Teaser Tuesdays


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Here is how it works.

Grab the book you are currently reading (anything at all)
Open the book to any random page.
Share 2 "teaser" sentences from anywhere on the page.
Please Make Sure They Are Not Spoilers!
(Don't Give Too Much Away) Just enough to pique our interest.
List the book and author so other participants can get their
hand on it if they choose to read it as well.

For This Week:

Darkness has no effect upon my fancy; and a churchyard was to me merely the receptacle of bodies deprived of life, which from being the seat of beauty and strength, and had become food for the worm. Now I was led to examine the cause and progress of this decay, and forced to spend the days and nights in vaults and charnel-houses.

From Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Hi!
I haven't actually read the book but have seen several different movies. I would really like to read the book though. Mine is posted at my place, Just Books. Have a great day!

Great teaser - I remember reading this for a college course. I remember being very touched by this book by the time it was over - it was a very moving story.

Here's my Teaser! ~ Wendi

Perfect selection for fall! I've never read it, but will one day.

Great teaser from a great book! Read it for the first time when I was a teenager, and I've reread it several times since then. It's always been one of my favorites.

My son is going to read this book for his english class, when he does, I will be reading it as well.

Great teaser which has me wondering more about the book.

Here is my Teaser Tuesday

Hmmmm... reminds me of the poem "Thanatopsis" by William Cullen Bryant. Great teaser this week :) Here's my teaser.

Sherrie, thank you so much for stopping by. This is actually my first time with the book and am loving it. I hope you get a chance to pick it up sometime soon.

Wendi, thanks for the comments. I am just starting to read about his college years and have been very impressed with it so far.

JoAnn, thank you for coming by. I'm pleasently surprised by what I've read so far. It's not what I was picturing it to be and am more than happy about that.

Joy, thank you for visiting this morning. I'm always glad to hear from someone else who loves a book I'm reading. It just reinforces for me what I'm experiencing.

ibeeeg, thanks for stopping by. If you remember to stop by and let me know what you and your son thought of the book. It would be really interesting to hear what others thinks of it.

Susan, thanks for stopping by and for mentioning a poem I hadn't read before. I always like new discoveries.

Fantastic teaser for the season!!

Ryan G said...

Melissa, thanks for the stop by and get the book the next time you are at the store.

Zia, Thanks I have a feeling most of my reading is going to be in this direction for a month or 2.

Very sinister! I really need to read this classic...just haven't found the time yet! Great teaser. Thanks for coming by my blog earlier, too. :)

Ryan G said...

Celia, you are more than welcome!

booktumbling said...

I have yet to read this classic. Though, I did just finish Frankenstein by Dean Koontz - have a feeling it isn't the same!

carolsnotebook said...

Great teaser. It's been a while since I've read this one. Maybe I should make it an October read.

Ryan G said...

Booktumbling, I don't think it is either :-). Thaks for stopping by !

Carol, thank you for coming over. I think it would make a terrific October read!

Catherine @ The Blonde Diaries said...

What a great teaser. I've never read this book but I probably should. Maybe I'll put it on my casual classics challenge list for next year.

Here's my teaser

Ryan G said...

Catherine, thank you so much for stopping by. If you do end up reading it please come by and let me know what you thought.

I planned on reading this for B&N but just got so caught up on others

Ryan G said...

Deb, that's ok. Someone is already complaining that no one is posting on it. I don't think they wanted to read the book to beging with but who knows.

Krista said...
