I’m currently reading Life in Medieval France by E.R. Chamberlin, and while interesting, it’s more like a textbook and not really good for teasing.  Instead, I’m going to share from a book I’ll be reading later in the week — The House on the Strand by Daphne Du Maurier.

“The first thing I noticed was the clarity of the air, and the sharp green colour of the land.  There was no softness anywhere.” (1)

I started Witch Week by Diana Wynne Jones last night and that’s where my teaser comes from this morning.

“At the end of breakfast, another rumor went round: The police had sent for tracker dogs.

A short while after this, Miss Hodge arrived, to find the school in an uproar.” (131)

This week, two teasers!

First up, The City & The City by China Mieville.

“I told Dhatt a place — I did not know the address, had to describe it in vague topography, which he recognised — a pieces of parkland walking distance from where Yolanda hid, to meet me at the end of the following day. “Anyone asks, tell them I’m working from the hotel. Tell them about all the ridiculous paperwork hoops they make us jump through in Besźel, that keeps me busy.”” (page 211)

Next, In Great Waters by Kit Whitfield.

“Henry could remember his own birth. Crushing pressure, heat, and then the contact with the sea, terrifyingly cold — but at the same time a release from constriction, the instant freedom of the skin.” (page 3)
