  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

For half an hour they poked about in a happy dusty dream, through the junk and broken furniture and ornaments. It was like reading the story of somebody’s life, Jane thought, as she gazed at the tiny matchstick masts of the ship sailing motionless for ever in the green glass bottle. All these things had been used once, had been part of every day in the house below. Someone had slept in the bed, anxiously watched the minutes on the clock, pounced joyfully on each magazine as it arrived. But all those people were long dead, or gone away, and now the oddments of their lives were piled up here, forgotten. She found herself feeling rather sad.


  1. It is a bit sad indeed. I have heard good things about this author!

    My teaser comes from The Night Villa by Carol Goodman

  2. Sad, but its a teaser and I'd want to read more. thanks for this author.

  3. I really want to read this series someday! Thanks for sharing. My teaser is at The Crowded Leaf.

  4. Great teaser, but I see why she feels a little sad.

  5. That's a great passage! I just checked out The Dark is Rising in audiobook format from my library but I didn't like the narrator and decided there was no way I could listen to the whole thing, so I'm going to check the book out instead. My teaser is from Tyger Tyger.

  6. sad... good teaser.

    a little late but here's mine plus a giveaway of The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas, longlisted for the 2010 Booker prize.

  7. That part was sad but I really liked it. Summer Ross I hope you enjoy them if you try it. The first book is a little slow so most people skip right the sequel.

    Deepali: Finding a map from Arthurian times to a grail.

    Nymeth: I hope the sequel goes faster than this one...

  8. Makes me sad reading the teaser too.


Hope you enjoyed my musings and I would love to hear what you think about them!
