TEASER TUESDAY!



This Teaser Tuesday came my way courtesy of The Burton Review.

TEASER TUESDAYS
is hosted by ShouldBeReading and 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.
♠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!
♠Please avoid spoilers!

My Enemy the Queen, by Victoria Holt (another Jean Plaidy pen name)
Pg.57

‘“We must hope that none of them produce a black calf,” Walter told me, and when I wanted to know why he explained: “ There’s a legend in the family. If a black cat appears that means there will be a death in the family.”’

I didn’t get to this part yet…so I’m quite curious about what's happening here.

My Enemy The Queen is the book that we’ve chosen to read for this month of June at our Plaidy’s Royal Intrigue blog. If anyone has this book and would love to join our group, just come by and drop us a line. The more the merrier!

"I don't get it, how could you guys name me me after someone so strange? No one takes me seriously," Gogol said.

The Namesake - Jhumpa Lahiri - page 100

Second time around, and it's still great...

Great teaser. I'm just going to be starting the book -maybe tonight even.
