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 apparition had reached the landing halfway up and was therefore on the spot nearest the window, where at sight of me, it stopped short and fixed me exactly as it had fixed me from the tower and from the garden. He knew me as well as I knew him; and so, in the cold, faint twilight, with a glimmer in the high glass and another on the polish of the oak stair below, we faced each other in our common intensity.




(Pg 39, The Turn of the Screw by Henry James)

    What is this teaser talking about? It gives me the creeps!


  6. Melody Says:

    Julia - It sure is!

    Iliana - Oh, I didn't know there's a production of it. How I wish our TV station airs it here!

    Alice - Great! I can't wait to hear your thoughts when you get to it!

    Wendy - I can imagine how interesting it'd be for your class discussion! This story is a true classic! ;)

    Veens - It's about the main character seeing a ghost, so of course it's creepy. :P
