Teaser Tuesday (7)


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!
    *****

    So guess which book I HAVE NOT been able to put down this week?? That would be Divergent by Veronica Roth! Oh yeah, let me just tell you, this book is just as good as everyone has been saying it is and it so deserves all the hype it has been getting! Here is my teaser:

    "I hold my breath as he turns the last knife in his hand. I see a glint in his eyes as he pulls his arm back and lets the knife fly. It comes straight at me, spinning, blade over handle. My body goes rigid. This time, when it hits the board, my ear stings, and blood tickles my skin. I touch my ear. He nicked it.


    And judging by the look he gives me, he did it on purpose."

    I know, I am never able to give just 2 sentences! But pretty much the whole book is like this-- action-packed, tense, and full of cliff hangers. Definitely loving it so far!

    What is everyone else reading this week??
