So here is the premise behind Teaser Tuesday:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • 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!
  • Please avoid spoilers!
  • Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend. I have to admit I am worn out and in need of another day off! I had a nice time visiting with my godson (21 months) but boy is he a handful. Then last night if you haven’t read my previous post yet, our air conditioner went out. To say it is hot here is an understatement. I am hoping that gets fixed by the time I come home from work tonight.

    So I am in the final 100 pages of Little Women. I am hoping to finish the book in the next day or two. I was hoping to finish this past weekend, but didn’t realize how active a 21 month old really is and there was no chance in even reading 1 chapter! So I’m hoping this is the last teaser from Little Women as I am ready to move onto another book and I’m sure yall are ready for a new teaser as well.

    I can’t argue about it, I only know that it’s the way of the world; and people who set themselves against it, only get laughed at for their pains. I don’t like reformers, and I hope you will never try to be one.
    ~p 288, Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

      Wow – it has been quite a while since I’ve read Little Women – that and Pride and Prejudice were some favorites growing up. . . my family read them together before bedtime. :)

      Here’s my Teaser! ~ Wendi

      @Deanna – Thank you for your honesty. I am “getting” through this book but I have to admit it is not a favorite. I think if she would have stopped at the end of Part 1, I would have liked it more. I feel so guilty about not loving this book especially when so many others have loved it.

      I’ve never read it – a shame, I know!

      I’ll take all the teasers you’ve got from “Little Women”! It was always one of my favorites – guess I read it at a very impressionable age. But I could never decide whether I wanted to be Jo or Amy!

    • Ryan says...

      I loved this book growing up but I didn’t like it as much when I got older. Not really sure why. I think I need to revisit it sometime soon. Thanks for the teaser.

    • The Blonde Diaries says...

      @JLS Hall – you know, in Part I I really hated Amy and loved Jo. Now that I’m reading Part II and Amy has grown up she is starting to grow on me while Jo bugs me. I’m not sure what I’ll be feeling by the end of it all.

      Thank you for visiting my blog. :) Awesome Teaser. I adore Little Women! Happy Reading. :)

    • Deanna/ibeeeg says...

      I am so glad to read what you have to say…
      ((I feel so guilty about not loving this book especially when so many others have loved it.))
      I too felt the same way.

    • Jenn says...

      Not one of my favourites either, mainly due to it’s length (but then I read it when I was in grade 9 and didn’t really have the patience for it). I started with the picture book version before graduating to the real thing. Now I see they’ve released a graphic novel version…

      I love your header design!

      Thanks for stopping by!

      It has been ages since I read Little Women. I probably should add it to my pile, since it is one that I want to re-read. Good teaser!!
