Teaser Tuesday ♡ – Week 56


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!

This week’s teaser comes from “Gilt” by Katherine Longshore:

She sat and laid her childlike hands  over the lions’ heads on the arms of the chair.

“Not like our wobbly old stools”, she said, caressing the golden mane.

“Or splintery benches”, I agreed, risking a seat in the other chair. I stretched my ragged slippers toward the fire.

Few had access to the duchess’s chambers. Close to two hundred nieces, nephews, cousins, and staff lived at Norfolk House. Only select family members and the duchess’s most trusted servants were allowed into her apartments. The rest of us did our best to stay out of her way. I stared up at the ceiling and wondered how it felt to have people care enough about you to avoid your presence.

 

What are you reading this Tuesday?
