Teaser Tuesday

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!
My teaser this week comes from:

XVI by Julia Karr

Small blurb from Goodreads.com: Nina Oberon's life is pretty normal: she hangs out with her best friend, Sandy, and their crew, goes to school, plays with her little sister, Dee. But Nina is 15. And like all girls she'll receive a Governing Council-ordered tattoo on her 16th birthday. XVI. Those three letters will be branded on her wrist, announcing to all the world—even the most predatory of men—that she is ready for sex.

Teaser comes from page 95: "Tattoos.  I slid my wrist under the covers.  There was no way out.  My birthday was soon."

What are your teasers for this week?


  1. I SOOOOO want this book!!!!

    --I saw your comment on Should Be Reading--And I HAVE to follow anyone who loves The Thorn Birds!!!

  2. LOL on The Thornbirds! I loved it. Did you ever see the miniseries they made of it?

    Kate...I'm posting my review of XVI on the 28th. I really enjoyed it.

  3. OMG--somehow I caught the miniseries on tv when I was like 10--It felt like the kind of thing that probably wasn't age appropriate, but I was still completely hooked *sigh*
