Teaser Tuesday

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!
" 'Mr. Gibson, I daresay you'll be surprised, I'm sure I am at-at what I want to say; but I think it's the part of an honorable man, as you said yourself, sir, a year or two ago, to-to speak to the father first, and as you, sir, stand in the place of a father to Miss Kirkpatrick, I should like to express my feelings, my hopes, or perhaps I should say wishes, in short-'
'Miss Kirkpatrick?' said Mr. Gibson, a good deal surprised."
--Wives and Daughter by Elizabeth Gaskell


  1. Hope you like Wives & Daughters! Have you seen/do you plan to see the BBC miniseries? Its brilliant.

    I like North & South much better, but still enjoyed this book quite a bit.

  2. omg how far are you in it? oh, maybe you just opened to a random page :))

  3. @Allison:I do plan on seeing the BBC Mini-series. I also want to read North & South. So far I am greatly enjoying Wives and Daughters.
    @Katherine: Don't worry it was just a random page.


Don't hesitate to leave a comment I love hearing from you~! Because I am terrible at remembering to give out awards after people graciously give them to me, I have now made my blog an award free zone like so many others. I thank you for thinking of me though.
