To Be King-Teaser Tuesdays


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!
Here is mine:

"Is this what it means to be King? he thought. To be continuously quarrelling, stamping, and snarling? To feel I've not one loyal friend, not one person to trust implicitly?"
~Page 93, Pendragon's Banner by Helen Hollick

Great tease! Apparently, it is NOT good to be the king. :)

Oh to be king. :)

High places can be lonely places. Thanks for the teaser

I think Simba would disagree that that is what it's like to be King. Great tease!

Lisa said...

Did he think it would be all parades and beheadings? :)

Jenn-ay said...

Ewww, being royalty sounds like no fun!

Marie Burton said...

Good teaser, I'll look forward to your review. I've seen the book around and haven't decided to add it to my wish list just yet, let's see what you think of it!

Jess said...

I would assume that being a king would be lonely then :( Good thing I won't ever have the chance to be king. Heh.

I'm beginning to see this book on the blogs a lot. But I don't think I'd want to be king! Great teaser!

Jenny Girl said...

LOL
Great minds think alike apparently. Here's my teaser

longbrakeliving said...

Great teaser! This idea reminds me a lot of "The White Queen," which I just finished. Oh the perils of Kingship!

Tea said...

Sounds really good! I would love to read all these books with such good teasers. I come here so often it's beginning to feel like "home.":)

Lizzy said...

Sounds like a really interesting book, I'll have to look into it. Great teaser!

Allison said...

If that's how it's like to be a king, then I am grateful for not being in royalty.

Here is my teaser: http://www.wellreadreviews.com/blog/?p=979 :)

alitareads said...

Sounds like being king isn't all it's cracked up to be. Great teaser :)

Amy said...

Awwww, I feel bad for him! It doesn't sound like much fun to be king...or to be President for that matter. You don't know who you can trust for the most part and you can never make anyone happy!

Love your teaser! Now I have another book to add to my TBR. I'm forseeing a problem with these Tuesday Tesers, I keep discovering books to read!

~ Amy

jlshall said...

Sounds pretty bad to be King. Wonder what it's like to be Queen? Great teaser!

Kim said...

It's lonely at the top! I don't think it would even be "good to be queen", except in our own little kingdoms.

September means return to classics, my teaser, The Count of MC http://zqueenbees.blogspot.com/2009/09/teaser-tuesdays_22.html

dystake said...

Great teaser! And from a King Arthur books I'm not familiar with - now I'll have to check it out.

My teaser is here.

Margot at Joyfully Retired said...

That shakes up our assumptions about kings, doesn't it. Good teaser.

Catherine @ The Blonde Diaries said...

That doesn't sound like a fun job and I can totally sense the disappointment in that teaser and how he is feeling. I have felt the same way when I've finally gotten to a goal or gotten something I've wanted for a while and it didn't live up to expectations.

Thanks for stopping by!
