Teaser Tuesdays: The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In A Ship Of Her Own Making!

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!

My Quote comes from page 76 of:
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In A Ship Of Her Own Making
by Catherynne M. Valente

"Being careful and clever readers, you must now wonder if your wool-gathering narrator has completely forgotten the jeweled key that so loyally followed September into Fairyland.  Not so!  But a key's adventuring is of necessity a quieter thing than a girl's, more single-minded and also more fraught with loneliness."

Ah, I'm so glad this book is out in 'book' form! I remember back when Valente wrote it in the midst of the economic downturn just to keep herself afloat... such courage and imagination that woman has. Great teaser!

And many thanks for visiting my blog today!

Sounds like a cool book. I like the story telling aspect that comes through in your teaser.
