Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. This week I'm reading a classic (which really needs no introduction): Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. This is actually one of my favorite books from high school. And now being older I've decided to reread the novel. I think it is so interesting how a persons interpretation of a book changes with age!So without further ado here's my teaser for the week!

"About the middle of the next day, as she was in her room getting ready fora walk, a sudden noise below seemed to speak the whole house in confusion; and,after listening a moment, she heard somebody running up the stairs in a violent hurry, and calling loudly after her.She opened the door and met Maria at the landing-place, who, breathless with agitation cried out---
Oh my dear Eliza!"

~pg. 152 Pride And Prejudice by Jane Austen

Let me know your thoughts on classics, maybe even whats your favorite! And as always I look forward to seeing everyones teasers for the week!

LOL=Lots of Love


  1. So fun! And it really is a teaser, even though I know the book well. It's also kind of interesting to see how looooong the sentences are compared to much of contemporary literature.

    My teaser is here.

  2. The last words of the teaser made me smile :)
    I actually haven't read a lot of classics, I keep postponing reading them, although I've read Pride & Prejudice & loved it!

  3. I love Jane Austen and Pride & Prejudice is my absolute fave. But before Jane Austen, I first discovered Jane Eyre which is my all time favorite. I've read and re-read this book many times. Just discovered your blog and am enjoying it immensely.


  4. After reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, I wanted to read the classic again. thanks for reminding me.
