Teaser Tuesday

TEASER TUESDAY: 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
  • 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 so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teaser

MY TEASER:

Elizabeth preened. She liked being reminded of her own importance. And she also liked people being grateful to her. –lines 2362-2364, The Lady Elizabeth by Alison Weir.

I haven’t popped this one open yet, but I am really excited for it! A Tudor historical fiction that touches on the period between Henry’s death and Lady Elizabeth’s rise to power, it is written by one of the most well-versed Tudor historians. In fact, I think this novel is Alison Weir’s first stab at fiction. I find Queen Elizabeth to be a fascinating women who was clearly before her time, and for as little as I know about Queen Elizabeth, I know even less about her history prior to her ascent to queendom.

I chose this teaser because I think it’s very indicative of Elizabeth’s personality. I secretly admire Queen Elizabeth and wish I had more of her tenacity.

 

I will be reading this book for the The Tudor Book Challenge.
