Teaser Tuesdays (1)


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!

Ally's Teaser:
"That's always seemed so ridiculous to me, that people would want to be around someone because they're pretty. It's like picking your breakfast cereals based on color instead of taste."
p. 37, Paper Towns by John Green
Lee's Teaser:
"But you must have known this the moment you set foot back on this island: If anyone finds out about what we're doing, we won't just have a riot. We'll have a revolution."
p. 247, Partials by Dan Wells

We're excited to participate in this meme for the first time! Be sure to leave the link to your TT posts so we can check them out!

    1. They were a joint effort. Ally did all of the hard work; she drew the header and the background. I then colored her scanned sketches in Photoshop.

      Thanks for the follow!
