Teaser Tuesday # 85 ~ Allegiant by Veronica Roth

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!)

My Tease for this week comes from:


(Divergent #3)

Veronica Roth

First - The Blurb:

The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories. 

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

 Second - The Teasers:

Tease 1

“You're not very nice," I say, grinning.
"You're one to talk."
"Hey, I could be nice if I tried."
"Hmm." He taps his chin. "Say something nice, then."
"You're very good-looking."
He smiles, his teeth a flash in this dark. "I like this 'nice' thing.” 

Tease 2

Then his lips are on mine again, and he pulls his shirt out from under my hands so that I am touching his bare skin. I come to life, pressing closer, my hands creeping up his back, sliding over his shoulders. His breaths come faster and so do mine, and I taste the lemon-syrup-fizz we just drank and I smell the wind on his skin and all I want is more, more.

I know many of you are way a head of me on reading this series, so you all know how it ends. For those of you though who haven't read it, well, I don't want to give away any spoilers so I'll just give you my ratings instead.

Divergent: 5 out of 5
Insurgent: 4 out of 5
Allegiant: 4 out of 5

  1. Interesting teasers. I was debating for a while whether or not I should start reading this series, but now it doesn't sound as appealing to me anymore. We'll see if I ever decide to pick it up.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Great teasers! Despite how many people feel, I did enjoy this one!

  7. No, I'm behind on this one. I've only read Divergent. Not for lack of desire though.

  8. Great teasers, Marilyn! I haven't started this series yet - so who's behind?!? ;) But I'm going to read it...because I want to see the movie. *ha*

  9. The DIVERGENT series WAS my favorite series, I think I can even say EVER! But after reading ALLEGIANT, I had a VERY different opinion about the series. Well, not the series because I still love the first and second book, but ALLEGIANT, nope, I hated it for MANY reasons, not just the ending! But I really hope you form a different opinion then I do, because VR is an amazing writer despite ALLEGIANT, in my opinion!

    Thanks for stopping by my TT @ Addicted Readers! :)

  10. Oh boy I seriously need to read this book. How come you didn't like this book as much? Love the teasers. Makes me want to read it more!
