Teaser Tuesday: Frankenstein

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Basically, open the book you’re currently reading and share a couple of sentences from that page on your blog.   Avoid spoilers of course.

Okay, I cheated and chose a quote I found interesting from the book, instead of a random page:

If the study to which you apply yourself has a tendency to weaken your affections, and to destroy your taste for those simple pleasures in which no alloy could possibly mix, then that study is certainly unlawful , that is to say, not befitting the human mind.

from Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley’s Frankenstein, p. 55

  1. Frankenstein was one of the many books I had to reread for school when I moved from Illinois to California. It was the only one, however, that I loved both times around!

  2. Great teaser! I liked this book when I read it, hope you enjoy it!
