Teaser Tuesdays

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!
I figure I will post a full paragraph (instead of two sentences) as my teaser today because it is just too good!


The rules of the Hunger Games are simple. In punishment for the uprising, each of the twelve districts must provide one girl and one boy, called tributes, to participate. The twenty-four tributes will be imprisoned in a vast outdoor arena that could hold anything from a burning desert to a frozen wasteland. Over a period of several weeks, the competitors must fight to the death. The last tribute standing wins.

(Pg 21, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins)

    Jessica - I found this book when I was browsing at the bookstore and I knew I just have to pick up this book after reading the blurb! It sounds so exciting! :D

    Stacy - I wouldn't want to be one too! ;)

    Jen - There's another cover for this but I'd prefer this over the other one. I can't wait to finish it!! :)

    Kim - Yes! It's keeping me on the edge! LOL.

    Violet - I'm sorry to hear this book isn't available for you. There're actually two versions for this book - US and UK. Mine is a UK version. I hope you'll be able to find this book soon!

    My rep for Scholastic, who helps me with my book fair, just gave this to me in audio book. I have to get through my monstrosity of "Voyager" (Outlander Series) audio, then will listen. I can't wait to read your review!
