teaser tuesday (52)

Tuesday, August 31, 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!


“‘Ah, you see. My sister comes to be my nursemaid and chaperon, as I told you she would.’ She waved and raised her voice. ‘Jane! Do look at what Mr. Vincent is drawing.’”


-p. 72 of Mary Robinette Kowal’s Shades of Milk and Honey

This looked so good- Austenesque fantasy? Sounds like a perfect thing to pair with Jo Walton's Tooth and Claw. I hope you enjoy this, and I'll be following your blog now. :)

Thanks for the great teaser. This was already on my TBR pile. Loved the idea of a Regency fantasy. Now I'm even more anxious to read it!
