Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading and it asks us to...



  • 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!
Here's my teaser this week:

It has been sixty-four years since the president and the Consortium identified love as a disease, and forty-three since the scientists perfected a cure. Everyone else in my family has had the procedure already.

Delirium - Lauren Oliver pg1 (teaser from arc, subject to change) Release date 2/1/2011

It seems weird trying to imagine a world without love *sniff sniff* what genre would I read then? Great teaser and I hope you enjoy the book :)

I would hate living in a world without love...of course if there was no love is there no hate? Interesting teaser to ponder! Thanks for sharing! Mine is at:
The Delusional Diaries

Oh, dear...love as disease. To be eradicated. It reminds me of a Robert Silverberg novel...Dying Inside, I think.

great teaser!
