Teaser Tuesday: Team Human by Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan

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!

Team Human by Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan.

Team Human – HarperTeen
Let’s examine what a prize that is one more time: no more direct sunlight ever again, no more laughter. You get eternity, but you don’t have the sense of humor to enjoy it! Also, vampires don’t eat food. You never get to eat chocolate again. Ever.
I’d rather die.
— Chapter 4

But I couldn’t tell Cathy about Francis’s undead love-weasel ways. Anyway, this was more proof that Francis really was too old for her.
It truly was for her own good.
Agreeing with Francis gave me a stomachache, so I sat there and made a face.
— Chapter 9

As I’m currently reading a few books that won’t be out until late next year and I don’t quite want to tease you too badly, I picked up a random favourite author ... and look, I got a 2 for 1 deal! You might have noticed that I absolutely adore Sarah Rees Brennan and would possibly read a shopping list she wrote with similar enthusiasm to her other writings because I can’t imagine that it would be dull. In this book Sarah and Justine Larbalestier combine their genius to poke some good-natured fun at vampires and their often doe-eyed love interests. All in the name of saving humanity and rational thinking ... or something like that. And on top of that you get a really cool main character in a story that can be read as quite thought-provoking. But I dare you not to laugh or chuckle at least once while you’re reading.

Would you be the one who dates a vampire or the one who tries to convince the friend that there are more viable options? Share ideas and teasers in the comments.

Good point. Who wants to give up chocolate for an undead existence. Certainly not me. LOL Great teaser.

Sounds fun! Who knew vampires had no sense of humor. :)

I like the first teaser. I havent heard of this author before. I will have to look her up. Happy Reading My Teaser

No chocolate, good enough reason to stay human.

It certainly sounds like an entertaining read, but I'm not a fan of vampires and wolves; I do hope you enjoy this one!

Yeah, your teasers definitely have a chuckle factor. I don't read too many paranormal stories anymore, but this one sounds like a lot of fun. Happy reading!

This week it's all fantasy with My Teasers.
