Teaser Tuesday 19

13 July 2010

This is how it works:

  • 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!

A quick one from The Red Tree by Caitlín R Kiernan – a diary-format horror novel about a writer having an even less productive summer than I am. (At least I’m not being haunted by a dead lover or an old oak tree.)

Anyway, I’m left to conclude that the late Dr. Harvey’s unfinished book, in all likelihood, went to the local landfill or a bonfire or whatever, if it’s true that the daughter in Maine claimed none of his effects. I can’t imagine why Blanchard would have lied about something like that. All that survives is that one peculiar page, incomplete reflections on ‘bloody apples’ from a tree that died seventy years ago. (p. 67)

    Ooooh Creepy!! I like the “Bloody apples”!!

    Being haunted by dead lovers is perhaps preferable to being haunted by a old oak tree!!

    Good grief!
    Take care

  2. Actually, in this book there may not be much ‘or’ about it…

  3. Wow, this sounds wonderful! Why is it I’m just now hearing about this one? It’s going on my “new find” list right away. Thanks for the great teaser!

    I would’ve done this but I left my book at home…
