Teaser Tuesdays

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

My teaser for today:

The four of them stood, for the first time, in the wide, dark entrance hall of Hill House. Around them the house steadied and located them, above them the hills slept watchfully, small eddies of air and sound and movement stirred and waited and whispered, and the center of consciousness was somehow the small space where they stood, four separated people, and looked trustingly at one another.




(Pg 41, The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson)

    Sandy, Alice, Amy, Beth, Gautami, Ceri, Care, Andreea, Nymeth, Jennifer, Naida & Iliana - I apologise for this comment to all. I really appreciate your comments but I'm still having a hard time catching up on everything! :P I really wish there're more than 24 hours a day!

    I'm currently reading this book and I really love the atmosphere of this story. It's dark, creepy and a terrific haunted house story. I can't wait to finish this book!
