Teaser Tuesday–The Hunger Games and Haunting Violet

How can it be Tuesday again?  I can’t believe that it’s almost July! Where did the first half of the year go??

I read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins over the weekend, and enjoyed it so much that I promptly ordered the other books in the trilogy.  What a fantastic book!  I wonder why I waited so long to discover it?

 
 

"“Then lie! Make something up!” says Haymitch.

“I’m not good at lying,” I say.

“Well, you better learn fast. You’ve got about as much charm as a dead slug,” says Haymitch.

 

I love Alyxandra Harvey’s Drake Chronicles, so I was happy to get my hands on Haunting Violet.  Will this be as good without those hunky Drake brothers?

The girl faded, tattering like mist under a spear of strong sunlight.

The ghostly candles guttered and went out.

 

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!
