Teaser Tuesday: The White Queen ~ Philippa Gregory

August 30, 2011

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!



I feel worse than I have ever done before, because now I know that it is easier to take a country into war than to bring it to live at peace, and a country at war is a bitter place to live, a risky place to have daughters, and a dangerous place to hope for a son.

p.99 The White Queen by Philippa Gregory

    Very dramatic teaser. Will have to go and have a look at that one I think.

    Thoughtful teaser – as in it’s making me think.

    Goodness, what a dramatically powerful teaser! I’ve not read any of Philippa Gregory’s books before, but I might have to start looking into them. 🙂 Thank you for sharing and for visiting!

    I read this one last year, and I will be interested in hearing what you think of it as compared to what I did!

    The author sounds familiar! And yes, the story of history confirms that it is all too easy to induce a nation to war. :-/

    I need to try Gregory’s work. She’s a favorite of a dear friend of mine.

    Great teaser! Thanks for sharing. If you get a chance, mine is here.

    nice teaser 🙂 seems like the White Queen has a lot on her shoulders in bringing peace to her country. i’d like to read one of Philippa Gregory’s books one day, i still haven’t read one 😦

    anyway, thanks for the recent visit 🙂 i can’t believe Emily Giffin’s just five miles away from you.. yes, i recommend that you go check one of her books. 🙂
