Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, the weekly Meme that wants you to add books to your TBR, or just share what you are currently reading. It is very easy to play along:

• Grab your current read</http://thepurplebooker.com/wp-admin/themes.phpem>
• 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! Everyone loves Teaser Tuesday.

i am so sorry this is up late this week everyone. I had it scheduled to go live and wordpress decided for some reason not to post it on time. I feel bad! I am glad that I double checked the blog though after packing up a wholesale stitch marker order. Whew! So apologies made here we go and it is Teaser Tuesday.

I actually just finished this book but as I was working through the night have not had a chance to start another yet so one last quote from the second book in the Saxon series.

“But deep under the earth, where the corpse serpent gnaws at the roots of Yggdrasil, the tree of life, there are three spinners. Three women who make our fate. We might believe we make choices, but in truth our lives are in the spinners’ fingers. They make our lives, and destiny is everything. The Danes know that, and even the Christians know it, Wyrd biõ ful araed, we Saxons say, fate is inexorable.”
― Bernard Cornwell, The Pale Horseman

I haven’t finished this one yet it has been a bi of chaos around here. That is alright eh? I don’t mind a bit of extra time spent with Uhtred and his companions. This quote won’t be to everyone’s taste, but this passage always makes me laugh.

“Your mother didn’t give birth to you,” I told hint, “but farted you out of her shrivelled arsehole.”
“Frightened or not,” Asser said, “you’ve taken Peredur’s silver, so you must fight them now.”
“Say one more word, monk,” I said, “and I’ll cut off your scrawny balls.”

Happy 4th of July to my American friends and family. Happy Treason day to all my British friends and family. Happy random day in July to all my friends and family from other places around the world, lol. Did I cover everyone?

And just because its my blog and I do what I want… I will use a rebellious Saxon Dane looking hunky on a Gif as my celebration image: LOL I am also re-reading the second book in the series.

So busy week last week I am still working on the first of the Saxon series re-read but that’s okay cause I mean who wouldn’t want to spend extra time with Uhtred right? I mean remember….

“What happens to you, Uhtred, is what you make happen. You will grow, you will learn the sword, you will learn the way of the shield wall, you will learn the oar, you will give honor to the gods, and then you will use what you have learned to make your life good or bad.”

I picked two from this one this week:

“Destiny is all, Ravn liked to tell me, destiny is everything. He would even say it in English, “Wyrd biõ ful ãræd.”

“The preachers tell us that pride is a great sin, but the preachers are wrong. Pride makes a man, it drives him, it is the shield wall around his reputation… Men die, they said, but reputation does not die.”

“We came onto the Graben at the plague column. The lamps of passing carriages flickered over the memorial of those who died over the Black Death. Nine carved choirs of angels ascended toward it’s gilded peak. To me, it seemed like the cherubs were slipping down to hell, grasping in vain for the elusive light of salvation above them.”
― Mozart’s last Aria by Matt Rees

I shall hang my head in shame that I have posted a teaser from this poor book yet again. I keep reading a few pages and then I end up getting bogged down in work. Poor excuse I know, but the Kindle seems to get along with my work schedule a bit better than hard copy books right now. What I need is a month or two without too many people, no computer and a boat. Yup, that’s what I need.

“Night falls. Or has fallen. Why is it that night falls, instead of rising, like the dawn? Yet if you look east, at sunset, you can see night rising, not falling; darkness lifting into the sky, up from the horizon, like a black sun behind cloud cover. Like smoke from an unseen fire, a line of fire just below the horizon, brushfire or a burning city. Maybe night falls because it’s heavy, a thick curtain pulled up over the eyes. Wool blanket.”
― Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale

I have been bouncing around with this one a bit, I am enjoying it more then I did the first time but still a little on the fence about it.

Not my favorite so far but it is part of the series so at least I am finishing it up.

I know this will seem funny since I was reading book 3 last week but hey I am entitled to be funny sometimes decided to go back and read the rest again.

“9p.m. My flat. Feel very strange and empty. Is all very well thinking everything is going to be different when you come back but then it is all the same. Suppose I have to make it different. But what am I going to do with my life?
I know. Will eat some cheese.” ~ Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (Bridget Jones #2)
