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.
  • 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!

He smiled, and she couldn't help it, she smiled back. She was pathetic. Even when she knew he was trying to trick her, she still liked him. She was like some brainless girl in a horror movie, the kind of girl you scream at from the sofa because she can't see that she should leave right now or she'll be turned into mince.


(Pg 164, You Against Me by Jenny Downham)



This isn't the first time I broke the rules and share not two sentences but the whole paragraph from a book. Sometimes, two sentences are enough to capture a reader's attention but other times having read two sentences are just not enough. It isn't because they are not good, but on the contrary they are so good that you simply want to read the whole paragraph, the whole page, the whole chapter, the whole book. . . you get the idea. I think You Against Me is such a book; I just wish time could stop now so I can read to my heart's content without worrying about work or anything else. Yes I could only wish!

    I love it when a book is that good and you just want to put everything aside. This sounds really good. Enjoy it and tell us all about it :)

    Perfect description. We all scream at that stupid woman, but there are still times when we know we are acting just like her!
