In the Cities of Coin and Spice by Catherynne M. Valente

Hey everyone! It's Tuesday which means that it's time for another teaser. And if you were here last week - well, I decided to stop reading that book. I just wasn't enjoying it and there were so many more books to read, so I decided to read those.

Right now, I'm reading In the Cities of Coin and Spice, and I'm really enjoying it. The language is beautiful, and I like that the stories are all connected. I do get a bit confused at times, however. My teaser:
"I shall not dance until my bones crack," she said. "I shall dance every morning until my heart catches on the sun, and I fill up with gold like a crystal cup!"
What about you? What are you reading this week?
How to participate in Teaser Tuesday: 
•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! Everyone loves Teaser Tuesday.


  1. Good quote, but a disappointing cover. Needs a redesign!

    Mine this week is from Gone Girl https://wp.me/p3Nz8P-1ca

  2. I like the quote but wondering about how the cover ties in.

    My TT from The Dog

  3. I like the teaser you shared, Eustacia. I enjoy books with interconnected stories. This one sounds really interesting (I couldn't help but look it up on Goodreads)!

    1. You should definitely give the two books a go! But it's best to read them in order because then the stories will all make sense.

  4. The title and teaser really captured my interest but I can't say I like the cover picture. Here's my link for this week: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1ti


I really do appreciate all comments, and I'll try my best to reply within 24 hours!
