Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesday 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 “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
Be sure 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

"Is she still beautiful?" I hear them say to one another as they pass below my window. "Or has she shrivelled and withered, now that she no longer wears a crown? Now that the former emperor no longer loves her? She must be fifty years old now! She must have lost her looks."
p1 The Secret Life of Josephine: A novel, by Carolly Erikson

  13. How sad! To think some people are so shallow, and some are, that they would make such assumptions. Good spoiler, though.
