Teaser Tuesdays!

It’s time for another Tuesday Teaser! I’m going to have my review of last week’s Teasder, Let the Right One In, should be posted tomorrow. In the meantime, I’ve got a snippet from a really good mystery novel, The Dead Hour.

Now, you know how the Teasers work: Open your current read, pick 2 interesting sentences, and post them here. No spoilers — and be sure to tell us about the book, so we can grab it up!

In this Teaser, Kate is just beginning to realize how much of a mess she has really become:

Kate gasped.  It was too dark for color but she saw black tendrils coming from her nose, a thin black mess with bits, like an octopus climbing out of her nose legs first, a black string across her cheek into her hair, black into her mouth, black all over her chin.

What caused all that?  Check back later this week for my review to find out!

    Wow, what an eerie teaser. It’s so intriguing you want to find out what’s going on — and are a little afraid to as well. Great choice!

    My own teaser is at Bookishgal.

    Gross!! I’m definitely interested, but worried this is a creepy book. Creepy and I don’t get along too well.

    M-C, it’s really not a creepy book. It’s a mystery novel, and the character in question has spent the last few days…well, overindulging and abusing her nostrils, if you know what I mean. 🙂

    What is wrong???? I’m teased!
