Teaser Tuesday 9/11/10

Happy Tuesday to everyone! We're 40% through the working week already! My teaser this week comes from Luxe by Anna Godbersen- it's probably more of a YA read, but this series appealed to me when I heard it described as the 'Gossip Girl of the 1800's'- what's not to like about that? The teaser is from... Continue Reading →

Teaser Tuesday 12/10/10

Happy Tuesday, I hope you're having a good or better day! Another busy day, my teaser for this week comes from Trust Me, I'm a Junior Doctor by Max Pemberton- a UK doctor's diary on the first year as a doctor. It's funny, witty and sad at the same time. "So, what branch of medicine are... Continue Reading →

Teaser Tuesday 5/10/10

Another Tuesday again! I hope you're having a good day- all I've been wanting to do this week is sit down and read as I've got two very good books on the go (Diaries: The Python Years by Michael Palin and Barbed Wire and Roses by Peter Yeldham). My teaser this week comes from Barbed Wire... Continue Reading →

Teaser Tuesday 28/9/10

Another Tuesday, another teaser! I'm reading something a bit lighter this week - Homecoming by Cathy Kelly (still going on the Michael Palin though...it's a hefty book!). A light Irish fiction, it centres around four women who live near each other. (You can't probably tell I'm not very far into this!) This teaser is from page... Continue Reading →

Teaser Tuesday and a tantrum

First thing today is Teaser Tuesday: This week's teaser comes from The Wind-up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami, p 23: "Noboru Wataya, /Where are you? / Did the wind-up bird /Forget to wind your spring?" OK, so it's technically a poem- but Noboru is both a man and a cat, so I think he's forgiven 🙂 Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly... Continue Reading →

Teaser Tuesday 10/8/10

Finally, a Tuesday I'm home early enough to post! This week's teaser comes from The Chocolate Run  by Dorothy Koomson (courtesy of a 3 for 2 at Borders), which I'm finding pleasant but a bit boring as there's no subplots so far. Just about Amber, her hookups with her friend Greg and friends Jen and... Continue Reading →

Teaser Tuesday 6/7/10

Wow! How time flies when you're having fun or working, working, working. (Way too much overtime today!) I've finally finished Brick Lane (review coming soon) and was in the mood for something not too taxing. Enter Becoming Scarlett  by Ciara Geraghty.  (I read Saving Grace earlier this year and found it good chick-lit with substance).  Today's teaser... Continue Reading →

Teaser Tuesday 29/6/10

I really enjoyed my Teaser Tuesday last week, so I'm back again for more. This week's teaser comes to you from Brick Lane by Monica Ali: p228: 'Those bloody health inspectors,' Razia said. 'Closed the bloody factory down.' Once again, I don't know anything about the factory or health inspectors (or who Razia is), but... Continue Reading →

Teaser Tuesday 22/6/10

My first Teaser Tuesday comes from The Help by Kathryn Stockett (great book so far by the way). No long post today because I'm so tired in my new position at work (lots of running and overtime)- sorry, I'm sure I'll adapt soon! Page 88: I look in their smiling faces, at their hope for me....
