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!
“Why is it that this form of ambition–curiosity-which entered into the temptation of our first parent, is so specially hart to resist? Knowledge is power–and power of one sort or another is the secret lust of human souls; and here is, beside the sense of exploration, the undefinable interest of a story, and above all, something forbidden, to stimulate the contumacious appetite.”
–Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, Uncle Silas
This is a long and slow going book…I’m about halfway through it, so be patient with my blogging this week. Hopefully I can make it through in the next few days and can commence more active posts!
