Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays 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, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

From The Confessions of Catherine de Medici by C.W. Gortner:

"I wanted to lay eyes on the infamous Catherine de Medici and find out if everything they say is true, if they call you Madame la Serpente because, like a snake, your bite kills your enemies."  I took a step forward, not caring in that moment if she consented to the marriage or dropped dead at my feet.

      Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A great read. I'll certainly be back.

      I do like the way you have framed this particular situation and it does indeed give us a lot of fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, through just what I have observed, I just hope as the comments pile on that people today continue to be on issue and in no way get started on a tirade regarding the news of the day. Anyway, thank you for this outstanding piece and though I can not necessarily agree with the idea in totality, I value the standpoint.

      Nice read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch since I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch!

      Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's tough to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you've done a great job with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Chrome. Excellent Blog!

      Yet another thing is that when you are evaluating a good internet electronics retail outlet, look for web shops that are continuously updated, maintaining up-to-date with the most current products, the perfect deals, in addition to helpful information on products and services. This will make sure that you are dealing with a shop which stays on top of the competition and gives you things to make knowledgeable, well-informed electronics purchases. Thanks for the vital tips I have really learned through the blog.
