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! ;)
From Godmother: The Secret Cinderella Story, by Carolyn Turgeon:

It took me a second to orient myself. This was not the old kingdom. The silver palace had long ago been destroyed. In its place was a whole city.

I'm enjoying Godmother and will probably finish in the next couple of days. It's an enjoyable, romantic read, about Cinderella's fairy godmother, now banished to the human world and working in a used bookstore. She meets a beautiful young woman and believes it is her mission to set up this new Cinderella with a handsome prince. She also finds an intriguing book about fairies with the inscription All your old loves will be returned to you. What does it all mean? I'll keep turning pages to find out.

I got this book as a review copy back in January. I loved it, such a sweet book and the ending was quite the twist.

Can't find if I actually wrote a review of it. Blogger is not being very searchable tonight. Or I am not thinking very well.
