Teaser Tuesdays ~ Feb. 3rd...

February 3, 2009
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall to a random page.
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • Share the title of the book that you're getting your teaser from... That way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

Back in the village the men always at first, and the women and littlies got leftovers. Tally was a god, of course, and in some ways they had treated her as an honorary man, but some habits died hard.

Pretties, Scott Westerfeld ~ pg. 287

Very interesting...I've never heard of this book. Thanks for sharing.

Wanda said...

Sounds just a tad chauvinistic...

Margot said...

This is a teaser. Has me thinking: what time period, what country, what genre? Very good.

Here is my post!

Lisa ~ I'd never heard of the book, either. Then I read Uglies (which, coincidentally, was last week's Teaser). I just had to get the next book to find out what happens...

Wanda ~ Yes, it does, doesn't it? Boggles the mind then to know that this is set in the future...

Margot ~ This is a YA novel. There's a whole series by Scott Westerfeld about how people are considered ugly until they turn 16 when they undergo an operation to make them beautiful.

gautami ~ I'll have to swing by yours next... =)

Mary ~ Thank you!

Interesting one today. Mine's up here.

I'm fairly sure I've heard a bit about this series, although I don't do much YA stuff. Very good teaser - makes me wonder about Tally.
