Tuesday Teasers



Tuesday Teasers is hosted by Should Be Reading. The rules are as follows:


Grab your current read and let the book fall open to a random page. Share two sentences somewhere between lines 7 and 12 and the title of the book that you’re getting the teaser from. Please avoid spoilers! Read the official Tuesday Teaser Rules.


I'm currently reading a middle grade/YA novel called The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart. It's a cute, easy read with just the right amount of quirkiness to appeal to adults and kids alike. From page 236:

Mr. Curtain's Chair had been rolling closer, slowly, almost imperceptibly, so that now their faces were very near to each other. "It is a strange coincidence, is it not, that two such gifted children should be admitted to the Institute at the very same time, and that they should be such close friends?"


I borrowed this book from my daughter - I was drawn in by the cover. The author has an interesting and interactive website promoting this charming series (did not know it was a series until I visited the site) and I will definitely check out the other books.

I have read the first two books in the series, but haven't got around to the third. My daughter loved this series! Here is my teaser for this week.
