Theme Thursday: Face

Theme Thursday is a weekly event hosted by Reading Between the Pages. Each Thursday, a theme is posted for that week. Participants select a conversation, snippet, or sentence from whatever book they're reading and post it for everyone to read. It's a great way to discover new books and authors.

This week's theme is Face (Features), and here's my snippet, from Agatha Christie's Dead Man's Folly:
She was wearing a big coolie-style hat of vivid magenta straw. Beneath it her face showed its pinky reflection on the dead-white surface of her skin. She was heavily made up in an exotic un-English style. Dead-white matt skin; vivid cyclamen lips, mascara applied lavishly to the eyes. Her hair showed beneath the hat, black and smooth, fitting like a velvet cap. There was a languorous un-English beauty about the face. (p.25)


  1. Love Agatha's suspenseful books!

  2. Wow, you couldn't pick a better for the Theme this week. I once had a cyclamen. I think those are tubers. Anyway it comes in such a pretty pink. Don't know about other colors.

  3. Very nice...yours is much more descriptive than mine. And I had to hunt a bit for it. Here's my Theme


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
