Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted byMizB of Should Be Reading and it asks us to...

  • 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!us to...us to...

So which of the many books I am reading do I pick? Guess the audiobook is a little too difficult so here goes:

"Next, she tackled the second strip, deposited its soil into the first strip and mixed in spadefuls of compost: Go then, and multiply. Scrambled back muscles, jagged fingernails, a smell of turned earth, a gritty feel on her hands: unfamiliar sensations became friendly, part of a repertoire that she hugged to herself."

page 224, Consider the Lily by Elizabeth Buchan


  1. I've been in the garden, so I know the feeling well. Sounds a little different genre.

  2. It's a novel set in post WWI England, about a young nobleman who marries one of two cousins he met at a wedding. He is drawn to one, but marries the other because she has the money to save his estate. Unhappy, she finds happiness in restoring the garden.

  3. I can understand that. Thanks Shonna.
