Teaser Tuesday: 26th July 2016

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat If you want to join in grab your current read, flick to a random page, select two sentences (without spoilers) and share them in a blog post or in the comments of Books and a Beat.

TeaserThis week my teaser is from classic romance Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. It’s one of my all time favourite books and I recently bought a brand new hardback copy from Waterstones. I’d been staring at it in the shops for months and finally caved. Look it’s just sooo pretty.

Oh, there probably is a mild spoiler in my teaser but I’m assuming everyone knows the story 🙂

My Teaser

I was experiencing an ordeal: a hand of fiery iron grasped my vitals. Terrible moment: full of struggle, blackness, burning! Not a human being that ever lived could wish to be better loved than I was loved; and him who thus loved me I absolutely worshipped: and I must renounce love and idol. One drear word comprised my intolerable duty – “Depart!”

~ Page 380, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

 


Happy reading everyone.

  1. I have to confess that I have never read this classic… Probably mostly because I’m not really a romance fan in the first place, because I have never read most other historical romance classics either (oops?). I like your teaser though!
