I’ve decided to join this ’cause I think it’s pretty fun and easy. Plus I really want to quote smart retorts, full blown bullying, words of wisdom, swoon worthy lines and the like without giving much to readers about the entire book. A quote or two won’t hurt I guess.
So this is how you do it:
1. Grab your current read.
2. Randomly open a page.
3. 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!)
4. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants
can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
This is for this week’s Teaser Tuesday
A Darker Shade of Magic
by V. E. Schwab
“He was young and handsome and kind. Perhaps he played the part of rake too often and too well, but behind the charismatic smile and the flirtatious air was a sharp mind and a good intent, the desire to make everyone around him happy.”
“Pretty wouldn’t serve her well. And Lord knew she didn’t envy the ladies with their cinched corsets and abundant skirts, their falsetto laughs and the ridiculous way they used them. The way they swooned and leaned on men, feigning weakness to savor their strength.”
I initially thought of reading A Thousand Pieces of You first then this, but this book really intrigued me so I started it instead. I’m enjoying it so far. Will post the review as soon as I’m finished. 😉 Anyway, you could share some teasers on your current read too. Comment the link of your own Teaser Tuesday so I can check it out and have an idea of amazing books that I would want to read.
Teaser Tuesdays (TT) is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

I’ve often wondered about this author … seems very intriguing!

The book is indeed intriguing 🙂
I’m reading A Thousand Pieces of You next too! We’ll have to compare notes! I really like the sound of A Darker Shade of Magic, though. I’ve also seen it around a lot. I’m going to have to give it a try, after I get rid of some of my TBRs for this year. Thanks for sharing Nyze!

He sounds like a character with depth and the second teaser is very visual. Makes me think of southern belles.
