Teaser Tuesdays (3)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Miz B at 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.

My teaser:

All the smart young men about town clamoured for the honour of being the apple of discord. I'd even have joined in the fray myself if the high favour attained at that time by the Comtesse de ------ had allowed me to look elsewhere until I'd been fully rewarded...

~ Page 208, Les Liasons Dangereuses by Choderlos de Laclos


  1. Ooh, I love the beautiful language in the classics! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Love classics! I haven't read this one myself, but have a copy of it waiting to be read.

  4. Interesting teaser, New Follower. =]
    Here is my Teaser for this week.. =]

  5. Great teaser! Thank for stopping by.

  6. I have such a hard time reading classics, because it takes me too much time and focus to figure out what exactly they are getting at! by the time I've unraveled the meaning of a sentence it's sort of sucked the joy out of reading. I really admire people who can read classics like this for fun!

    Thanks for hopping by my blog too!

  8. Thanks for all the comments guys! I'm really enjoying the book, and thankfully it's quite easy to read and has a really modern feel to it :)

  9. Have not read this one myself, but I do enjoy dipping into the classics now and then. Thanks for visiting Thursday--sorry this didn't get posted then, but it kept freezing on me when I'd try to put it through.

  10. Hmm this one sounds interesting. For some reason I can't recall having seen much of this one... But great teaser. :) Thanks for stopping by!
