Teaser Tuesday: Shatter Me


Hi, everybody! :)

Teaser Tuesdays is an awesome meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading that lets us be major teases for a day. It's really fun, and I love to participate whenever I'm reading a book I feel the world needs to hear about!

The Rules: 
  • 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!

Shatter Me by Maggie Stiefvater
(Find it on Goodreads)

MY TEASER:
I have no idea where I am. 
I only know that I was transported by someone in a white van who drove 6 hours and 37 minutes to get me here. I know I was handcuffed to my seat. I know I was strapped to my chair. I know my parents never bothered to say good bye. I know I didn't cry as I was taken away. 
I know the sky falls down every day.

~Juliette on pg. 1-2
I just started this one last night and I already know it's going to be one of those books that will take forever to write a review for. It's absolutely AMAZING! I love Tahereh Mafi's prose, and the way some of Juliette's throughts are written with a strike through it. :)

ARE YOU A TEASE THIS TUESDAY?

  4. I really enjoyed this one Mimi! The crossed out lines took a little getting used to, but I ended up liking them because I felt like we were getting little secret truths about Juliette we wouldn't have gotten otherwise:) I know what you mean about taking forever to write a review as well, the ones I love most are always the hardest to write.

  19. I absolutely love that part too! So awesome. I can't wait to get back to it and finish it up! Even though I love my review books, the dead-line sometimes messes up these books I seriously need to read! Lol. Great teaser choice. :D
