Teaser Tuesdays #1: Dracula

teasertuesdays2014e

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!


Here’s my teaser:

We are progressing. My friend has now a whole colony of sparrows, and his flies and spiders are almost obliterated.

From Dracula by Bram Stoker

Oh, and I’m so sorry! I just realized today is a Wednesday!

    1. You are so right! Hahaha! Thanks for reminding me! And here I thought I was late! 😉

      I’m enjoying Dracula; didn’t expect it to be exciting! Haven’t heard of Fantômas. But I might try to read it because I haven’t read any classic French book and I’m learning French–although I don’t think I’d be able to read the French version; I’d stick with the English version. Ha! 🙂

      1. I also got around to reading Frankenstein a few years ago. Like Dracula, there is so much more to the book. Although with all the movies, you wonder how there could be more, lol.

        Kudos to you for learning French! You’ll be welcome to join http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FrenchLiterature any time. The conversation is in English – what there is of it. We have a couple of members from France and a couple of more who read French. It’s very quiet, though. Mostly we just get book recommendations and sometimes tips on which translations. If you are ever interested in Balzac or Zola, we have blogs devoted to each of them with tons of information.

      2. Frankenstein is also on my to-read list! I already bought my own copy.

        Wow, thanks for the invite! I will definitely check that out! 🙂

        Have a great week!
