Teaser Tuesday: 7/27

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!
  • Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!
Today's teaser is from Fingersmith by Sarah Waters.
They hanged her, as the did murderesses then, on the roof of the Horsemonger Lane Gaol. Mrs. Sucksby stood and watched the drop, from the window of the room I was born in.

  4. While I've loved all of Sarah Waters's novels, I must admit Fingersmith is tied with Night Watch as my favorite. Hope you're enjoying it!

    My teaser, from an old YA fantasy series, is here.

  7. I've got this one on my TBR list already. Great teaser! Although I don't really see how anyone could watch a hanging.
