Teaser Tuesdays: October 13, 2009



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly book meme, hosted by mizb 17 at 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 it for other readers)


*Share the title and author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser for today is . . . . .



"Though I imagine that if I am here, taking Courtney's place, then does it not follow that Courtney must be there, taking mine?  What a notion!  However, the only possibility is that she was taking my place rather than is taking my place, for indeed if I am now almost two hundred years after the time I let behind, then anyone alive in 1813 has long since ceased to be."


Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Viera Rigler, page 73.

Please leave me a comment with your teasers if you don't have a blog, or leave me your link if you've posted. Happy reading!

Great teaser!

Lorin said...

Ah, one of those books you have to have actually read Jane Austen to get. Those always go right over my head!

Andrea said...

Is Lizzie the narrator, I wonder? Great teaser.
Here's mine.

Crystal said...

Great teaser - I have read Confessions, but haven't read Rude Awakenings yet.

Calico Crazy said...

Interesting, I will have to add it to my TBR. Mine is here.

Lori said...

Lorin, I think you could read this book without reading Jane Austen to "get it". But you definitely need to read the first one (Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict) to understand what's going on with the characters.

Andrea, Lizzie is not the narrator. The narrator is Jane Mansfield, a Regency-era lady, who we "meet" in Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict, the first book in this semi-series.

Crystal, I am enjoying this book. Different from the first. I have had to read certain passages 2 or 3 times to understand what Jane/Courtney is describing (things like phones, DVDs, etc that we take for granted are being described by someone from 1813!)

I'll be honest and say it's kind of confusing. I couldn't really grasp what she was saying! :-/

How funny that we not only teased the same book, but the same sentences! How ironic.
