Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jenn of Book and a Beat. I discovered Tuesday Teaser at http://www.lizannelloyd.wordpress.com
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read.
- Open to a random page.
- Share two or three *teaser* sentences from somewhere on that page.
- Be careful not to include spoilers (make sure that what you share doesn’t give to much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!
Share the title and the author too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!
“The Mystery of Edwin Drood, by Charles Dickens is the fourth book I have read by this author. The others being, David Copperfield, Great Expectations and The Old Curiosity Shop.
“Dickens died before completing The Mystery of Edwin Drood, leaving its tantalising mystery unsolved and encouraging successive generations of readers to turn detective.” ~goodreads
“In the midst of Cloisterham stands the Nuns’ House; a venerable brick edifice, whose present appellation is doubtless derived from the legend of its conventual uses. On the trim gate enclosing its old courtyard is a resplendent brass plate flashing forth the legend: ‘Seminary for Young Ladies, Miss Twinkleton.’ The house- front is so old and worn, and the brass plate is so shining and staring, the general result has reminded imaginative strangers of a battered old beau with a large modern eye-glass stuck in his blind eye.”
I bought this book at a used bookstore and I am really looking forward to the unfinished conclusion. 🙂 I am very curious and wanting to solve the mystery. Intriguing. 🙂
