This week, my teaser is from Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire. I haven't read anything by Maguire in a while; I read Wicked and Son of a Witch almost three years ago. It's mostly because I thought some elements of both books were a little strange, and it isn't the type of Fantasy I usually read. But I always love books that turn the antagonist into the protagonist, so I decided to pick up this one.
(I don't really like the cover for the book. I think the art is detailed and interesting, but nothing really pops and says "Read Me!". I prefer this alternative cover, even if it is more generic.)
"He's taken and flattened all that is attractive in you," says Caspar. "It's like a lie that has enough resemblance to truth to convince for a brief moment."-p. 51
What are you reading right now? Have a teaser to share?
