Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS (Make sure what you share doesn't give too much away--you don't want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title and author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!
I 've been reading Bitterblue by Kristen Cashore and Crewel by Gennifer Albin, and I can't decide which to use for this, so here are teasers for both.

"If I may say so, Lady Queen," said Giddon, "it's not always easy to follow your conversation."
 
"Oh, Giddon," she said, sighing.  "If it's any comfort, I don't follow it either."
 
~Bitterblue, page 133

"They have your sister."  

"They don't have my heart." 

And there it is.  As close as we've come to talking about whatever it is between us.

  5. Haha loved the Bitterblue teaser! I've read all of Kristin Cashore's other books, but I haven't gotten to this one yet. Wasn't a huge fan of Crewel though. New GFC follower! Would love it if you could return the favor. :)

    Here's my teaser.

  6. The first one makes me laugh! :D I've been meaning to read that one and haven't gotten to it yet. Will be on the lookout for your review! :) The second one intrigues me. I haven't read it either, but I'm thinking I should add it to my tbr pile. And thanks for stopping by and following Flowers of Quiet Happiness! I'm a new follower of yours. It's wonderful to meet you too. :)
