Teaser Tuesday-Jan. 13



Check out Teaser Tuesdays from Should Be Reading. 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!

Please avoid spoilers!


This week my teaser is from Peony in Love by Lisa See:

I didn't know why Mama was upset.

"My daughter isn't feeling well," Mama confided to the mothers around her, "and I'm afraid she's forgotten what's proper."

So hard for a child when they are trying to comprehend why an adult is upset.

Good teaser!

And thanks for stopping by today. I have not read Anna Karenina and reading this modern treatment makes me want, too. The author is a Russian woman who immigrated to New York as a young girl and the book is saturated with all kinds of family tradition and history.

I loved Peony in Love! Hope you are enjoying it. And Snowflower and Secret Fan was just as good.

Ohh.... sounds interesting. I'm curious about the "not proper" reference. This may be a good way for me to ease into the Anna Karenina story.
