Teaser Tuesday! (4)

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 away too much! 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 teaser!

Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire

"The water turned to ice as she ran - foot by foot of ice under foot by foot of hurry. A silvering plate formed instantly, cantilevering forward, making a cold safe bridge to the island -" p. 311


While I am enjoying this one, I find it's plodding along at a slow pace. Not really sure what I make of it overall, yet. This one will be keeping me away from blogging for a bit though, unfortunately - an essay on how it interrogates the ideologies of The Wizard of Oz is due next! Wish me luck!

In the meantime, please share with me your own teasers!

  3. I started reading this one ages ago but I found it so slow that I never finished it. I wasn't that far from the end maybe I should dig it out and finish it off.

  4. @Kyanara_night It's an oldie but a goodie, I'd say. If you're interested, I definitely recommend giving it a read. It's really kind of surprising!

    Thanks for commenting!

  6. @Sally I'm finding it interesting, only because it's nothing like I expected! I am finding it really slow though...but as it's for school I'm pushing through it. I certainly don't think it's for everyone!

    Thanks for commenting and sharing your teaser!
