Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. The idea is to give everyone a look inside the book you’re reading.
1.) Grab your current read
2.) Open to a random page
3.) Share two teaser sentences from that page
4.) Share the title and author so that other participants know what you’re reading.
Be careful not to include spoilers. You don’t want to ruin the book for others!
I found myself reading three books this week which is odd since I tend to be a one book at a time person. When it came to down to picking one this morning, I couldn’t. So you’ll all be benefiting from my over indulgence down this week. A three for one special it is!
I began frequenting the beaches more and more, though at the time few women took an interest in fossils. It was seen as an unladylike pursuit, dirty and mysterious.
Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier, page 19. I’m really enjoying this book. The two women, Elizabeth Philpot and Mary Anning, are wonderfully rebellious for their time (around 1810) and I’m enjoying that aspect of the book.
Frodo felt sleep coming upon him, even as Gildor finished speaking. ‘I will sleep now,’ he said; and the Elf led him to a bower beside Pippen, and he threw himself upon a bed and fell at once into a dreamless slumber.
The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien, page 83. I’m participating in the LOTR Read-Along and have been trying to read only 2-3 chapters a night. So far I am succeeding but I don’t think I will be making it the whole month. I’m just about to start book two and I have a feeling I will be racing through to the end.
The image of the princess was not a typical illustration but rather an impression. From what Rafferdy understood, there were some illusionists who could hold an engraving plate in their hands and concentrate upon it, working an enhancement so that what they imagined in their minds appeared on the plate, rendered with an accuracy that caused the subject to appear clearer then in the most skillful painting.
The Magicians and Mrs. Quent by Galen Beckett, page 68 on my ereader. I was browsing the shelves yesterday in the bookstore and came across this once and decided to try it out. So far, it’s not too bad but moving a little slow. I hope the magic I’ve been promised shows up soon…

I love LOTR…and I really should read Remarkable creatures since I have heard so many good things about it.

Remarkable Creatures sounds right up my alley!
I’ll be racing to the end as well- I haven’t even started! Mysterious Creatures sounds wonderful- I can’t wait for your review.
Here’s my teaser. Have a good Tuesday!
REMARKABLE CREATURES on my TBR stack
Here’s mine from BRAVA, VALENTINE and I have 5 copies to give away.
I’m interested in Remarkable Creatures!
Wow, 3 books? How do you keep track of them at the same time. *shakes head* Here’s Mine
Well, it helps that the books I’m reading this time week are all incredibly different. Keeping track of characters/events is usually the reason I don’t read more than one book at a time. 🙂
All these books look terrific, and The Fellowship of the Ring is wonderful.
Lovely teasers. I want Remarkable Creatures. Mine is at The Crowded Leaf.
What an awesome teasers! LoTR – Love it!! And Remarkable Creatures is on my wish list. I’ve never heard of the last one, but must look into it more. 🙂
Here’s the link to mine:
