Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Here is how it works.

Grab the book you are currently reading (anything at all)
Open the book to any random page.
Share 2 "teaser" sentences from anywhere on the page.
Please Make Sure They Are Not Spoilers!
(Don't Give Too Much Away) Just enough to pique our interest.
List the book and author so other participants can get their hand on it if they choose to read it as well.

For This Week:

A little gasping sound escaped from the girl's lips, and I turned and looked at her. There was horror on her face now, and those debonair high spirits of hers were quenched utterly.

From The Murder on the Links by Agatha Christie

"Debonair high spirits"...what a great turn of phrase! Cool teaser.

Krista said...

Ooooo, kind of scary! Great teaser!

Zia said...

Oooh creepy. Loved it!

Alyssa Kirk said...

Gotta love Agatha Christie. Great teaser, Ryan.

Let me know what you think!

Amy said...

Oooo, that's a great teaser. I really want to read some Christie soon!

Literature Crazy said...

The queen of mysteries... another good quote. Thanks for posting the tease.

Lisa said...

I love Agatha Christie! Excellent choice!

My teasers are here.

Phyl said...

Great teaser! Even if it's probably not very good news at all for the girl herself. They drop like flies in Agatha Christie books. Excellent choice.

My own teaser is at Bookishgal.

Melissa (My words and pages) said...

This is really great! I have not yet read an Agatha Christie book. It sounds really good, I may have to add one to the tbr pile.

If you would like to stop by mine is up and running.

Ryan said...

Thanks everyone for stopping by and commenting. I really appreciate it. I'm loving the book so far and encourage everyone to read Agatha Christie's books.

I love Agatha Christie. Every time I read a teaser or review, it makes me want to go and pick one up.

Ryan said...

Michelle, Her books have the best teasers.

Carol, just make sure you follow through with that impulse :-)
