Teaser Tuesdays #15 - Chocolat by Joanne Harris

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.
Today, I'm continuing a book I started for the 24 Hour Read-A-Thon: Chocolat by Joanne Harris. I must say, casting Juliette Binoche in this book is brilliant, she fits the role perfectly!
"It melts ever so slightly on your tongue and tortures you with pleasure."
One line is enough to express so much - also, I can't open my book just now, so I only quoted what I recall reading earlier.
I hope you all have reading left over from the Read-A-Thon; You will find some good recommendations from my Readathon reading this week, and also Reviews of Maze Runner and Brandon Sanderson's The Way of Kings.
Pin It!


  1. Mmmmm chocolate *wonders if I can kick my husband out of bed to go buy me a snickers bar LOL* You're right,, just one sentence expresses so much. Thanks for sharing

    Come read my teaser from Noah by Jacquelyn Frank

  2. Oh, wow! Thanks for that, this is already on my TBR list and has just gone higher up as soon as Mum returns it. I loved the movie and the imagery in this teaser is fabulous.

    Here's mine http://bit.ly/aizG6n

  3. I loved the movie and the book.

  4. WOW! Makes my mouth water *opens Snickers*

    I think I'm going to read this next.

  5. I could do with some chocolate right now although I don't think there is any in the house dammit!

    My teaser is here

  6. I could eat chocolate every day all day! I have this book on my tbr list and can't wait to read it - I hope you enjoy it!

    Here's my teaser.

  7. I love your teaser...and it describes chocolat perfectly.

    I want to watch the movie.

  8. "tortures you with pleasure" - love this teaser :)

  9. I haven't seen the movie OR read the book! How sad is that? Guess I need to fix that! Great teaser! Thanks for coming by my site!
    The Delusional Diaries
    Hmmm...all of a sudden I'm craving chocolate...

  10. I loved this movie and didn't even realize it was a book until I saw the sequel in the bookstore. Great teaser! Mine is at The Crowded Leaf.

  11. I loved the book and movie version of this. Joanne Harris is a great writer

  12. Thanks for commenting everyone! I am now at or have visited all your blogs :)

    @Alayne - OMG there is a sequel? *eyes wide*

  13. Oh, that is such a teasing teaser!!! (Now I need to find a chocolate bar!)

  14. I most definitely have to get this one! Everyone raves about it! Thanks for the teaser!

    Yes, I DO have lots of books that I didn't finish during the readathon .. next time, I will be better prepared!

    The Maze Runner and The Way of Kings are both near the very top of my wishlist, so I must run off to see your reviews!

  15. That is really a terrific teaser! I've had this one on my TBR list for ages now. Loved the movie, so I really want to read the book.

  16. I don't recall EVER saying this about a novel before, but I loved the movie so much, I've been afraid to read the book. However, after this teaser, I've decided to reconsider. :)

  17. Great teaser and I love how it could almost be talking about anything! Thanks so much for sharing.

    My Teaser

  18. Chocolat is one of my all-time favorite books! You might want to see the movie after the book.


  19. This is a great book and the movie is just as amazing!

  20. I must be about the only person on the planet, who has not read this book, or seen the film.

    Your teaser was so great that I guess it just about sums the whole plot up, so I don't need to read it now.

    You just have no idea of the quantity of books I have in my 'To Be Read' pile, that I need to get through.

    Iwill never live long enough to finish them all, if I read one every day, and that just is not possible.

    I do have a life outside of books, well just about!

  21. One sentence instead of two! Awesome--it does say a lot all on its own. Great teaser!

  22. Hey there fellow read-a-thoner! I wish I'd gotten around to visiting more people that day, it all kind of went by in a blur!

    Great teaser, I definitely have a chocolate craving now!

    My teaser is here if you'd like to drop by.

  23. How very true! I'm really behind since I haven't read the book or watched the film.

  24. I enjoyed the movie...maybe I'll have to look into the book. Great pick!!!

  25. @jewelknits - Loved the Way of Kings, planning to re-read to get the nuances of the story.

    @jlshall, @VR - Its so good to know the movie was great (then again, wit h Johnny Depp, how could it be anything else? ;) )

    @Pooch, @Aisle B - aha, the category of people who I wanted to talk to!! I must watch movie you say? excellent!

    @fiction - haha, you are missing out on the story, it is more than just chocolate :)

  26. A perfect read given that it's world chocolate week.
