Well, I’m now half done with Les Mis! The teaser I’ve chosen this week really highlights how wonderfully written the book is, and why it’s been a small struggle for me to read. I’m curious what books other people have continued to read even when it’s a struggle?

The rules for Teaser Tuesday, hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading, are simple:

  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share two “teaser” sentences from that page (without spoiling the book!)
  4. Include the title and author so others can find the book if they enjoyed your teaser

This week’s teaser:

“Paris has a child and the forest has a bird; the bird is called the sparrow; the child is called the gamin.

Couple these two ideas, the one containing all the heat of the furnace, the other all the light of the dawn; strike together these two sparks, Paris and infancy; and there leaps forth from them a little creature.”

~Les Misérables, by Victor Hugo, page 503
