Teaser Tuesday #13

We love the practice of teasing others with snippets from our books. Here’s what we’re reading right now:

ChaucerianGirl is reading Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.

“Conventionality is not morality. Self-righteousness is not religion. To attack the first is not to assail the last. To pluck the mask from the face of the Pharisee, is not to lift an impious hand to the Crown of Thorns.”                  –Preface (2nd Edition)

Jehara is reading I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith.

“After a few minutes I seemed to live in every inch of my body as fully as I usually do in my head and my hands and my heart. I had the fascinating feeling that I could think as easily with my limbs as with my brain-and suddenly the whole of me thought that Topaz’s nonsense about communing with nature isn’t nonsense after all. The warmth of the sun felt like enormous hands pressing gently on me, the flutter of the air was like delicate fingers.”

Margot is reading the first book in a new mystery series: Original Sin – A Sally Sin Adventure by Beth McMullen.

“I know I’m not crazy. I know this because it said so in my file, which I stole out of Director Gray’s office on a drunken dare from a guy who eventually disappeared in Somalia.”

That’s all for this Tuesday. What are you reading? Anything you can tease us with?

About Margot

I'm also known as Joyfully Retired. I love to talk. I love to talk about books I've read, movies I've seen, places I've traveled to, people (especially my children and grandchildren), and Food. On the Quirky Girls Read blog I'm trying to read all the books that have won the major awards and then, of course, talk about them.
