Teaser Tuesday (January 6)


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 this week is from The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins

The Girl On The Train


To everyone else in this carriage I must look normal; I’m doing exactly what they do: commuting to work, making appointments, ticking things off lists.
Just goes to show.

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and every evening. Every day she passes the same Victorian terraces, stops at the same signal, and sees the same couple, breakfasting on their roof terrace. Jason and Jess seem so happy together.
Then one day Rachel sees something she shouldn’t have seen, and soon after, Jess disappears. Suddenly Rachel is chasing the truth and unable to trust anyone. Not even herself. Goodreads

My Teaser

I am going to see Jason.
I’m not going to visit him, I’m not going to turn up at his house and knock on the door. Nothing like that. Nothing crazy. I just want to go past his house, roll by on the train. I’ve nothing else to do, and I don’t feel like going home.

So what do you think? Are you intrigued enough to want to know more?

Please share your teasers in the comments box below.

  1. Sounds good, at first I thought it was WHAT SHE SAW by Sheila Lowe about a girl on a train who has Amnesia which is one I really liked.


  2. Ahh I really want to read this novel! The Girl On The Train sounds intriguing and it is very high on my wishlist, to be bought as soon as I downsized my TBR pile…
