Teaser Tuesday: Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To 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!  

Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

Pandemonium - Harper Teen

“In approved places, every story serves a purpose. But forbidden books are so much more. Some of them are webs; you can feel your way along their threads, but just barely, into strange and dark corners. Some of them are balloons bobbing up through the sky: totally self-contained, and unreachable, but beautiful to watch.
And some of them--the best ones--are doors.”
-- Chapter 13

Today is a late teaser, partly because the weather is nice and partly because I got stuck in a book, which is the best possible way to be stuck if you ask me. Pandemonium uses a different method to tell the story which began in Delirium. It took me a while to get used to the jumps between then and now, but now I’m at a point in the story where I always want to know what happens next, no matter which timeframe I’m in. So excuse me, there is a door waiting for me.

What are you reading?

What a great teaser! Such beautiful writing. I haven't read the first book in this series yet, but I keep hearing amazing things about both of them, so maybe I need to get on that bandwagon!
