Teaser Tuesday – Strangers

This isn’t actually my current read because I have just finished it few hours ago…but since I haven’t touched another book yet…it can be consider as current book, right?

It’s a book by Japanese writer, Taichi Yamada called Strangers. It’s a ghost story with a lot of heart in it.

My teaser is from page 96

As I turned from the shop-lined street into the alley and began climbing the metal staircase as softly as I could, I felt a knot of terror forming in the pit of my stomach again. I halted my steps before reaching the top.

What exactly were those people in the end? Were they some kind of shape-shifting foxes or badgers which old legends tell?

What is Teaser Tuesday?

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  4. 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!)
  5. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

    @stephanie well it’s not about shapeshifter…It was only what he tought ‘they’ would be

    @Justbookreading Yup it is a good read 🙂

    @Lisa It’s Japanese book, when they see their dead relative comes back to life…they sometimes assume that a tanuki (badgers) is pretending to be them. It’s one of Japanese Famous Legend. But the book it self is NOT about a Tanuki who tries to deceive the main character. Yup I do enjoy it 🙂 it’s really good

Say something so I know you have read my post, THANK YOU for reading :)
