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
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.
