Teaser Tuesday: The Bronze Horseman

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

My Teaser: This teaser is from The Bronze Horseman.  Guess what? It's set during WWII.  Whoot!!  Whoot!!  I always start this book and then stop to let a review request.  I've heard so many good things that it is like I'm just looking for an excuse.  I'm kind of nervous to read it.  I hope I like it.
The Bronze Horseman

"Why did we spend two days fighting when we could have been doing this?" "That wasn't fighting, Tatiasha. That was foreplay." 

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!

From GoodReads:

Two sisters, Tatiana and Dasha, share the same bed, living in one room with their brother and parents. The routine of their hard impoverished life is shattered on 22 June 1941 when Hitler invades Russia. For the Metanov family, for Leningrad and particularly for Tatiana, life will never be the same again. On that fateful day, Tatiana meets a brash young man named Alexander. The family suffers as Hitler's army advances on Leningrad, and the Russian winter closes in. With bombs falling and the city under siege, Tatiana and Alexander are drawn inexorably to each other, but theirs is a love that could tear Tatiana's family apart, and at its heart lies a secret that could mean death to anyone who hears it. Confronted on the one hand by Hitler's vast war machine, and on the other by a Soviet system determined to crush the human spirit, Tatiana and Alexander are pitted against the very tide of history, at a turning point in the century that made the modern world.

Be sure to share a link to your teaser!

  1. I love this series!!!! Although I sent so much crying during this book and the next, I have the 3rd book in my possession and am too chicken to read it. I'm not ready to let the series go and I don't wanna cry anymore :( But it's worth it. It's a wonderful series!
