Teaser Tuesday

I am not quite sure why but I somehow missed Teaser Tuesday last week! To make up for that, I have two teasers for you this week!

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should be Reading:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

The first teaser comes from page 246 of Grimspace by Anne Aguirre:

Beneath his intellectual exterior lies a ruthless bastard. And this is the first time I've seen it. I experience a frisson of unease, as if I've been sailing along a smooth sea, unaware of dangers that lurk unseen.

The second comes from The Founding, the first book in the super long Morland Dynasty series. I have no idea why I am starting yet another series (in fact, both of these books are first in a series!), but I have been wanting to read it for ages:

There had never been so few children in the nursery, and Eleanor was suddenly made aware by how thin a thread the Morland futures hung. She decided then and there that she must look around for suitable wives for both Ned and Edmund, and must speak to the King about a match for Thom.


  1. I just bought Grimspace today at Borders. It's been on my list for a long while now, so I decided to just do it.
    Hmmm another family dynasty, maybe I'll consider it.

    On a serious note, my thoughts, prayers and hugs to you and yours during this terrible time. I hope the situation takes a turn for the better.

  2. I know what you mean about starting yet another book - and in a series no less. Ahh - but what fun it will be.
    Great teasers.

  3. Yay! Someone else jumping on the Morland Dynasty train. I'm in the middle of book two right now...

  4. Both your teaser and the cover of Grimspace intrigue me. I am putting this one on my TBR pile. Thanks!
