Teaser Tuesday - July 21

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Here's how it works:
-grab your current read
-open to a random page
-share two teaser sentences from somewhere on the page (avoid spoilers!)
-be sure to include the title and author so other TT participants can add the book to their tbr list if they like your teaser
-leave a comment with your link at Should Be Reading

My Teaser:
"As a couple, there is some sense about us that feels like risk, like adventure, like the tight, sharp bubbles of a good Prosecco. Even when we bewilder each other, make each other screaming crazy, there's a bright metal ring to us like the resonance of something gold and something silver tumbling fast across wet stones. It feels as if we're living on the eve of a rapture." (page 91)

My virtual vacation in Italy continues. I think I want to stay forever...


  1. An intriguing teaser. I love your Virtual Vacation idea.

  2. I have been meaning to read this book for years! Thanks for the reminder.

    Mine is here!

  3. Oh. That sounds...romantic? Passion? Love!

  4. So many emotions...so passionate...so Italian!! I love it!!

  5. I just added this my list recently since I pretty much love anything Venetian!

  6. That is wonderful - definitely one for the wishlist.

  7. There are several similes in those two sentences, and it's very descriptive and inventive. I'm not sure I understand, though - I'd probably have to read the whole page for context. Thanks for sharing your teaser!

  8. Very very nice teaser!


  9. Verity - I'm so enjoying this virtual vacation! I'm trying to think of some way to make an event or challenge out of it.

    Marg - Hope you can get to it soon. It'll make you feel like you're in Italy!

    Guatami - It is, it is!

    Ivy - It's amazing! A middle aged woman falls for a perfect stranger, sells her house in the US, and moves to Venice to marry him...and it's non-fiction!

    Staci - It's such a fun book. I think you'd like it!

    Stacybuckeye - If you like Venice, then this book is for you!

  10. Fleurfisher - Reading this book is the next best thing to visiting Venice!

    Dar - There are lots of passages like this - I love them!

    Darlene - ...and so much fun, too!

    Celi.a - A middle aged woman has taken a chance on finding love. She's given up her job, sold her house, and moved to a new country to be with a man. They have some 'adjustment' issues, but are trying to work them out. All this set against the beautiful backdrop of Venice!

    Jaime - Thanks!

  11. I enjoyed visiting Venice reading The Glassblower of Murano and am excited to visit again. This book sounds like a good one!

  12. Terri B. - I'll definitely look into The Glassblower of Murano. My time in Italy has been so much fun! Thanks for the suggestion.
