Thursday Tea is a weekly meme hosted by yours truly. To play along, all you need is some tea, a book, and the will to answer some very simple questions: what tea are you drinking (and do you like it)? What book are you reading (and do you like it)? Tell us a little about your tea and your book, and whether or not the two go together.
The tea: Another cup of Chai White. I’m getting a little bored of it, actually, but it’s the only decaffeinated tea I have at the moment, and since I’m trying to cut back on caffeine, well. Nothing much else I can do, except maybe drink less coffee?
Here’s a summary (from the back of the book):
Strange things are happening behind Jed and Lizzie’s house. The ghostly figure of a boy appears out of thin air and vanishes again. Who is he? What does he want?
Desperately searching for answers, they make a shocking discovery. One that uncovers a devastating chain of events that began 121 years earlier– with a secret machine of extraordinary powers and a boy trapped in time.
Now, as the past and present threaten to collide, Jed and Lizzie are thrown into a deadly struggle that could change the world for ever…
Do they go together? Oh, absolutely. I always associate the Victorians with tea, especially tea with lots of frills and lace strung around it. Now that I think of it, perhaps I should have used a fancier cup.
What are you drinking/reading this Thursday?
