Teaser Tuesday !!!

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 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!
Seems like this is a great motivator for me to post at the start of the week!   Plus, I visit other blogs to see their teasers -- it's a perfect way to find cool blogs, and discover books add to my TBR list!   :)
This week's teaser comes from Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken:  "I don't know what I was expecting of Provincia, but now that I was standing directly in front of its famous walls and four high towers, I was wholly underwhelmed.  Even the tallest spires of the castle were smaller than I had imagined."   p. 215

I can't imagine being underwhelmed at that kind of view.

My teasers this week are here.

That is sometimes true with expectations. I thought the book was very good. My teaser is from Legacies by Mercedes Lackey and Rosemary Edghill.

"Wholly underwhelmed" is an excellent, succinct descriptor, isn't it?

Love your TT button! Do you mind if I use it on my blog?
