Teaser Tuesday


Sarah Waters

"Mrs Sucksby was a devil with her dander up.

She looked at Flora and tapped her slippered foot upon the rug, all the time rocking in her chair- that was a great creaking wooden chair, that no-one sat in save her- and beating her thick, hard hand upon my shaking back."

(Sarah Waters: Fingersmiths. 4)

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should Be Reading and this is how it works:

  • 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!

  1. Great teaser! I've seen the movie but not read this yet. Until last night I had never heard of having ones dander up, my mum used the phrase and I was like huh? Good to see it's a real phrase!

  2. Wow! The cover caught my eye while shelving this book tonight at the Library Bookstore where I work and then I see it here. Looks like an interesting read.

  3. Yeah, your mother knows her phrases! It´s a regular phrase in the Fingersmith, hope I won´t start using it after reading the book. Might be a fun facebook post though 😀 How´s the movie, the bbc adaptation, right?
