Teaser Tuesday - How To Be A Brit by George Mikes

I'm here for Teaser Tuesday, but I might disappear for the rest of the week, because my finals have just started, and I am much less prepared than before. I spent all the time before my exams preparing for a competition (we got second place!), so exactly 0% of the time was actually spent studying.

I got this book yesterday, when I was feeling stress (I now see the point of emotional shopping). I figured that since I love Guy Browning, I should like this too. So far, it hasn't disappointed, though I haven't been able to read much.

My teaser:

"The trouble with tea is that originally, it was quite a good drink.  
So a group of the most eminent British scientists put their heads together and made complicated biological experiments to find a way of spoiling it." 
What is your teaser this week?

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. I love tea! My favorite is Vanilla Chai :) I hope you can stop by:



  2. Oh God, this sounds hilarious :)Great choice!

    Here is my teaser for the week.

  3. Isn't that how it always goes - take something good and IMPROVE it out of all recognition. My YA teaser this week comes from Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan. Look for my review on Thursday. Happy reading!

  4. Sounds enjoyable. Here's mine: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-19D

  5. Sounds like a book with dry British humor. Love it!
    My Tuesday post features GIRL IN HYACINTH BLUE.

  6. I've always been a bit (okay, so maybe more than a bit) obsessed with Brits. Definitely adding this to my wishlist!

    1. Haha, I'm not at the obsessed stage (I hope), but I grew up on Mr. Bean, so I've always had a soft spot for British humour. I was so surprised the first time someone read Terry Pratchett/Guy Browning (there were two people) and told me they didn't find the books funny!


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