Teaser Tuesday - A Discovery of Witches

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* 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 and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!

So, this is the third week that I've been reading this book on Teaser Tuesday, but I'm almost done, so we only get one more Tease from A Discovery of Witches.  In this scene, Matthew and Diana are discussing an unexpected discovery with Diana's aunt Sarah.

The Tease:
 ""Sarah," I said impatiently.  "Daddy couldn't have wanted me to go back in the past and get the manuscript.  What did he think, that I'd timewalk and snatch it before it was bewitched?  What if I ran into Matthew by accident?  Surely that would mess up the time-space continuum."
"Oh, relativity," Sarah's voice was dismissive.  "As an explanation that only goes so far.'"
 -A Discovery of Witches, by Deborah Harkness

What's your Tease?


  1. Sounds so great :)

    Here's mine:

  2. Only so far, huh? LOL Heard so much about this book


  3. Fast-paced with an underlying social theme and a nod to Darwin, a world of four sentient species sharing the famous library and fragile peace makes for a fun start to an engaging tale. Diana the intellectual witch and her undead protector are a fine team escorting the audience through lethal maize of paranormal who want them dead.
