Now, you know the rules: open your current read, pick 2 teaser sentences to share and don’t spoil the story! But do make sure you tell us a bit about the book.
This morning, my teaser is from Heresy by S. J. Parris. I am devouring this one — about a renegade monk and some murders at Oxford College — and I chose this Teaser from early in the book. It shows just how little it took to bring down the Inquisition:
“As a matter of curiosity, why did you abandon the monastary?”
“I was caught reading Erasmus in the privy.”
Not familiar with Erasmus? He was a classical scholar who frequently criticized the Catholic Church and was responsible for some very familiar phrases we use today, such as “opening Pandora’s Box.”
What is teasing YOU this week?
