This week my teaser lines come from A Head Full of Ghosts (William Morrow, June 2015), Paul Tremblay's chiller about a teenaged girl's apparent descent into madness, as remembered years later by her younger sister. This quote is from page 52 (Loc. 839 of the Kindle edition):
That night, standing in Marjorie's doorway, when I knew nothing of night terrors and old plaster, I saw Marjorie clinging to the wall like a spider.... Her arms and legs were spread-eagled, with her hands, wrists, feet, and ankles sunk into the wall as though it were slowly absorbing her.Just hangin' around, Sis?
For some reason, I've been reading a ton of ghostly and gothic tales this year. I didn't set out to do that, so I'm not really sure how it happened. This book seems to be made up of bits from just about every horror film/novel/TV-show I've ever read or seen. But I think that's deliberate. So far, I'm enjoying it just enough to keep on reading.
So, what do you think? Sound like something you'd continue with? Do you read spooky books, or do you prefer something a little more "down to earth"?
