Desperately Romantic Teaser

I got this idea from the wonderful Sullivan McPig over at - It should really be played on a Tuesday since it's called Teaser Tuesday but since I have started reading this great book on the weekend, I thought I would play it today. First, you post two 'teaser' sentence from a random page in the book you're currently reading and then the book's title and author. Want to play along?

"I was thinking of you and your brother, and wishing that I could see you and hoping so much that you were better: then I began to wonder how our three lives would run on together, and then, all of a sudden, I felt so strange!"

Page 257 of Desperate Romantics by Franny Moyle. It's about the Pre-Raphaelite art movement and I thought it would be a bit dry but it's really engagingly written. It was recently made into a tv series (as you can see from the book cover above).

@ Bodecea -

I'll check it out. Anything with axolotl roadkill in the title has got me curious :)

@ Bob -

I like murder mysteries. Does Mummy read Ian Rankin? A Brief History of Pants sounds good. When were pants invented?
