Teaser Tuesday (TT8)

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!

Book: The Hunger Games
Author: Suzanne Collins

"So here's what you do. You win, you go home. She can't turn you down then, eh?" says Caesar, encouragingly.

"I don't think it's going to work out. Winning... won't help in my case," says Peeta.

"Why ever not?" says Caesar, mystified.

Peeta blushes beet red and stammers out. "Because... because... she came here with me." (page 130)


  1. Great teaser... I still have not read this one!

    My TT this week is from the classic Anna Karenina.

  2. Great teaser. I haven't read this one yet. I keep meaning to.

  3. Love, love, love this book! You chose a great scene, too. I think that's the first time I realized Peeta was smarter than he let on. My teaser this week is from another dystopian YA novel: Matched.

  4. Good teaser...have been seeing this book a lot lately.

  6. Glad you got to the series. I probably never will! My teaser is at The Crowded Leaf.

  7. @Booklover, Guatami, and Shelley: I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who hadn't read it yet.

    @LadyQ: I am really starting to get into the dystopian genre, and Matched is one that I'm going to be reading soon.

    @Kristen, Alayne, Marg: I had been thinking that all the hype for Mockingjay was way over done, but after finishing The Hunger Games... it's good!
