It’s Tuesday, Where Are You? / Teaser Tuesdays

It’s Tuesday, Where Are You?

I’m in post-war Warwickshire, and I’m a regular visitor at the crumbling Hundreds Hall. The maid claims there’s a bad thing in the house making wicked things happen, but I’m sure it’s only nerves.

The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters.

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!

Mrs Ayres had obviously been sitting in one of the chairs, and in the other, facing me as I went in, sat Roderick. I had seen him only the week before, but his appearance now startled me.

From The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters, p. 110.
