Teaser Tuesday's - The Dressmaker by Kate Alcott

Teaser Tuesday's is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. To play along, just do the following:

- Grab your current read 

- Open to a random page 

- Share two “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 list if they like your teaser. 

My teaser this week is from page 84 of Kate Alcott's The Dressmaker:


"Maybe you'll tell me the story behind it next time."
"Story?"
"There's always a story."

Musing Monday's - Book Length

Musing Monday's is hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading. This week’s musing asks:


What is the longest book you have ever read? How long did it take you to read it?


I'm not entirely positive about this answer.  I'm going to guess the later books in the Harry Potter series, though.  I remember the seventh book being near 800 pages and I think the sixth was just over 700.  I read these books within a few days of their original release dates (and a couple of times since) - so, fairly quickly.
