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 wasn’t going to do a teaser this week. Since I’ve started doing the Top Ten Tuesday meme, my plan was to alternate them so that I only do one meme post each Tuesday. BUT. I started reading Requiem last night and I was surprised by so many lovely passages that I just couldn’t help myself.
From Requiem (Delirium #3) by Lauren Oliver
“Alex.” I repeat his name like a prayer, like a magic spell that will make everything okay again.
I flip quickly to the chapter on dreaming, scanning several pages that detail, in boring technical terms, the unintended side effect of the sure: dreamless sleep. Then I spot a sentence that makes me want to hug the book to my chest…
The book is written alternately between the point of view of Lena and Hana, which is why I included a teaser for both of them. Okay, I did try to keep this spoiler-free, so my teasers might be more of a tease than they usually are.
