Teaser Tuesdays #9

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!

I have two teasers for you today.

I squeezed my hands together in my lap as we rode a few awkward moments in silence. Marcus tapped his fingers on his knee as though keeping time to music no one else could hear. Finally he turned to me and asked, "So, do you like living here in Mercy?"
31%, Sweet Mercy

Dimity glanced at Sophronia and said, "Oh, dear."
Sophronia smiled. "If you're afraid of falling, you could ride astride. It's much easier to hang on to a horse that way."
Dimity looked affronted at the very idea.
"It was only a suggestion."
"You're very calm."
Sophronia shrugged. "I'm overburdened by strange occurrences at the moment. I'll go next, it you like."
p. 52, Etiquette & Espionage (Finishing School #1) by Gail Carriger

I'm really looking forward to reading both of these! I've started Sweet Mercy, but not Etiquette & Espionage yet. Are you planning on reading either of these?
