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!

Today’s tease comes from Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear. Book Club Girl is hosting a Maisie read-along and there’s still time to sign up. So, if you’re mad about Maisie or you would like to be head on over to her blog and sign up.

“Frankie Dobbs always said that when she was reading Maisie had “cloth ears.” She always seemed instinctively to know the time and when she would need to stop reading to run an errand or complete a chore, but as far as Frankie was concerned, “Those ears don’t even work when you’ve yer nose in a book!” And he loved her all the more for it.”

How do you not love a book where the main character loves to read? I know it always wins me over.
