Teaser Tuesday: A Literary Smörgåsbord
July 21, 2009 at 12:00 am Kate
Hey everyone, and welcome back to Teaser Tuesday! For those of you who missed last week, essentially this is a sampling of the books I plan on reviewing in the future — I’ve just grabbed the pile, opened to a random page for each one, and then chose two sentences between lines seven and 12 on that page.
Disclaimer: I make no promises regarding when the books listed here will be reviewed :P
Dracula, by Bram Stoker
‘God! God! God!’ he said. ‘What have we done, what has this poor thing done, that we are so beset?’
You Had Me At Good-bye, by Tracey Bateman
‘What do you think you’re doing?’
‘Since we’ve just established that you are indeed nothing but a child, I assume you are waiting for me to wipe the milk from your upper lip.’
Howards End, by E. M. Forster
Tibby was sensitive to beauty, the experience was new, and and he gave a description of his visit that was almost glowing. The august and mellow university, soaked with the richness of the western counties that it has served for a thousand years, appealed at once to the boy’s taste; it was the kind of thing he could understand, and he understood it all the better because it was empty.
