Teaser Tuesday (3)


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!

    OK, so here's my teaser for this week! It is from Anna Godbersen's Bright Young Things, and I just started it today:

    *****

    "They were all marching towards their own secret fates, and long before the next decade rolled around, each would escape in her own way-- one would be famous, one would be married, and one would be dead.


    That is what I want to tell you about: the girls with their short skirts and bright eyes and big-city dreams.


    The girls of 1929."

    *****

    Ah! I LOVE it!! OK, I know that's technically 3 sentences, but honestly, this was like the best Prologue to a book I've ever read. After reading and loving The Luxe I had to pick up another historical fiction drama by Anna Godbersen-- this time it is set in the Roaring 20's New York City, and I cannot wait to get into this book!

    So what teasers do the rest of my lovely readers have? Leave a link for me below!
