Teaser Tuesday (1/12)

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!
Rebecca (by Daphne DuMaurier) is certainly living up to its promise so far! I'm zooming through it, already more than halfway through, which is fast for me! Here's my quote:

I wanted to go on sitting here, not talking, not listening to the others, keeping the moment precious for all time, because we were peaceful all of us, we were content and drowsy even as the bee who droned above our heads. In a little while it would be different, there would come to-morrow, and the next day, and another year. And we would be changed perhaps, never sitting quite like this again. Some of us would go away, or suffer, or die, the future stretched away in front of us, unknown, unseen, not perhaps what we wanted, not what we planned. This moment was safe though, this could not be touched. (p 99)
Sorry, I know it's longer than two sentences, but I couldn't find a place to break it up. Enjoy!


  1. Ooh, Rebecca! I love how she phrases things. *agrees with this teaser*

    And thanks for dropping by my teaser! :)

  2. I loved this book in high school. Thanks for making me want to seek it out again!
