Teaser Tuesdays asks us to:
Grab our current read
Open to a random page
Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like our teaser!
My teaser comes from my current read. I am nearly finished with it. Just collecting my thoughts fro my review.
“I was chopping vegetables in the kitchen when I heard voices outside our front door —a woman’s, bright as polished brass, and a man’s, low and dark like the wood of the table I was working on.”
P. 1, Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
I’ve often thought about reading that book…and didn’t it end up being a movie with Scarlett Johannson?
Love your blog! I’d love for you to stop by and visit mine…

Oh yes this is the movie (along with Lost in Translation) that put Scarlett Johannson on the map.
Thanks! I’ll surely visit your blog. 🙂

I listened to this on audiobook, and really enjoyed it much more than I expected to. I hope you’re liking it!

I enjoyed it but not as much as I had hoped. But I am glad that you love it. 🙂
Great teaser, I’ve read this book.
Hope you enjoyed it when you read it!
I’ve been wanting to read this book. Your teaser is a good reminder why.

I on the other hand probably wouldn’t have read this book if it hadn’t been for the Orange July Challenge.
Wow. Very creative writing. Makes me wonder if the whole book is like that.

Yes Chevalier has a way with words but not the whole book is like that. There are patches of some very simple, straight, frill free writing as well.
have a wonderfull tuesday!

I had heard a lot of good things about Girl with a Pearl Earring too. It had generated a lot of buzz when it first came out especially after the movie released.
I loved that book! Our bookclub read it and had a fun discussion 🙂

I have mixed feelings about Girl with a Pearl Earring. But there is certainly a lot of discussion material in here.
