TEASER TUESDAY and award for my 10 yr old daughters new blog!

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading and anyone can play! 

  • Grab your current read
  • flip to a random page
  • select two teaser sentences
  • try not to include ANY SPOILERS!
  • don't forget to include the name of the book and author so we can all add it to our morbidly obese TBR piles!
I am still reading The 19th Wife, it is a fantastic read and I am finding the parts that flash back to 19th centure Mormonism with the storylines involving the wives and even several wives of Brigham Young himself FASCINATING! 

Here it is: (there was a theatre in the great Mormon city founded by Birgham young, this teaser is taken within a discussion of the types of plays that were put on there)

There was also, for at ime, a prohibition against sentimental romances that glorified monogamous love.  I remember one evening when a Saint of about seventy stood up in his seat and hollered, "I ain't sitting through no play where a man makes such a cussed fuss over ONE woman."

For more Teaser Tuesdays click here.

In celebration of my beautiful girl starting her very own book blog, I am giving her the HAPPY 101 award--- CONGRATULATIONS ELLIE and WELCOME TO THE BOOK BLOG WORLD! 


The winner of this award must list 10 things that make them the most happy in the world!  Then you must pass it along to at least one other person.  :0)
