Teaser Tuesday: Speaking From Among the Bones by Alan Bradley

It's Tuesday, so it's time for another teaser!!

Last week, I found out that I didn't actually read one of the books in the Flavia de Luce series (apart from the latest one, which isn't in the e-library yet, so I'll have to wait), and went about remedying that immediately.

Without further ado, my teaser:

"Where was I going to find a decent lubricating oil in the bottom of a reeking tomb at two-thirty in the morning? 
The answer came to me almost as quickly as the question."
I'm just going to say, yes, it's a tomb, yes she found the oil (although you probably won't be able to guess what it is), and that Flavia is, at the time of this book, only eleven. Make of that what you will.

What is your teaser this fine week?

And may everyone have a Merry Christmas!!
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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!


  1. Merry Christmas to you too! I haven't read anything by this author--not one book in the series, which I know will surprise some people. I should give it a try.

  2. Have a great holiday!

  3. I'm wondering what she needed the oil for! Merry Christmas to you and all your readers as well. Here's my teaser/intro: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-15o


I really do appreciate all comments, and I'll try my best to reply within 24 hours!
