Teaser Tuesday (17) Throne of Glass

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.

Teaser One

“Guards are of no use in a library.” 

Oh, how wrong he was! Libraries were full of ideas—perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons.

Throne of Glass page 57

This is why I love libraries! It is the most dangerous of places.

Teaser Two

"Are any of them sizing you up? No. Because you’re not real competition. Because you don’t stand between them and whatever freedom or wealth they’re looking for.”

“Exactly! It’s insulting!”

“And when they wake up on the morning of the final duel and find that you are their opponent, and that you have beaten them, the look on their faces will make all of the insults and lack of attention worthwhile.”

Throne of Glass page 91

Chaol plan is really smart, hopefully Celaena/Lillian can stick to it. It must horrible to be who she is and have to hide it among those arrogant champions.

Teaser Three

“You’re my dearest friend, Celaena. It hurt me—hurt me more than I realized it would—to have things become so cold between us. To see you look at me with such distrust in your eyes. And I don’t want to ever see you look at me like that again. So I wish to give to you what I have given to few before.”

Throne of Glass page 322

While I understand where the distrust comes from I am with Princess Nehemia. Celaena should trust her and accept whatever she gives her.
