The original sentence: "My interest quickened" is perfectly good English. The phrase is a bit literary. A Google search reveals that quite a few recent books have used the phrase. https://www.google.ca/?gfe_rd=c...2&start=10

You can add "My interest was piqued" as an alternative.

A perfect example of a really weird but completely correct phrase that every language has acquired over centuries of development.
