Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly book meme originally featured at Should Be Reading. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

After recently reading a classic (The Picture of Dorian Gray) and a drama (The Husband’s Secret) I have decided to really switch it up this time, so I dove right into Eragon. I haven’t read this series when I was younger, but I do remember it being a big deal in the past, with a movie made of it and all (apparently the movie was not so great and quite disappointing so I may not watch it). Anyway I am only a few chapters in but so far I am enjoying it. Here is the teaser for this one!

“Eragon found the stone both beautiful and frightening. Where did it come from? Does it have a purpose? Then a more disturbing thought came to him: Was it sent here by accident, or am I meant to have it?” (8)

Goldfinch in the News

green_line_faded_with_leaf_smallerFor today’s edition of random news, I have chosen to highlight a particular rumour regarding The Goldfinch. Something about it possibly made into a cinematic feature in the near future. That’s right ladies and gentlemen! Apparently, her other novels were considered for Hollywood films in the past (one was even pushed for back in 2002 by Gwyneth Paltrow!!!). Unfortunately, those were scrapped early on in the process. Can The Goldfinch get Donna Tartt to the big screen? Would be really interesting to see who they choose to play the characters! Anyway, I am clearly just getting carried away here so I will shush up and let you read the article yourself! Would love to hear your opinions regarding this issue!!! Do you think it can be done with quality?

*I do apologize for the rather shanty quality, that’s what owning a iPhone 4 will get you these days!
