Teaser Tuesdays #37

 
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!


From Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen:


"The circumstances of the morning had led Catherine's feelings through the varieties of suspense. security, and disappointment: but they were now safely lodged in perfect bliss; and with spirits elated to rapture, with Henry at her heart, and Northanger Abbey on her lips, she hurried home to write her letter. Mr. and Mrs. Morland, relying on the discretion of the friends to whom they had already entrusted their daughter, felt no doubt of the propriety of an acquaintance which had been formed under their eye, and sent, therefore, by return of post, their ready consent to her visit in Gloucestershire." 



  
From The Comet's Curse by Dom Testa:
 

"The wall across from the lift opening had been vandalized with a large red marker. The words screamed out at Gap and Channy, and shock gripped them:

THIS IS A DEATH SHIP!"

  1. Yikes! A death ship sounds gripping. Great teasers! The classics are always wonderful.
