Tuesday Teaser ~ March 6, 2012

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!
What's This Broad Reading Today?

Well, I'm not actually reading it yet.  It sits in my all too tall reading stack on the coffee table.  I so want to begin reading, but I promised to read a few other books first.  I may have to return it to the library and check it out in a few weeks....sigh.

There's been quite the buzz about Gabaldon's novel, all good.  Mmmm-hmmm-hmm.  Sounds right up my alley. 

The Scottish Prisoner: A Novel (Lord John)Teaser...
 
Pg. 84  'All of them were grinning at him, maliciously enjoying his shock.  He swallowed hard and tensed his belly muscles.  They wouldn't see him cower.  His pride was all he had left - but he had enough of that.'
 
Pg. 319 ''You filthy cur!' the sergeant exclaimed, the aubergine hue of his face deepening in the lantern light.  'Your soul to the devil, ye wicked Scotch dog!  Any you - ' He turned toward Grey, only to be interrupted by Grey's handkerchief, balled up and stuffed into his mouth.'

  1. I've heard good things about The Scottish Prisoner...but $13.99 for an e-book? Not bloody likely... haha. I am anxious to hear your thoughts on it!
