This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England. ~~William Shakespeare, Richard III

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!

  • The Stolen Crown, Susan Higginbotham

    Upset, as if three men's deaths were no more than a spoiled bolt of fabric or an overcooked piece of meat. "You knew all along he planned to kill them."

    "Indeed. There is no telling what I might do, lawless wretch that I am." I inspected my sleeve. "Yes, I could fit a dagger right here..."

    1. I picked this up to start reading last night. Interesting points of view so far.

      Sounds like someone might be a bit dangerous with his dagger up his sleeve!
