Teaser Tuesday (18)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! You should too, it's really fun and a great way to find out about other awesome books, and blogs. 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!
My Teaser this week is from The Academie by Susanne Dunlap. I actually just finished it.


  • Publisher: Bloomsbury USA
  • Publication date: 2/28/2012
  • Edition number: 1
  • Pages: 368
My Teaser

We are silent. I am thinking how selfish I am, to worry about the state of my heart when the future of France is at stake, when my stepfather may be mortally injured. (pg 276 eARC)

This book is in a multi-POV. The teaser I used is from Hortense's POV.  Being that I am reading it on an eReader it's hard to find a good teaser. It's not very easy to just flip through the book. My review for this book should be up in a few days. Leave me a link and I will be happy to check out your Tuesday post.

    1. You know, I'm still not quite sure what I think. I liked it, but nothing that blew me away. I am thinking 3.5 stars.

    1. It was good, but not great. I am still letting it settle.

  3. I actually really like that! Pretty awesome quote considering you had to sift through your Kindle. I really like historical fiction when it's done well, so I'll have to add this one to my TBR pile. :)

  4. Hmmm.... how many POV's cause sometimes that gets a little much. Sounds okay.

    1. Three PoV's. It wasn't too bad. The story was pretty good though.

I love comments! I will try to respond to as many as I can. I read every one of them, even if I do not respond to them all.
