Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. The idea is to give everyone a look inside the book you’re reading.
1.) Grab your current read
2.) Open to a random page
3.) Share two teaser sentences from that page
4.) Share the title and author so that other participants know what you’re reading.
Be careful not to include spoilers. You don’t want to ruin the book for others!
My teaser this week, with a short caveat — I’m cheating this week. Yes, I’m giving more than you ask for but while I was reading I thought this one small paragraph said so much about the character that I wanted to share it. It’s dripping with ambition and you know who and what Nefertiti is about. Enjoy.
“She stopped in the courtyard, where the chariots were waiting to take us to the building site of the new temple. The cobra on her crown, nestled in her dark hair, glinted in the sun. “I love him as much as any woman ever will. You don’t understand. You’re only fourteen. But love means lying.””
Nefertiti by Michelle Moran, pg. 167.
I was hoping to have finished Nefertiti by now but life has conspired against me the last few days. It’s turning out to be an all week read but it’s a fun read.

Oh, Nefertiti sounds so good- I quite like that tantalizing little teaser. I’m very happy you’re enjoying it!
Mine is set in 1800s New England instead of Egypt this week.
Great teaser! I really want to read this one.
Very intriguing. And it’s okay you went over, it wasn’t very long. 🙂 Here’s my link: http://thecrowdedleaf.wordpress.com/2009/11/17/teaser-tuesday-double-or-nothin.
Great teaser! I didn’t even notice that you cheated 🙂
Here’s my Teaser.
This is a great teaser! I definitely want to read this book and it’s on my TBR list! Not the best attitude about love but she does have a cobra in her hair so I wouldn’t disagree! Just this passage alone tells me this book is so worthwhile! Thank you =o) I hope you’re enjoying it.
Oh, I love Egyptian Mythology and History! Eek! I must pick this up! Great teaser!
