Teaser Tuesday (Matched)

Tuesday, December 07, 2010

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should be Reading. The rules:

1. Grab what you are currently reading and open to a random page
2. Share 2 sentences from 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!)

"As the Committee leaves, they all shake Grandfather's hand and say, "Congratulations."  And I swear that I can read Grandfather's mind as he meets their gaze with his sharp eyes.  Are you congratulating me on my life, or on my death?"

-Matched by Ally Condie, pg. 76
This book has already gotten a movie deal and it just came out November 30.  Can you believe it?  The cover of this book is certainly dreamy.  Stay tuned for the book review- coming soon.

  1. Matched is already on my tbr list but now I am extra intrigued! Great teaser. :)

  2. Here is my teaser from Witchgrass: A Pipe Dream by Dave Wilkinson (Page 1):

    Most gardeners hate witchgrass. Of all weeds it is one of the most persistent and adaptable. Any small piece of rhizome left in the soil can become an aggressive plant ready to take over the plot. Witchgrass is hard to pull. Roots are deep, and break off easily. Any part left in the ground will grow again. Farmers say the species isn't even good as hay, not as good as timothy or alfalfa. Some call it quickgrass.

    Early New England colonists blamed evil people for this garden invader. In the seventeenth century villagers would speak this way:

    "The surly woman living alone on her dead husband's estate. She goes into the woods and consorts with the Devil. Signs his book. Fornicates with him. Eats mushrooms. She and the Devil send witchgrass to harass the virtuous and the Godly. Let us hang this witch and seize her rich farm."

  3. Should be on my TBR list.
