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 teaser!
Here’s mine for the week:
And then, slowly, as one day followed another, springtime replaced winter, and autumn summer, it dwindled away bit by bit, crumb by crumb. It went away, and disappeared.
pg. 43, Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
A classic book…:-)
My first time reading it. Not sure why it’s taken me so long to get to it.
Thanks for sharing!
Nice teaser, thanks for sharing!
Beautiful teaser, TBM! Which translation are you reading? Happy reading!
I’m reading Mildred Marmur’s translation. Someone gave me an old copy of their novel and it’s been sitting on my shelf for many, many years.
Nice teaser. I haven’t read this but know it is a classic. Happy reading. Here is my TT http://cynthia2729.wordpress.com/2013/07/23/teaser-tuesday-july-23/
When you think about it, that could be sort of depressing. Please come see my teasers from Runt by Nora Raleigh Baskin and The White Princess by Philippa Gregory. Happy reading!
I also found it depressing. Will hop over now. Thanks!
i remember that book. those characters needed a good talkin’ to! lol
I’m not that far in, but I’m already getting that feeling.
I remember reading this book at university – in the original French 🙂
I wish I could read it in French. I don’t know enough about finding the right translators.
A good choice!
I have not read this book. I think the teaser is beautiful. I didn’t join today. My brain is fried. I don’t think I could do a blog post even if someBODY offered me a lovely glass of sweet Missouri wine or a cheeseburger.. 😀
I won’t make you post, but I hope you had a glass of wine and cheeseburger. Sounds like you need it.
A classic teaser.
Great choice. I haven’t read this classic. Lovely writing.
i wonder what went away and disappeared 🙂 great teaser! my teaser is up
Loved your teaser.
