Teaser Tuesday 3.16.10

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading and it asks us to...
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share a couple of “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 Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!
Vanessa's Teaser:
"Kel
adry of Mindelan would not have to hide her sex for eight years as Alanna had done. Keladry would prove to the world that girls could be knights. And she would not be friendless..."

~Pg. 1 from "First Test" by Tamora Pierce
Book 1 of the Protector of the Small Quartet - A Tortall Legend



Isalys's Teaser:
"She knew what she was allowing him to do was beyond the pale in Polite Society, but with Morgan she simply had no inclination to stop him and no inhibitions where he was concerned. She had already flagrantly disobeyed so many rules, and simply disregarded others, that there seemed to be little reason to worry now. "

~p. 154 from "An Earl To Enchant" by Amelia Grey

Note: Blog tour coming up on March 30th =)

  1. "I tell her. It hurts to be alive.
    What kind of a hurt is that, Salome? Honestly. It's late. We've got to get up early to be at the square for the proclamation."

    In the Name of Salome, Julia Alvarez (p. 26).

    Great read!

  8. Vanessa: Eeeeee. First Test! Keladry of Mindelan has got to be my favorite Tamora Pierce character. XD How are you liking the book so far?

    Amelia: Oooo. Breaking the rules. Love it.

    LOL, I noticed both your teasers are about defying convention in some way.

    Thanks for dropping by mine! :)
