Teaser Tuesday 1/4/11 - MATCHED by Ally Condie


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Here's what you do...
- Grab your current read
- flip to a random page
- select sentences from anywhere on the page
- try not to include any SPOILERS!
- make sure you tell the name of book and the author so we can add the book to our TBR pile!

Here's a teaser from Ally Condie's MATCHED, a bittersweet dystopian about a girl fighting to make her own decisions in a world that wants to make all of them for her. 


Because I know that I can never open the paper again. I have to get rid of it. Sitting here next to Ky, drinking in the sun with my skin, my mind is clear - and I let myself realize what the sound in the woods meant earlier. That Sharp, stick-snapping sound. 


Someone saw me.


Ky takes a breath, leans in closer. "I saw you."

This was a really good book. I was fascinated by the world that was created. Don't you just want to know what the 100 songs, paintings, and poems are? I have two this week. My YA teaser is from Five Flavors of Dumb and my adult teaser is from The Iron Duke. Happy reading!

Great teaser Alyssa... so how do you like the overall story? It's received a lot of hype from the publisher. At first, it was on my list to buy right away, but I've been waiting for some good reviews. What do you think?

Dottie :)
