Teaser Tuesday #2 (April 21): Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen

Hey everyone! The time has come for my second Teaser Tuesday up to date, a meme hosted by MizB @ A Daily Rhythm. It’s lots of fun so feel free to join in!

What to do:

Grab your current readPride and Prejudice_bookcover
• 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 Teaser Tuesdays participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I will soon start reading another book for the Popsugar challenge, but currently I’m reading Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (for ‘A Classic Romance’). I love this book, and I had it on my To Be Re-Read List anyway, so I’m glad this challenge sped up the process.

Anyway, here are my two teasers!

Teaser 1:

“Oh! I am not afraid of her dying. People do not die of little trifling colds. She will be taken good care of. As long as she styas there, it is all very well. I would go and see her if I could have the carriage.”

Elizabeth, feeling really anxious, was determined to go see her, though the carriage was not to be had; and as she was no horsewoman, walking was her only alternative. She declared her resolution.

“How can you be so silly,” cried her mother, “as to think of such a thing, in all this dirt! You will not be fit to be seen when you get there.”

“I shall be very fit to see Jane—which is all I want.”

-Chapter 7, Pride and Prejudice

Teaser 2:

“In Meryton they parted; the two youngest repaired to the lodgings of one of the officers’ wives, and Elizabeth continues her walk alone, crossing field after field at a quick pace, jumping over stiles and springing over puddles with impatient activity, and finding herself at last within view of the house, with weary ankles, dirty stockings, and a face glowing with the warmth of exercise.”

-Chapter 7, Pride and Prejudice

That’s it for this week’s Teaser Tuesday! Coming soon: Top 10 Tuesday: Top 10 Favorite Authors!

Teaser Tuesday #1 (April 14): Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Hi! This is my first Teaser Tuesday post (Hosted by MizB @ A Daily Rhythm), so I hope you enjoy!

What to do:

• 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 Teaser Tuesdays participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I was thinking I’d be doing teasers from Tiger’s Destiny by Colleen Houck or Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick, but I ended up finishing both earlier than planned. So I’m currently reading two books: The Daughters Break the Rules by Joanna Philbin and Cinder by Marissa Meyer (re-reading). Instead of doing two teasers from one book, I’ve decided to do 1 teaser for just one of the books I’m reading.

Teaser:

Cinder_bookcover‘ “She thinks I’m weak,” Kai said. “She’s going to try and persuade me to accept the marriage alliance now, while everything’s in chaos.” He kicked the wall, biting back a cry of pain when he remembered he wasn’t wearing shoes. “Can’t we tell her no? Tell her she’s not welcome here?”

“I’m not sure that would be the indications of peace your father had been striving for.”

“She’s the one who’s been threatening war for the last twelve years!”

Torin pursed his lips, and the haunting worry in his gaze quelled Kai’s anger. “Discussions must go two ways, Your Highness. We will listen to her requests, but she must listen to ours as well.” ‘

-Kai to Torin, Cinder by Marissa Meyer
