Teaser Tuesday: A Tyranny of Petticoats

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature, hosted by Jenn at Books and a Beat.

I have a secret.

It tastes like the sweet lemonade they served at last night's ball and smells of pipe tobacco. It sounds like the waltz we danced to and feels like the press of his hand against mine through my white satin glove.

  1. Great teaser. I've never thought to describe a secret that way. My teaser this week comes from a soon-to-be-released fantasy - Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet by Charlie N. Holmberg. Happy reading!

  2. I can't decide if I want to read this book or not. I've seen a lot of people say good things about it, but I'm not a huge fan of short stories. I may give it a shot anyway - I think my library has it.
    Here's my teaser: https://kourtnireads.wordpress.com/2016/06/21/teaser-tuesday-621/

    1. I'm loving it so far. The first three stories were all great. I have high hopes for the others. My review will be up next week.

  3. +JMJ+

    I've never paused to think about what my own secrets (or those I've received from others) taste, smell, and feel like . . . Thinking about it now, it makes sense that some that taste better than others! =)

    Thanks for the teaser. Here is mine: http://shreddedcheddar.blogspot.com/2016/06/jmj-teaser-of-year-read-other-two.html
