Teaser Tuesdays


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!



  • My Teaser this week comes from page 180 of The House of Spirits by Isabel Allende.

    During the months that they were separated, Blanca and Pedro Tercero exchanged burning letters, which he signed in a woman's name and which she hid as soon as they arrived. Nana managed to intercept one or two, but she did not know how to read, and even if she had she would not have been able to break their secret code - fortunately for her, because her heart would not have withstood the shock.

    This is one of those books I've always intended to read, but just never seem to get around to. Great teaser!
