Teaser Tuesday, March 27, 2012

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.

My Teaser today from from My Sparkling Misfortune by Laura Lond.  This was a free book from Amazon and was not what I expected.  It is listed as a children’s book.  I guess I still have some child in me because I through it was really cute and after I finished it I went to Amazon and purchased My Royal Pain Quest, the next book in the series.

Here is my teaser:

“Yes, you have guessed it:  I am a villain.”

“But let me tell you something before you put it down:  there are no heroes without us villains.”

Check out what Goodreads has to say about My Sparkling Misfortune:  

Lord Arkus of Blackriver Castle readily admits that he is a villain and sees no reason why it should stop him from being the protagonist of this book. After all, Prince Kellemar, an aspiring hero, has defeated him in a rather questionable way.Bent on revenge, Arkus attempts to capture a powerful evil spirit who would make him nearly invincible, but a last-minute mistake leaves him with a Sparkling instead—“a goody-goody spirit that helps heroes, watches over little children, and messes up villains’ plans.”

Bound to Lord Arkus for five years of service and sworn to act in his best interests, the Sparkling is not easy to get rid of, and of course his understanding of “best interests” is quite different from what Lord Arkus has in mind.
