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.
This was the thing with men, as my mother—Queen Malgven herself—had warned me. It didn’t matter who you really were; they wrote their own stories about you. They cast you in one of several roles: the innocent girl who needed teaching, the lunatic who needed calming, the whore who’d break your heart.

Now how is that for a bedtime story? Can you imagine a momma like that?
“In any case, if you tried to destroy the world, I’m sure you’d have a good reason.”
“Right. Like if someone next to me on the bus chewed a banana with their mouth open.”
“You’d be well within your rights to send the earth into a black hole for that. Anyone would agree.”

I despise loud chewing! So of course I had to include this teaser!
“Do you have any idea how many women would pay to have me chain them up? This doesn’t really seem a fitting punishment. You know, I could draw out your agony until you begged for death instead.”

Say what? I hope she kills him, painfully.
