Teaser Tuesday: Lord of Misrule

Little Spinoza's head flew up and  the horse plunged forward into the small party gathering at the winner's circle.  A woman screamed and another in a black picture hat sat down in the dirt.

-- Lord of Misrule by Jaimy Gordon, which won the National Book Award for 2010.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

one of my friends just posted a raving review of this on Goodreads - I can't wait to hear if you loved it too. It might be going on my TBR list!

Well, that's intriguing.

My teaser is from Major Pettigrew's Last Stand, such a terrific book.

A very intriguing teaser! It might be a funny scene or maybe a scary one, I'm not sure which, but my interest is definitely piqued! I have heard great things about this book, I hope you're enjoying it!

Happy Teaser Tuesday!
My teaser this week is for:
Forget-Her-Nots by Amy Brecount White which is on sale right not for only 5.19 on Amazon for new hardback!!!! I figure I should spread the word since it is such a popular YA book and the author is so nice. I have the link up if you want to check it out!

Loved the teaser and love horse racing stories. We have a couple of good racing thriller writers, here in the UK (Dick Francis, John Francome, Jenny Pitman and Mark Daniels), but I would be intrigued to read something by a US author, as a comparison. I may give this one a try.

Thanks for the recommend,

That's a great teaser...you keep reading books that are on my TBR list for the future. I'm still waiting (impatiently) for the library hold gods to decide it's my turn for this one.
