Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should  Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:


 (This is my first Teaser Tuesday!)


  • 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!
"The pilgrims and patients, closely packed on the hard seats of a third-class carriage, were just finishing the 'Ave maris Stella,' which they had begun to chant on leaving the terminus of the Orleans line, when Marie, slightly raised on her couch of misery and restless with feverish impatience, caught sight of the Paris fortifications through the window of the moving train.

'Ah the fortifications!'"

p.8, "The Three Cities Trilogy:  Lourdes, Complete" by Emile Zola
