Teaser Tuesdays (July 24)

Teaser Tuesdays  is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:

“ You are safe enough. But I shall kill you, without fail, if you ever mention my visits here or my purchase from you to anyone, anyone at all. So far as you are concerned the moment I leave this house I have ceased to exist.

 P. 156, The Day of the Jackal”  by Frederick Forsyth

    1. Oh yes he is the villain and the protagonist of the novel. The Day of the Jackal is a classic thriller. I wasn’t so sure about it at first but now I am warming up to it.

      Thanks for following my blog! I appreciate it. 🙂

      1. It was on my grandfather’s shelf. I was not allowed to read it when I was younger. I never got around to it and
        Frederick Forsyth is someone I am aware of. I need to read it badly. YES I LOVE the classics!

    1. “It was on my grandfather’s shelf. I was not allowed to read it when I was younger.”

      No wonder! There are the obligatory sex scenes and some graphic violence that would have been considered unsuitable for young children even a while ago. Nowadays nothing seems to bother anyone.

      “YES I LOVE the classics!”

      Yay! Another Classic lit lover! 🙂
