoy the reading!

  7. I got my fill of rain this spring but, yeah, rain and reading go together!

  8. Both are great. I've been considering reading Russert's book. Perhaps I should.

  9. Book Nerd - I enjoyed it. Very moving.

  10. Both great teasers, I love the description in Louisa and the Missing Heiress. Wisdom of our Fathers sounds like it would be a good book to read as well! Thank you for sharing and stopping by my teaser.
