Teasers Tuesday!!

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!

This is my FIRST Teasers Tuesday Post and I am so happy about it. Thank You MizB for hosting this :)
My teaser -

Lady Russell felt obliged to oppose her dear Anne's known wishes. It would be too much to expect Sir Walter to descend into a small house in his own neighbourhood. Anne herself would have found the mortification of it more than she foresaw, and to Sir Walter's feelings they must have been dreadful.
- p. 15, “Persuasion” by Jane Austen

I have a question for all of you Jane Austen readers :)
Which is your favorite Jane Austen novel?

Persuasion is my very first Austen novel, and I like it so far. I am just curious as to which is the best out of the 6 completed works by this author.
Hope you have a great day!

I love Emma! She's just such a great character - snobby and scheming, but well-meaning and endearing, too. Pride and Prejudice is another fave. Hope you enjoy the rest of Persuasion! :)

I don't think I've read Persuasion yet but I really love austen. You should try Pride and Prejudice too if you like her, though to be honest I actually like Sense and Sensibility more.

I enjoyed Persuasion! But I think my favourite is Pride and Prejudice... not that I've read many of Austen's books though. ;)

Most favorite: Pride and Prejudice. Then either Emma or Sense and Sensibility.

Oh yay, your first Austen! I've only read Northanger Abbey and Emma. Loved both really so I hope you'll enjoy this one well enough to read more!
