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!
She had chosen to trade barrenness and the risk of death for the chance of strength. Real strength, her own. Not the mirror-caught power her father, his widow, her half brothers or her dead husband might have happened to shine her way.
It seemed but a small sacrifice.

My TBR list is too large. Titanic sized. Tremendously big.
At present, my TBR pile has about 70 books. This includes the books on my kindle, a few ARCs and a couple of books from the library.
The ARCs have to take precedence, of course . (Sadly, I started a book not from the ARC list yesterday. I am bad.)
70 books is overwhelmingly large. Before I got my kindle, my TBR list did not get this large. In fact, it was as large as the number of books I could fit into one library bag or on top of my table. Half the table; I need space for the computer and notebooks and speakers and various other stuff.
Having a kindle means I have more unread books now than ever before. Once, I tried to decrease it by reading only from the TBR list. I pretended I didn’t have a library card, pretended the kindle had no way to download books with one click (maybe two clicks).
It worked, but not for long. I only managed to decrease the TBR list by a handful of books. Now it’s back and bigger than ever.
It’s a little intimidating. Also, joyful. 😉
