Teaser Tuesday (11) The Hunger Games

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

His hand brushes the loose stands of my hair off my forehead. Unlike the staged kisses and caresses so far, this gesture seems natural and comforting. I don't want him to stop and he doesn't. He's still stroking my hair when I fall asleep.

Okay, so I will be completely honest. I had no intention of reading this series. I saw the movie, and I liked the movie. But everyone and their momma was saying that the book was so much better. I got the book and read it in two days. Guess what? They all lied. The book and the movie match up pretty well. I also can honestly say that all those Galeshipers are cray-cray. He is barely in the book so how can he be better than Peeta?


  1. Nice tease. It's sweet that he stroked her hair till she fell asleep. I haven't read this series either yet even though the books are sitting on my shelf. Hope to get to them later this year.

  2. Great teaser! Peeta is the best. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I loved this book, and I admit to being a Gale shipper the first time around but during my re-read I was like why did I pick Gale? lol Great tease!

  4. Yeah, I never understood the Galeshippers either after reading the first book. I got more about him from the movie than the book.
