The Beautiful and Damned by F.Scott Fitzgerald

A classic,’ suggested Anthony, ‘is a successful book that has survived the reaction of the next period or generation. Then it’s safe, like a style in architecture or furniture. It’s acquired a picturesque dignity to take the place of its fashion.

~ The Beautiful and Damned by F.Scott Fitzgerald

I picked up this book from the shelf to keep it on my bedside reading table as a reminder that I plan to read this book in March as part of Allie’s Modern March Reading Event.

You know what happened next, right? I started on a few pages and before I knew it I am completely drawn into the book, and unless something distracts me, I will be well on the way to finishing it by the end of this month itself.

This is probably the first time I finish a reading event before the event even starts :D.

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!

    • @Jenn: You should read this. It’s very nice, but I needed to get over the odd conversational style that was prevalent at the time.

  • Interesting teaser! Here is my teaser for this week.

  • He might be on to something there.
