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 to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The Hunger Games
(The Hunger Games #1)
First - The Blurb:
Winning will make you famous.
Losing means certain death.
In a dark vision of the near future, twelve boys and twelve girls are forced to appear in a live TV show called the Hunger Games. There is only one rule: kill or be killed.
When sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen steps forward to take her sister's place in the games, she sees it as a death sentence. But Katniss has been close to death before. For her, survival is second nature.
May the odds be ever in your favour.
Second - The Tease:
I can feel Peeta press his forehead into my temple and he asks, "So, now that you've got me, what are you going to do with me?"
I turn into him. "Put you somewhere you can't get hurt."
"Lean down a minute first," he says. "Need to tell you something."
I lean over and put my good ear to his lips, which tickle me as he whispers. "Remember, we're madly in love, so it's all right to kiss me any time you feel like it."
I jerk my head back but end up laughing. "Thanks, I'll keep it in mind."
For a while now, my daughter has been suggesting that I read this series. Well, after watching the first three films in a movie marathon, I did just that.
My Rating for Book 1: 4 out of 5
