Teaser Tuesday

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 (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!
* Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!


Here's the teaser:

I could just make out, through the darkness, that peculiar stain or smudge--and then my heart sank as I spotted, a yard or so from it, a similar mark. Further off I thought I saw another.

It's from The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters, and all I have to say is I'm glad I have a good fun murder mystery waiting for me at the end of it because this book is creeping me out. But I have to find out what's going on.

Sounds quite creepy. Goodness. I haven't read this one, but I liked what I have read by her.

I read this last year and loved it! It certainly is creepy though :)

Excellent teaser this week. I am re-reading Watership Down by Richard Adams this week. You can find my teaser here.
