Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from - that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

She was no horsewoman and only came hawking because it was the proper thing to do, and as the heir to the throne - well, in Protestant eyes anyway - she must be seen regularly close to the existing incumbent. Or as close as she dared to come.

From To Shield the Queen by Fiona Buckley, p. 42.

Good Teaser. I really like your 101 things in 1001 days, too. That is a great idea.

"Dumpty started off with extortion and robbery on a small scale - he trained up a team of spiders to scare little girls away from their curds and whey, which he'd pick up and sell on the black market. Then he moved on to blackmail - the nastiest game."

From M is for Magic by Neil Gaiman, pg.11.
