Teaser Tuesday (1.26.10)


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!
After speeding through and finishing Roses last night, I decided that I had to read The Heretic Queen by Michelle Moran next, primarily based on all the great comments about it in response to my In My Mailbox post this Sunday! You can expect a review of Roses sometime tomorrow, but in the meantime, here's a teaser from The Heretic Queen. I haven't really started yet, so this quote is from the prologue, and I'm definitely intrigued!


"Where will Amun have heard your name," she demanded, "to recognize it among so many thousands begging for aid?"

"Nowhere," I heard Ramesses whisper, and the old priestess nodded firmly.

"If the gods cannot recognize your names," she warned, "they will never hear your prayers." (p4)

Can't wait to get more into this book! Enjoy the teaser!
