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!

This weeks Teaser comes from... Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi 

"1 word, 2 lips, 3 4 5 fingers form 1 fist.
1 corner, 2 parents, 3 4 5 reasons to hide.
1 child, 2 eyes, 3 4 17 years of fear.
A broken broomstick, a pair of wild faces, angry whispers, locks on my door.
Look at me, is what I wanted to say to you. Talk to me every once in a while. Find me a cure for these tears, I'd really like to exhale for the first time in my life." 
- page 31 [ebook]

"I always wondered how it would happen. I wonder if this will make my parents happy.
Someone is laughing. 'Well aren't you a little shit?'
I don't even know if they're talking to me. I can hardly focus on keeping my arms upright.
'She's not even crying.' someone adds. 'The girls are usually begging for mercy by now.'" - Page 39 [ebook]

That is all for this weeks teaser! I hope you enjoyed a look inside Shatter me by Tahereh Mafi. This was a great book. Be sure to leave me a link to your teaser, I want to get a taste of what you've been reading!

Happy Reading!

  7. I read this in the beginning of 2012, and loved it. It rocked. Now the sequel is sitting unread on my shelf, growling at me to come get it. *sigh* Thanks for stepping by and sharing!

  8. Glad you enjoyed this one. I'm not sure what to make of it. Your teaser is intriguing, but it seems to have received a lot of mixed reviews at Goodreads.

    1. I would definitely agree that there are a lot of mixed reviews out there. I believe it to be because of the overplay of love in this story. Kira and Adam have an inst-love feel to them but not completely so. I personally really enjoyed the setting of the story and the basis behind it. I wouldn't call it the greatest book in the world but I definitely believe it to be worth reading! I hope that helped with your dilemma. If not, thank you for stopping by!

    Happy Reading! :D

  11. I like that teaser. I've heard a lot of good things about that book but have yet to start it. My uncle is constantly calling people a little shit and he has a really strong Spanish accent so its hilarious.

    1. Ha, yeah the character hasn't talked to anyone in a long time and she is obsession with counting so it turns into kind of a poetic counting rhythm when she thinks in her head.
