Teaser Tuesday: No. 2

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!
I finished The Vampire Narcise a few days ago, posted my review, and am onto other things. After Narcise, I knew I couldn't just pick up another vampire novel and offer it fair treatment, so instead, I'm reading The Hunter Games by Suzanne Collins.  I'm only about 10% on so far, but I'm enjoying it. I'm also finding it terribly difficult to believe this is YA. It's so... dark... and not in the Harry Potter starts out cute and gets darker kind of way. It's dark from the start. I'm sure I'll finish it soon and post a review, but until them, here's my teaser!

The pair last year were two kids from the Seam who'd never, not one day of their lives, had enough to eat. And when they did have food, table manners were surely the last thing on their minds.
You know the kicker is that I don't generally read dystopian. I don't know that it's because I don't enjoy it, I just don't often get around to it. If this is representative of that genre, then I might like to read some more. I'd love some suggestions!


  1. Hey! Thanks for following, I'm returning the favor :). I really enjoyed the Hunger Games too.It was dark YA. The whole trilogy is really good. I haven't read any other dystopian either, but I did read the first few chapters of Divergent online and it looked like a hunger-games-ish type book.

  2. I read Hunger Games but have realised dystopian is really not for me. I will go see the movie though.

  3. Nice teaser. I'm not a huge dystopian fan but The Hungers Games are on my tbr pile so I'm definitely going to give them a go.

  4. Interesting. Glad you're enjoying it! If you get a chance, my teaser is here.
