Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme (it also happens to be my favourite!) hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading and anyone can play along!

  • Grab your current read
  • flip to a random page
  • select 2 teaser sentences from anywhere on that page
  • Try not to include any spoilers!  Sometimes this is really really hard!
  • Do, though, include the title and author so we can add the book to our ever growing TBR piles!

In honor of its 20th anniversary I am always happy to celebrate my favourite escape read in the universe... Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.  I am currently reading it for the 3rd time in 10 years and never tire of it. 

There is a brand new 20th anniversary version of the book that is due to release on July 5th, and has plenty of extras, kind of like what is in the Outlandish Companion.. which is AWESOME.

Here is my teaser:

"'A bayonet!"  I exclaimed.  "And why didn't you tell me?" 
    He shrugged, and stopped short with a mild grunt of pain.  "I felt it go in, but I couldna tell how bad it was;  it didna hurt that much." '

I love Outlander! I always find myself accidentally emulating the Scottish accent after rereading it though, haha.

3 times...way to go Lisa! I have the series but have yet to open them up and read :o If it's good enough for 3 reads in a decade, I better get moving, it seems I'm missing out on something rather great!
