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!
My Teaser this week is from Love Nina by Nina Stibbe
So we’ll carry on with the swing-top even though the swingy bit has disappeared (must’ve fallen in) and it’s just a big hole. MK doesn’t care about having all our peelings and fag ends on display.
I’ve now got into the rhythm of this book and worked out who the characters are: MK (Mary-Kay) is the mother that Nina is employed by, to look after her two children, Sam and Will.
At the time Nina is employed Mary-Kay is the editor of London review of Books and their regular visitors include Alan Bennett who always appears to come armed with his top cooking tips for Nina. This book is making me smile with her fresh look at life and haphazard approach to running a household.
