Teaser Tuesdays (9)

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 "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!

My Teaser:

"Outside the salty breeze tousled my hair, and I listened with rapture to the music of the birds crooning from the treetops. Once by the shore, I stooped upon the sand and plucked a smooth seashell from the shallow waves."

~pg. 190 - Scones and Sensibility by Lindsay Eland

Please keep in mind that this book is Middle Grade fiction AND the narrator is a twelve year old girl. Now does this teaser impress you? It impressed me! When this title made a reference to my favorite classic author, Jane Austen, I knew for a fact I'd have to read it. As soon as I dove in and found out what a delight it is to read, I was smitten! This book is fabulous. I hereby declare it one of my new favorite books and vow to buy my own copy that I shall dog ear incessantly.
