Teaser Tuesday–Princess of the Wild Swans and Deadly

 

Diane Zahler’s reimagined fairy tales are quickly becoming a favorite of mine.  Princess of the Wild Swans is another fun book that kept me entertained over the weekend.  I am looking forward to more of her books!

 

I rose abruptly, rocking the table.  As I stood, my goblet crashed to the floor, shattering into a hundred tiny pieces. At the sound, the door to the hall flew open.  Mistress Tuileach stood there, and I ran to her.

Help me! I thought in desperation.

 

I just picked up Deadly by Julie Chibbaro.  I love the premise; it takes place in New York in 1906 during the devastating outbreak of typhoid fever. 

 

Every September, the shivers come over me, thoughts of my brother’s terrifying death, and the questions – why did his short life end? Why do people have to die?

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 (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!
