Teaser Tuesday 6.29.10

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:
"So you remember our secret rendezvous?" Iain's fingers dipped underneath the top of her dress and traced the edge of Haven's lace bra. "I must admit - I've thought about those a bit myself. We had to be careful back then. It wouldn't have looked right for an unmarried young lady to be welcoming a man into her home. Particularly a man who didn't occupy the same social station."


~ p. 174 from "The Eternal Ones" {ARC} by Kirsten Miller


Isalys's Teaser:
""You didn't just write the play, Bertie," Peaseblossom said suddenly. "You ordered the Players about, shouted, and threw an artistic hissy fit. Do you know what that makes you?"
"A temperamental fusspot?" Mustardseed guessed.
"Crazier than a bag full of crazy?" Moth said.
"Close," Peaseblossom said. "It makes her a Director."

~p. 63 from "Eyes Like Stars" {Théâtre Illuminata, #1} by Lisa Mantchev

The fairies, who incidentally happen to be characters from my favorite Shakespearean play, are my favorite characters. They are an absolute riot and now I can only dream that I had my own fairy sidekicks! This book may not be for everyone, but I'm really enjoying it! It is one of the funniest and most cleverly written books I've read in a while :)

    I hadn't known there were Shakespearean fairies in Eyes Like Stars! This is good to know. =) I stay away from Historical Novels that speculate about Shakespeare, but I love stories that have some postmodern fun with his plays.
