Teaser Tuesday: Beauty

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!

I wondered how King Cophetua’s beggar-maid had felt when the palace gates had first opened for her. But there was little resemblance between us; she had a king in love with her, because of her innate nobility, and a beauty that sparkled even through her rags.

pg. 106 of Beauty by Robin McKinley.

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your 2 ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!

  1. Ooh just saw that you didn’t like it! That’s too bad, but I love reading reviews on books people didn’t like, so I’ll check back to see what you though. 🙂

  2. Aw, I’m sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy it! I liked Beauty a lot, but more in a I’m-having-fun-here sort of way than in a this-book-means-a-lot-to-me one.

  3. I love Beauty! But since it wasn’t your cup of tea, maybe Rose Daughter will be? (It wasn’t mine, but I think I appreciate it more I get older. . .)

    Also, have you read the Damar books? In my opinion, those were Robin McKinley’s best!
