Teaser Tuesday #11



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!

MY TEASERS: 


The Legend of Sigurd & Gudrún"The Gods gathered
on golden thrones,
of doom and death
deeply pondered,
how fate should be fended,
their foes vanquished,

their labour healed,
light rekindled."


The Legend of Sigurd and Gudr
úby J. R. R. Tolkien, p. 61

"The guests were many:
grim their singing,
boar's-flesh eating,
beakers draining;
mighty ones of Earth

mailclad sitting
for one they waited
the World's chosen."


The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrúby J. R. R. Tolkien, p. 65

  1. Haven't seen this Tolkien before. Now I have to add it to my TBR mountain. I just love your header quote!

    My teasers this week are from Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamiton and from The Next Always by Nora Roberts. Happy reading!

  4. Thanks for visiting -- cool site you ahve here, and a great teaser. I have not read any of Tolkien's "extended" LOTR universe, but this one and Children of Hurin are on the TBR list.
