Teaser Tuesday – Frankenstein

 Should Be Reading

 TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly event, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading, where you ‘tease’ others with a little bit from the book you’re currently reading, making them want to read it, too! :D Feel free to play along! You just…


  • 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

    Some miracle might have produced it, yet the stages of the discovery were distinct and probable.  After days and nights of incredible labour and fatigue, I succeeded in discovering the cause of generation of life; nay, more, I became myself capable of bestowing animation upon lifeless matter.

    Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, Chapter 4

    Your turn.

      I love your teaser! Every autumn I think, “I must read Frankenstein this year.” Every autumn it never happens. Maybe this year is the year! (For some weird reason, I just can’t make myself even think of Frankenstein any other time of the year. It seems like a “curl up with a blanket and some cocoa” kind of book!)

      It’s so short that I don’t know why I’ve waited! I’m taking it on an airplane, so I’ll be curled up by a window with soft drinks and peanuts 🙂

      With all the terrible movies made from Shelley’s idea, I sometimes forget the poetry of her writing. This is both a haunting and beautiful quote.
