Tuesday Teaser, 10 November – The Private Papers of Eastern Jewel

teaser-tuesdayIt’s that time of week again for Should Be Reading’s fun meme Teaser Tuesdays.

So how does this work:

  • Grab your current book
  • 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!

Private PapersToday’s teaser comes from Maureen Lindley’s debut novel The Private Papers of Eastern Jewel

“’Life is about the journey we have to get through. It only slows us up to look back,’ she said. ‘Perhaps if you could accept the journey chosen for you, Yoshiko, you would find contentment.’” Pg. 72
(Sorry, I know it’s three sentences but I wanted to complete the passage.)

Thanks to the publisher for sending me this book to read/review.

What’s your tease for this Tuesday?

  1. I can almost agree with that. Interesting teaser. Here’s mine

  2. This sounds like an interesting book. Is the setting Asia, or are they transplants somewhere?
    Here’s my teaser

  3. That’s very interesting! I agree with the looking back thing but sometimes we do need to look back to our past to learn from it.

    Here’s mine:


  4. Nice teaser. The book seems interesting too =)

  5. Great teaser. This book sounds really good.

    Here’s my Teaser Tuesday.

  6. I totally disagree with that statement – how do you learn to prepare for your future tasks without learning from what happened before you? Interesting.

  7. Great teaser, I’ve found this to be true at times. My teaser is up at Calico Contemplations.

  8. I recently finished this book. I cannot wait to see your thoughts!

  9. True dat! And one of my mottos in life is:

    “it’s the direction, not the speed, that counts.”
