Teaser Tuesday, 25 August: The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory

teaser-tuesdayIt’s that time of week again for Should Be Reading’s fun meme Teaser Tuesdays.

So how does this work:

  • Grab your current book
  • 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!

The Other QueenToday’s teaser comes from Philippa Gregory’s novel The Other Queen, which was released a little over a month ago in paperback.
I can feel my courage drain from me as if I am bleeding to death, and I am icy. The taste of defeat is like cold iron in my mouth, like the bit for an unbroken filly.” (Pg. 39)

QUESTION OF THE DAY
What’s your tease for this Tuesday?
