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!
“It was a library. High pieces of furniture, of black violet ebony inlaid with brass, supported upon their wide shelves a great number of books uniformly bound. They followed the shape of the room, terminating at the lower part in huge divans, covered with brown leather, which were curved, to afford the greatest comfort. Light movable desks, made to slide in and out at will, allowed one to rest one’s book while reading. “

“Mehrunissa carefully chose a set of sunset-pink pearls. A broad belt studded with hundreds of pearls went around her slender waist. Armlets were tied at the ends of her sleeves. A round gold disc, encrusted with pearls hanging from a slender gold chain, was pinned to her hair, the disc dangling in the center of her forehead. Ten pearl bangles went on each wrist, and finally a small, beautiful, perfect pearl was put in her pierced nose. “
