Teaser Tuesday #18

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB from 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! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:

"However, toward the end of it, and on hearing some slight rustle behind me, I half-turned, discreetly, and caught a glimpse of another mourner, a woman, who must have slipped into the church after we of the funeral party had taken our places and who stood several rows behind and quite alone, very erect and still, and not holding a prayer book. She was dressed in deepest black, in the style of full mourning that had rather gone out of fashion except, I imagined, in court circles on the most formal of occasions." Page 44 from The Woman in Black by Susan Hill

I just started reading this book so I'm only on page 4. I randomly opened up a page in the book and loved that the above was what I saw. It was a perfect description of what the book is about. I do notice though that Susan Hill loves really long sentences. I might have a hard time not letting my "grammar Nazi" side come out, lol.


  1. Ooh. Sounds creepy. Will have to add it to the list.

  2. Very creepy! I saw the movie a while back but I think I blocked out what happened. I don't like scary movies but as I recall it was more suspenseful. I bet the book would be really good.

    Here's mine:

  6. Yeah it does have a lot of run-on sentences. But that's what make it so descriptive. I do hope you like it.

  7. Nice! A bit creepy too! Saw this movie and thought it was kind of blah. Still had a creep factor to it though!

    Here's my Teaser

    Have a GREAT day!

  8. Looks like a dark read. Thanks for sharing!

  9. You're right -- those sure are long sentences! I have a grammar Nazi too, and she's not very forgiving.
    My Teaser is from REMEMBER ME?

  10. Great teaser! I saw this film, though I've never read the book. This teaser is very descriptive and definitely sets the tone of the story. Awesome! :D

  11. Great teaser! I saw the movie, but heard that the end of the book is a bit different.

  12. Great teaser and very interesting cover. Looking forward to your review.
