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 (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This weeks Teaser Tuesday comes from The King's Touch by Jude Morgan.  I am really, really loving it so far but I'm going to have to abandon it for a little while to start reading for my October scheduled reviews.

"If a man cannot see the shapings of fate in his life, then he is blind, just as much as if he denies that he grows from a child, puts on flesh, finds grizzle in his hair, begins at last to stoop.  These things, and the grace that succeeds them, are called with justice the common fate.  It is a man's path through the world, and he cannot step off it: it is as peculiarly his own as his face in the glass, which is like no other that ever was.  So I believe, in my blood.  And it was from this time, I think, that the belief entered me."



  1. Another quote I love from this book is:, 'My mother [Lucy Walter] spent a great deal of time in front of her mirror, but she never really saw herself'
    The King's Touch is one of my favourites too, I love Jude Morgan's work and his ability to cross eras is masterly.

  2. That is certainly quite a teaser...thanks for sharing it!

  3. Very philosophical! I had to read it twice! Here's my teaser from Stolen.

  4. Quite a mouthful from the King? Nice teaser. Here's mine.

  5. I just got Passion from the library -- I'm hoping to get to it before my Oct reads come in!

  6. I am actually between books. We are making trips and I can't seem to start the one I want to.
