Teaser Tuesday

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, spoiler free, “teaser” sentences
  • Share the title & author
“And Clarissa remembered having to persuade her not to denounce him at family  prayers – which she was capable of doing with her daring, her recklessness, her melodramatic love of being the centre of everything and creating scenes, and it was bound, Clarissa used to think, to end in some awful tragedy; her death; her martyrdom; instead of which she had married, quite unexpectedly, a bald man with a large buttonhole who owned, it was said, cotton mills at Manchester. And she had five boys!” (p.202, Print). 
From Mrs. Dalloway by Virgina Woolf.

  1. This is one I’ve always wanted to read.

    • I finally had the chance to read it for a class and I am glad I did! I just finished it and want to start again because I know it is one of those books that will have something new jump out with every reading.

  2. Great teaser! We’ve got a Virginia Woolf diary entry up on The Vintage Reader today. My teaser is HERE, if you’d care to visit!

  3. Gasp! That’s a really long sentence! I enjoyed it though.
    Here’s mine: Sandy’s Teaser

  4. “A large buttonhole” – what does that mean? I assume in his jacket, but that’s an odd thing to notice, isn’t it?
