At this time I will no longer be taking any new review requests or participating in any memes. There will still be author interviews, blasts, guest posts and occasionally reviews posted (as I climb through by TBR pile!!). Life is kind of hectic and I have to focus on a few other commitments before coming back full-time to my blog. Thank you to everyone that has supported me and I won't be gone forever. I will still be around on my social media sites!

Teaser Tuesday: The Red Queen

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 "teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

The Red Queen: A Novel (The Cousins' War)I look at him, and I know my face is defiant and cold. "I know it is over," I say. "Who should know better than I? It is my cause that is defeated, the head of my house executed, my husband wounded fighting on the wrong side, and my son going into exile. Who should know better than I that all hope is dead for my country?" ~pg 198

I have been seeing reviews of this book all around. It does look and sound great. I have two this week. My YA teaser is from Five Flavors of Dumb and my adult teaser is from The Iron Duke. Happy reading!
