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.
This week my teaser comes from Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye which is kind of a gothic re telling of Jane Eyre. I say kind of because the main character refers to the literary heroine quite regularly and compares their lives and circumstances. Their lives are fairly similar, both are orphaned, sent off to the worst possible boarding school and end up working as governesses but Ms Steele has slightly more flexible morals and beliefs than Ms Eyre.
This has been one of my favourite reads this year and definitely one I’d recommend.
Some cities bustle, some meander, I have read; London blazes, and it incinerates. London is the wolf’s maw. From the instant I arrived there, I loved every smouldering inch of it.
