Today I’ll try Teaser Tuesdays- I got convinced by reading Marie’s wonderful blog, The Burton Review …
Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should be Reading:
♦Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page.
♦Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
♦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 recommendatons if they like the teaser you’ve given!
♦Please avoid spoilers!
From: Louis XIV by Vincent Cronin
‘Louis watched the meeting of his two cousins with special interest for he knew, as all the Court knew, that the KingMademoiselle really wanted to marry was the King of France. As a girl of eleven she had taken Louisn out of his cradle, dandled him and called him “my little husband”; Anne had said, “You’ll be my daughter-in-law.”
So far, I love this book which reads more like a novel than a history book.
Here’s a teaser from another book I’m reading : Nefertiti, by Michelle Moran
‘We both looked at Amunotep in his dazzling chariot, racing Nefertiti and his trained Nubian guards. The shouts of joy could be heard over the snorting of horses and the pounding of hooves, and the sounds carried high above the walls of the Arena.’
I was half way through this excellent book when suddenly it disappeared…It had been secretly borrowed by my cousin who decided to take it with her to Florida…ugh! No worry, I love her dearly- she got back this weekend and the book was safely returned:) Now I can finally finish it!
