TEASER TUESDAY


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, just do as 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 any spoilers so as not to ruin the book for others.


Make sure to share the title and the author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR piles.


This week's Teaser is from
The Catastrophic History of You and Me
Dying of a broken heart is just the beginning.... Welcome to forever.

BRIE'S LIFE ENDS AT SIXTEEN: Her boyfriend tells her he doesn't love her, and the news breaks her heart—literally.

But now that she's D&G (dead and gone), Brie is about to discover that love is way more complicated than she ever imagined. Back in Half Moon Bay, her family has begun to unravel. Her best friend has been keeping a secret about Jacob, the boy she loved and lost—and the truth behind his shattering betrayal. And then there's Patrick, Brie's mysterious new guide and resident Lost Soul . . . who just might hold the key to her forever after.

With Patrick's help, Brie will have to pass through the five stages of grief before she's ready to move on. But how do you begin again, when your heart is still in pieces? ~From GoodReads 



My Teaser:

"There it was, exactly as the x-ray said it would be. Even though their science couldn't explain it. Even though it was the sort of thing that only happened in sappy love songs. I peered in over my father's shoulder, over my dead body, and stared. There she was.

My heart.

Sleeping. Silent. And severed in perfect, equal, extraordinary halves."  (pg.17, ARC)


Catastrophic History was a pretty amazing book. I'll have my review up later this week.

Hardcover, 400 pages
Published February 21st 2012 by Penguin Young Readers Group

  2. I heard of this book, but didn't know the premise. The girl's heart literally breaks in half? I wonder how that logic worked its way into the story. It sounds really interesting and different, and the teaser is great.
