Teaser Tuesdays (Feb.2)

February 2, 2010

teasertuesdays31 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!

My Teasers:

“I could not help feeling giddy the way I had once, so many years before, when I’d seen myself in the light of the palace torches. As old as I was, the sense of possibility and transformation was still there.”

~ p.105, “Godmother: The Secret Cinderella Story” by Carolyn Turgeon

 

 

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your 2 ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!

  1. This will be my very first Teaser Tuesday ! Can’t wait to start participating more often ! I always enjoy reading everyone else’s every week.

  2. How are you liking this so far? I’m intrigued.

  3. How lucky I just checked and you’ve already posted! I love the Godmother teaser. My teaser is up at The Crowded Leaf.

  4. Great teaser! Here’s mine.

  5. Up so early, goodness! I take it this is from the Fairy Godmother’s perspective? Sounds interesting.

    Here’s my teaser.

    • Haha… NOPE! I posted my TT last night! :P I hate disappointing everyone when I don’t get up early enough! :-?

      ~MizB

  6. Beautiful prose and quite intriguing as a good teaser should be. I assume it is from the perspective of the Fairy Godmother looking back in time? My Teaser: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/02/teaser-tuesdays-schooled-in-lies.html

  7. Usually I am like the last one to get to these things. I think I am catching on. Yay Me. Your teaser makes me a little curious…What kind of transformation?

    Here’s My Teaser

  8. Sounds like a great idea for a book. Where would Cinderella be without her Fairy Godmother, right?
