Regency Buck by Georgette Heyer
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Just do the following:
1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3. Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
4. 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!)
5. Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

What I think of it so far:
Im’ barely past the first page, so I cannot comment. However, Stephen Fry lists one of Ms Heyer’s novels among his favourites, so she can’t be all that bad as Mr Fry is never wrong!
Top Ten Tuesday
Top Ten Favourite Covers
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created and hosted at Broke and Bookish.
I thought that for this week I’d showcase some of the the most stunning covers I’ve come across recently. Many of them have been featured as my entry for the Cover Crazy meme in which I participate each Monday, but some others are just books I noticed or read that have, I think, striking and/or beautiful covers. I hope you’ll like them too:
