Teaser Tuesday #16

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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

My Teaser:

His face was turned toward Zu, who slept between us under a mountain of blankets and was currently the only thing that was keeping me from inching closer to him; from slipping my hand under his bigger one and learning the contents of his dreams.

But the distance between us was there for a reason.

This is fantastic so far, I'm not sure why I kept putting off reading it and I definitely prefer this Australian cover to the US dark one. This is a fantastic YA dystopian fantasy.

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!


  1. This teaser caught my attention immediately. Just from that small blurb I want to read this. I like the cover a lot too!!

  2. Love the cover, and your teaser is perfect. I'm already intrigued with the story.

  3. I've been put off a little by YA Dystopian books... I don't know why, but I feel as if the drama is crazy and sufficient, but the characters are way to young for me to connect with. But this does sound really good... the blurp is intriguing. Great TT Post :)

  5. Can she read minds through touch? Very interesting tease!

  6. Gotta agree about the cover for sure. Looks interesting.


  7. Loved this book! Glad your enjoying it too. :D However, I prefer the US version to the Austrailian version. The dark cover feels more mysterious to me. xD Thanks for stopping by! :D
