Teaser Tuesdays (39)

This week is crazy, and it's only Tuesday! I got a new bookshelf, and then we have this awesome event called DYSTOPIAN DOMINATION. We currently have 5 contests ongoing, where you can win A PRE-ORDER of JEFF HIRSCH's THE ELEVENTH PLAGUE (blurbed by Suzanne Collins & edited by David Levithan), 2 ARCs of Emma Newman's 20 YEARS LATER, A SIGNED ARC OF Jeyn Roberts' DARK INSIDE, A DARK PARTIES LATTE MUG from Sara Grant and A SIGNED FINISHED COPY OF ELANA JOHNSON'S POSSESSION!

Did I mention that ALL 5 CONTESTS are OPEN INTERNATIONALLY? How cool is that? Join now!!! :)

Later today I'll be giving away a finished copy of this book I'm posting a teaser of, so watch out for it. It's still a part of our Dystopian Domination event!

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!

"Hi", she said, putting on a bright smile for all she was worth. "I'm Laura."
"Hi," he said in a voice as timid as anyone would have imagined. "I don't have a name anymore."
"What? What do you mean?"
"My real parents have it. They took it. They took everything about me with them."

~p. 59, "Those That Wake" by Jesse Karp

Intriguing, huh? I thought so too. I'm still trying to familiarize myself with the story and I'm still a bit confused, but I'm hoping it gets better as I read on. :)

Share your teasers for today, please!

  2. That's really intriguing. Parents can take away your name? If my parents did that to me, I'm gonna die.
