It's Tuesday: Where Are You? / Teaser Tuesdays (Feb. 10)

I'm a young teenager in ancient Alexandria. My older sisters have recently died and my father has just returned from Rome to reclaim his throne. I am beginning to realize that I am the oldest surviving child of my father and that someday I could be queen. I am a Ptolemy, and I am directly descended from Alexander the Great. My older sisters used to tell me that I was Greek, not Egyptian.

For more Where Are You? answers, visit Raidergirl3 at An Adventure in Reading.

MizB at Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Here's how it works: Grab your current read; let the book fall open to a random page; and share 2 “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. For more teasers, click on through to MizB's blog. Note: this teaser was found by using Amazon's "surprise me" feature.

"Finally he leaned toward me and whispered, his breath moving one of my earrings, 'This has been a very long day, and I feel I have met you over and over again, in guise after guise. Which is real?'

I turned my head, not lowering it but moving it most royally. 'And I have seen many Caesars,' I said. 'Which of those is real!' "

—Both from The Memoirs of Cleopatra by Margaret George

You're well and truly in the ancient world! I like Margaret George's books, but I haven't read Cleopatra. I have Helen of Troy on my to-be-read list. Cleopatra's going on the list now!

Ha! I love your choice to share with us. That lady has got it all going on!

I love Margaret George. She never disappoints. I also really eanjoyed 'Memoirs of Cleopatra', you start looking at that queen in a different more appreciative way.

I've never heard of Margaret George, but I'll be looking out for her books now. Great teasers!

I remember Elizabeth Taylor playing Cleopatra but that the extent of my knowledge of ancient history. But this book sounds like a good story. Thanks.

Always been fascinated with Cleopatra. Good teaser.

I've never read Margaret George - good teaser!

Michele 2/11/09, 12:20 AM  

I read this one years and years ago and you know...I can't remember much about it, LOL. I still have my copy...maybe I should dust it off and pencil in a re-read!

Louise 2/11/09, 3:31 AM  

I've never read any Cleopatra-books, but I have the Elizabeth Taylor movie on dvd and it is imo the best Cleo-movie of them all (and there are a lot)

Nicole (Linus's Blanket) 2/11/09, 4:04 AM  

I love that I was able to guess you were talking about Cleopatra. I know it should have been pretty easy, but I have to take my wins where I can get them.

Jo-Jo 2/12/09, 3:17 PM  

I haven't read anything by Margaret George yet, but this sure sounds good! I think it would be fun to read something about Cleopatra.
