Teaser Tuesday: Wither

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 "teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists!


This week my teaser comes from a digital ARC of Wither by Lauren DeStefano. This is futuristic dystopian YA and I haven't read anything else quite like it. It's rather disturbing, in a subtle, creepy, polygamous society sort of way. Jury's still out on this one, we'll see how it ends. From page 47:


Wither (The Chemical Garden Trilogy)The man in white says, "What fate has brought together, let no man tear asunder." Fate, I think, is a thief.
Got a teaser to share?
Please leave a comment with a link to your post so I can check it out!
