My sin was winning

In this post: Teaser, Top Ten, Tune In


Teasers:
Should Be Reading




My sin was winning. I have hidden myself in the old power, in the old skills, in woman's power.


p. 101, "The Wise Woman" by Philippa Gregory

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!

6. The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison
7. We Need To Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver
8. Kelly, the Bar Girl Who Would Be President by Sam Worthington
9. Shroud by John Banville

Tune In: Seal's Kiss from a Rose
GReads


I know I like the lyrics: "graying tower alone on the sea... a light hits the gloom on the gray,"  but didn't bother to know who sang it, (okay now I know) nor its background that it was included in the Batman Forever soundtrack, yeah old maids like me could be so boring like this; until I saw what images were used on this video - Pride and Prejudice! Well, of course, of course.... :)
