Miz B at Should Be Reading hosts a weekly meme entitled Teaser Tuesday
  • 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! 

“A society dame has chosen to parade herself as a living portrait.  She must be treated as such.  It’s her due.” 
~Wicked by Gregory Maguire page 200

  1. This book totally freaked me out. i don't think I ever had such a strong reaction to a book before.

    I reviewed it mid last year I think, just when I was getting my blog started. Here is my review

    Its not a great review because I had just started blogging, and I wasn't sure how to put my feelings into words.

    I hope that you are enjoying it. I have the sequel sitting at home, but I want to re-read Wicked before I read the sequel.

    My teaser this week is from a Shirley Hazzard book.

  2. Alayne– I love this book too! it's a reread for me.

    Rose City Reader– this teaser makes me want to be part of high society too.

    Becky– I think you either love Wicked or hate it. I'm really enjoying it, but my mom would side with you. I think she's too much of a purist.

  3. Great Teaser for the book because I think it accurately represents it. I read it a few years ago and have to say that it is really a thinking book! (if that even begins to make sense)

  4. This books has been sitting on my shelf for a couple of years. I saw the musical and my mom bought me the book after we saw it, but the truth is I didn't really care for the musical and so I never picked the book up! Maybe I should at least take a look at it! Here's my teaser for Watermark.

  5. I am OBSESSED with the Wicked musical! I have yet to read the book though. But I will, soon. It's intimidating how thick it is lol.

  6. I've had this book forever, and I have still not read it…

    I will have to get to it soon.

    I found your blog through "Lights, Camera, Blog Action." Great interview, and great blog!
