Teaser Tuesdays (April 10)

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

• Grab your current read

• Open to a random page

• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

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!)

• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

 My Teaser:

“ ‘Dr. Quimper’s coming to tea. Father. It’s his birthday today and…’

‘Birthday?’ snorted the old man, ‘what’s he doing with a birthday? Birthdays are only for children. I never count my birthdays and I won’t let anyone else celebrate them either.’

‘Much cheaper,’ agreed Cedric. ‘You save the price of candles on your cake.’

‘That’s enough from you, boy,’ said Mr. Crackenthorpe.”

4.50 from Paddington”  by Agatha Christie.



  1. Anything by Agatha Christie is going to be a great teaser, she is the best exponent of the art.
    I quite agree that birthdays are for children. Hubbie and I have our birthdays one day apart, but we have never celebrated in 33 years together.
    Do I break a rule and mark this one for a re-read?
    Thanks for sharing and enjoy the rest of your week.

    1. Ah yes anything by her makes a great teaser. She was so funny and often very insightful. That’s why I love her.

      I feel both happiness and sadness on my birthdays. I do celebrate with a cake and gifts my family gives me and that makes me happy but I feel sad with the thought of another year gone by.

    1. I love the response too. Just see the old man’s arrogance! He won’t celebrate his own birthday and won’t let anyone else celebrate them too. He deserves a nice comeback like that. 😉

    1. Hi! Thanks fro dropping by my blog!

      Thanks for loving the teaser! 🙂

      Your teaser reminds me why I don’t read romances. They tend to make me feel even more depressed than usual.
