Teaser Tuesday: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

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 the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I just finished Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone yesterday, and all I can say is "Wow!". I'll get into that more on Friday in the Fall Book Club discussion, though. After finishing such a good book I had that not-sure-what-I-wanna-read-next feeling going on. I figured since it's October, why not go with something kind of creepy. It was a toss-up between The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson and The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer  by Michelle Hodkin. I chose the latter because I've been hearing so much about it, and all good things. So here's my teaser:

"We followed slowly, the beam of Jude's flashlight bouncing over the walls as we advanced toward the impenetrable black hole that yawned in front of us. When Rachel and Claire disappeared behind a corner I sped up, terrified to lose them in the labyrinthine passageways."

p. 232, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Sounds kind of creepy, right? The only downside to these Teaser Tuesdays is that randomly selecting sentences from the book can sometimes reveal things that I don't yet want to see. Guess next time I should pull these sentences from the part I've already read (Duh!).


  1. That does sound creepy! This has been on my TBR forever--I think I just might have to get it soon!

    Thanks for the teaser!
    My TT

  2. I adore the title of this book...now I'm even more intrigued.

  3. That book looks so good--why don't I have more time to read lately?!

  4. I really need to read this...so many books to read! Aaaah.


I ♥ comments. They make me smile.☺
