teaser tuesday

Here's how to play.

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
 (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
 From:  The Other Half by Charlotte Vassell

from page 101:

Caius pulled the car up in front of the Hesperides Gallery.  It was on one of those quaint little streets that tourists walk along and think is terribly charming whereas proper Londoners just think it's terrible.  The shop across the road sold antique chandeliers for the price of a terraced house in Liverpool, and another sold moth-eaten taxidermy specimens of nearly extinct predators - a snarling wolf graced their window - and a third sold exorbitant room scents, although it tried to look like an alien pharmacy.

I love that tourists love it, but residents think "it's terrible." I know that feeling!
