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!


"Now, you can't buy a village with that; that is, you might buy it, perhaps, if you were to add fourty thousand from the French king. Well, so he took refuge in the Revel hostelry, at a rouble a day: the dinner consisted of cabbage soup, and a scrap of a scrap of roast beef..."

- p. 213, Dead Souls by Nicolai Gogol

  4. Interesting teaser but I'm not sure I'd have the patience to read a whole book written like this!
