Thank goodness for Teaser Tuesday to get me back on track!!! 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!
This week, my teaser comes from a book I just got from the library: The White Queen by Philippa Gregory. It's a bit different from my usual reads, but I've always enjoyed Antonia Fraser's nonfiction books, so I thought I'd try a bit of historical fiction.
