teaser tuesday (42)

Tuesday, June 22, 2010 |
It's Teaser Tuesday, a bookish blog meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:

Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page. Post two (or more) sentences from that page, along with the title and author. Don’t give anything vital away!


“‘Any girl with a dowry is told from the day she’s born that she has to marry just the right person for just the right reasons at just the right time.’ She grimaced. ‘All you can hope for is that he’s got teeth. And hair.’”


-p. 52 of Jessica Day George’s Princess of Glass (ARC version)

The definition of just the right person has certainly changed.

In that era, I suppose that would have been most important.

your teaser remembers me of one I read a while ago (I then read the book):

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman of fortune and passable good looks amuses herself in London with fashion, philanthropic works, and flirtation, until a suitable gentleman makes an offer.“

Janet Mullany "The rules of Gentility"

Reminds me of that old movie The Heiress with Olivia DeHavilland & Montgomery Clift.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

Excellent teaser! Talk about low expectations. What a depressing thought. I am a sucker for books inspired by fairytales, so I will have to keep any eye out for Princess of Glass.

Leslie (Under My Apple Tree) said...

Ha, that's funny coming from a young girl. Now if she were 'old' teeth and hair would be a real concern! lol

roisinrecommends said...

Haha. Brilliant teaser - I think I'll be quoting that one "in real life"!

Tiffany Harkleroad said...
