Teaser Tuesday-Nov. 3


Check out Teaser Tuesdays from Should Be Reading. TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

Grab your current read.

Let the book fall open to a random page.

Share with us two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.

You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

I've just started reading Cleopatra's Daughter by Michelle Moran so that is where my teaser is from this week:
If they were wise, they would lay down their weapons, but even then there was no guarantee that their lives would be spared.  My father had said that Octavian slaughtered anyone who stood against him-that he would kill his own mother if she slandered his name.
