Teaser Tuesday #34



Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, just do as following:
 Grab your current read
       • Open to a random page
       Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
       Be careful not to include any spoilers so as not to ruin the book for others.

Make sure to share the title and the author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR piles.
Castles In The Air (Medieval, #2)
"He'd sat on the covers and explained how the disastrous masquerade had come about, how he'd lied only to ease her fears, how he had become trapped in his own disguise, and how he'd intended to reveal himself.
He'd been a bit vague about when he had intended to reveal himself, and he'd invited her to speak her thoughts."

Castles In The Air (Medieval Series #2)
by Christina Dodd, paperbakc version, page 150.

____________________________



This book is sooooo BO-ring. And I thought that, as a heiress and Lady of the castle and all that, she'd be a more powerful and stronger heroine, but she's been called 'whore', 'bitch', 'stupid' and 'weak' about a dozen times, been beaten and raped and done nothing about it... sure, maybe in that time period that's how  a woman would really act, ignore things and hope for the best, but we don't read historicals because they are ACCURATE, right? We read it because we want to run away to another time and have fun... I am now depressed. >.> 

Hopefully it'll get better.

What is your teaser this week?

  1. Sorry you are finding it boring. The teaser is interesting anyway! But I probably won't be adding this to my TBR.

  10. Sounds like he is the one doing a lot of stuff. I think some of these books might actually be more interesting from the male's POV if the woman isn't doing a whole lot.
