Teaser Tuesday: Bound

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 "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!


This week my teaser comes from Bound, although technically it's not a teaser - it's the Abigail Adams quote from the first page of the book. But it's one I'd not seen before and I love it. It put the title in a whole new perspective for me.

Bound: A Novel     Humanity obliges us to be affected with the distresses and Miserys of our fellow creatures. Friendship is a band yet stronger, which causes us to feel with greater tenderness the afflictions of our Friends.
     And there is a tye more binding than Humanity, and stronger than Friendship, which makes us anxious for the happiness and welfare of those to whom it binds us. It makes their Misfortunes, Sorrows and afflictions, our own. Unite these, and there is a threefold cord - by this cord I am not ashamed to own myself bound.

  4. Lovely quotation. Adams was a gifted writer and thinker. My teaser is from Naamah's Curse by Jacqueline Carey.
