Teaser Tuesdays

Another day, another fun meme :)

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 the page
  • Be careful not to include spoilers
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers

My teasers

"That is how Nelly would murder, competently and precisely, the way she cooks, following recipes learned so long ago she does not experience them as knowledge at all. At this moment she would gladly cut Virginia's throat like a turnip because Virginia neglected her own duties and now she, Nelly Boxall, a grown woman, is being punished for serving pears."
