Teaser Tuesday: The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

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!  

The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

The Evolution of Mara Dyer
- Simon & Schuster BfYR

I did something brave, then. Or stupid. Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference. I decided to trust her.
-- Chapter 2

“She scares me sometimes,” Dad finished. “You think she doesn’t scare me?” Maybe I didn’t want to hear this conversation after all.
-- Chapter 8

I feel like a bad reader for only getting to this one now. As an excuse that is not an excuse I think I’ll finish this in almost one sitting (damn pesky obligations like sleeping and working). Mara also is the sort of character that you have to be in the mood for to read about her and at the moment I’m absolutely enjoying her voice as it is quite different from the usual narrator in this category. Just the fact that I’m constantly asking myself how reliable Mara’s observation is and if what she is seeing is actually happening. One minor grievance: At this point there has been decidedly not enough of Noah. Even if I hear that this is a blessing and a curse. I like it better when he is around.

Do you have books that require a certain mood for you to read them? Tell us in the comments along with your teasers!

Why does she scare him? Why is he not so trusting about trusting her? Wow all these questions from one little tease! Great job!

Good teaser and cover.

Your teaser made me wonder why she shouldn't be trusted. Intriguing.
I definitely have to be in the right mood to read a certain book. If I'm feeling down, I'll avoid reading anything sad and will reach for a funny story instead.
My Teaser is from THE STORYTELLER.

Great teaser! I love these books and I just got around to reading them like a week ago.

Is there ever enough Noah? I don't think so.
