After a spate of Young Adult, Fantasy, and dystopia, reading Lady Audley’s Secret is a pleasant change of pace. It’s fast-moving but extremely descriptive at the same time, and I am loving it so far 🙂 .
Here is the first paragraph of the book that describes Audley Court:
Audley Court lay down in a hollow, rich with fine old timber and luxuriant pastures.
You came upon it through an avenue of limes, bordered on either side by meadows, over the high hedges of which the cattle looked inquisitively at you as you passed, wondering, perhaps what you wanted; for there was no thoroughfare, and unless you were going to the Court, you could have no business in that sheltered roadway.
~ Lady Audley’s Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon
Doesn’t this paragraph just have you all dreamy?
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!
