Teaser Tuesday (June 15)

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
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


This book has been sitting on my To Be Read shelf for ages, so it’s about time I got around to it.

But later that night when she went to bed and I followed her to her door, she stopped me.

“No, Charles, not yet. Perhaps never. I don’t know. I don’t know if I want love.”

Then something, some surviving ghost from those dead ten years – for one cannot die, even for a little, without some loss – made me say, “Love? I’m not asking for love.”

“Oh yes, Charles, you are,” she said, and putting up her hand gently stroked my cheek; then shut her door.

— p.292, Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh

      Yay! It’s definitely worth a read — the recent movie is beautifully done as well, so if you like the book you might want to give it a try 🙂
