Teaser Tuesday - The Autobiography Of Mrs. Tom Thumb

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!
The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb: A Novel"(I will remind the reader that Mr. Barnum had no need to train me; I came to him with a full complement of talents.)" pg 186  The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb by Melanie Benjamin

Nice teaser. I have seen this book around and been curious about it. My adult teaser is from Dead by Midnight by Carolyn Hart and my young adult teaser is from In the Arms of Stone Angels by Jordan Dane. Happy reading!

It's a new one for me too. You have me curious about Mrs. Thumb's talents.

Thanks for visiting Quirky Girls Read
