Meme: Teaser Tuesdays

Posted 19 April, 2010 by Lianne in Meme / 18 Comments

Greetings! I missed last week’s Teaser Tuesdays because I was frantically studying for my Russian final exam. But I’m back home now for the summer and cracking at my TBR list =)

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
– 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!

Should Be Reading

My teaser for this week: “There was more pleasure for Roland and Maud in their walk, the next day, along the becks to the fosses. They walked out from Goathland and saw the threads and glassy interrupted fans of the Mallyan Sprout; they scrambled along river paths above the running peaty water, and crossed moorland,s crambling down again to riversides.” – p. 264, Possession by A.S. Byatt.

This book has been on my TBR list since autumn last year; I’ve heard a lot about this book on GoodReads over the past year and a lot of positive reviews so I decided to check it out. It’s pretty interesting with a lot of different types of medium used to convey the story (i.e. correspondence, biography exerpts, etc.) and it’s interesting not only to read as Maud and Roland piece together the story but also how the story itself unfolded in the past. My only gripe with it is the fact that it’s heavy on literary/poetic theory and feminism, but that’s just a personal academic preference of mine. Otherwise, it’s been pretty interesting so far! =)

    I’ve never read any Byatt but it seems you either love the writing or can’t stand it. Your teaser is beautiful.

  2. Reading your book would add a lot of natural vocabulary to our speech–beck, fosses, sprout. I only know “beck” from hiking in England! Good luck with your prep for Russian exam.
