Teaser Tuesdays: The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just open your current read to a random page and share a few sentences. Be careful not to include spoilers!

Head’s up, friends: expect a wildly raving review of The Song of Achilles in the next few days. I am mad for this book. I’ve chosen a teaser for you today that I especially enjoyed.

This was no slouchy prince of wine halls and debauchery, as Easterners were said to be. This was a man who moved like the gods were watching; every gesture he made was upright and correct. There was no one else it could be but Hector.

I reread this passage a few times, it made me so happy. Run out and get you a copy.

What are you reading this week?

  1. Sounds like a fun book! I’m looking forward to your review. Thanks for sharing. My teaser is here.

  2. Dammit — I grabbed an ARC of that book months ago, didn’t get to it — and now it’s in a box somewhere in my new house where it will remain until we get the carpenter to build our Wall of Bookshelves. Oh well — at least I can guess it will be worth waiting for!

  3. What a lovely passage. I’ve been debating whether I should get this, but now I think I will 🙂
