Teaser Tuesday - Words of Radiance, by Brandon Sanderson

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* 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 and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!


I am currently reading Words of Radiance, by Brandon Sanderson.  This is a huge novel, and it will probably take me awhile to get through, which means we'll get lots of Teasers out of it!  In this Tease, Shallan has finally reached the Shattered Plains, and finds herself in a place of relative safety...

The Tease:

"In her sitting room - her sitting room - thumps announced the footmen arriving with her trunks.  They left a moment later, closing the door.  for the first time in quite a long while, Shallan found herself not fighting for her survival or worrying about being murdered by one of her traveling companions.

So she fell asleep."
 -Words of Radiance, by Brandon Sanderson
What's your Tease?


  1. I wonder how her life was before she got her own "sitting room."

    My TT

  2. Nice teaser, I wonder how she lived before she had a sitting room. Was she poor? Great teaser, I have The Way of Kings on next months TBR list (Though I may start it this month if I have time)
    Here's my Teaser Tuesday

  3. Oooh, intriguing.

    Here's mine (YA Fiction):

  4. Sounds like she's worn to a frazzle. It must be exhausting to constantly fear being murdered!
    My Teaser is from SNOW FENCE ROAD.
