Teaser Tuesday #6


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!

This week's teaser is from The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman which was first published in paperback last year. I bought a copy as you all are probably getting to know the fact that I love fairy tales, retellings and anything with a pretty cover! Then I discovered that it was going to be released again on September 6 with yet another gorgeous cover, I gave my original copy to a friend who has similar reading tastes and promptly ordered this one which arrived on Friday -


"There was something almost gothic about this place, with the mysterious collection Anjali and Marc wouldn't tell me about and now a disappearing page. I was less scared than intrigued." 

- Pg. 28, The Grimm Legacy - Polly Shulman, published by Oxford University Press, UK - 978-0192793102

  7. Ditto to Cheles' comment...I love the Grimms! They were my favorite stories as a kid. Because I was odd like that. :P And I love retellings. I'm very intrigued. Good choice.

  12. Have not heard of this one before now, but I think a disappearing page would intrigue me as well. I hope you enjoy reading The Restorer too!

  13. Hi,

    Had to laugh, you caught me well and truly with those teaser lines!! It wasn't until I clicked through to the 'Goodreads' link that I realised what kind of 'page' we were talking about!!

    This probably isn't a book that I would be rushing out to buy though and personally, I prefer the cover that is shown in your link, sorry!!

    The post did make me smile, a fun few minutes guessing game!
