"Stupid Princes," I muttered as I stalked down the green flecked quartz and marble hallway. "Why is it that when I don't want them, they're practically popping out of the closets? But the one time, the one time I actually need a knight in overpriced armor, they're nowhere to be found?"
"Everything was pitch-black; the only light came from my flaming hair."
The intro makes the main character seem like more than just an ordinary princess who only cares about princes. The teaser doesn't give much away but it does make the book sound really interesting and I cannot wait to read more.
""Why is there blue stuff on your face?"
Clare took a deep breath and counted to ten before she opened her eyes. "I was partying with Smurfs. I wanted to fit in."
I feel a bit mean with the first quote but it's so much more intriguing as one sentence, I haven't started reading this so I didn't want any explanation for such a ridiculous sentence.
I love the second quote because it just sounds so sarcastic and I love sarcasm in characters!
