Teaser Tuesday 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!


This week's teaser(s) comes from the following book(s):

Add to Goodreads
Title: Requiem
Author: Lauren Oliver
Series: 3rd & final book in the Delirium series
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: March 5, 2013
Source: from publisher via Edelweiss
Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has been transformed. The nascent rebellion that was under way in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight.

After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven—pockets of rebellion have opened throughout the country, and the government cannot deny the existence of Invalids. Regulators now infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels, and as Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fiancée of the young mayor. Requiem is told from both Lena’s and Hana’s points of view. The two girls live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge.


My teaser:

"Behind me, I hear a shout, and a body thudding to the ground.  I pray that it's Lu and not Coral."
-- 55%/Loc 2609 of galley

Eeeeek!!!  I have been waiting and waiting to get to this novel.  I didn't want to read it too early and then not have anyone to discuss it with, but I can't hold out any longer.  Especially now that my sister is listening to this series, at my prodding.  I must know what happens after that ending in Pandemonium, even if it means I have to read from Hana's point-of-view again.  Blech.

What are you teasing this week?  Share it in the comments or leave a link so I can visit!

    1. I'm glad someone agrees...I race through the Hana chapters. I'm sure they'll mean something to me by the end, but right now, they grate on my nerves, especially after reading her novella. Blech, I say.

  10. I have this but still have a bunch of Feb stuff to read. I haven't read the novella but ... you don't like Hana's POV??? I loved Hana in the first book..

  11. I was planning on reading this series last year, but after one of my sisters read the first book and told me that basically nothing happens until the end, I decided to not read this series, at least not yet. I heard that many people loved Pandemonium though. I'm just very picky with which dystopian novels to read, because I'm more of a fantasy, paranormal, thriller, and mystery novel reader. Anyways, great teaser.
    Thanks for stopping by on my blog.
