Teaser Tuesdays: Baker's Magic by Diane Zahler (Feb 9)

Okay, so for those of you who are new to this meme, here's how it works:

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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 current read is Baker's Magic by Diane Zahler.

Bee is an orphan, alone in a poor, crumbling kingdom. In desperation, she steals a bun from a bakery, and to her surprise, the baker offers her a place at his shop. As she learns to bake, Bee discovers that she has a magical power. When a new friend desperately needs her help against an evil mage, Bee wonders what an orphan girl with only a small bit of magic can do. Bee's journey to help her friend becomes a journey to save the kingdom, and a discovery of the meaning of family.
(336 pages)


Here's this week's teaser, from page 1:
Bee had never been so hungry in her life.
Oh, she'd been hungry plenty of times. Stomach-growling, eat-a-big-meal hungry. But this was different. This hunger clawed at her insides, making her legs weak and her vision blurry. 
Let me know what you think of the book, and check back on Friday for my review! Also, while you're here, why don't you check out my giveaway? You can enter to win an ARC of Jennifer Nielsen's latest novel, Rise of the Wolf!

  3. Your Teaser makes me want to get to know this character better. I wonder what circumstances have led her to such extreme hunger.
