Teaser Tuesdays (June 16)

Should Be Reading hosts the Teaser Tuesdays weekly event.

My modified rules are as follows:

Grab your current read. Pick two or three “teaser” sentences more or less at random from the book, anywhere on the page. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your teaser from… that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given! (Please avoid spoilers!) (Read the official Teaser Tuesday rules.)

My teaser:

“Figuring things out was an essential property of Dev the way impenetrability is an essential property of matter or oddness is an essential property of the number three. Nothing unusual about the figuring out part” (p. 60).

This is from Belong to Me by Marisa de los Santos.


  1. I've seen this cover and wondered about this one... looks good.

  2. Dev sounds like an interesting, but possibly annoying, personality! Looks like an intriguing book, though. Nice teasers.

  3. I had book club last night and we read Love Walked in and I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to picking up Belong to Me. Thanks for the teaser.

  4. That's a great teaser...this is the second one I have seen by this author today.

  5. I've seen this book in the bloggersphere a lot. It looks interesting.

  6. This is an intriguing teaser. I love people who have "figuring things out" as one of their essential properties. They're so interesting.

    Meanwhile, my own teaser is at Bookishgal.

  7. Sounds a fun book!

    Here's mine:


    Take care,


  8. Wow, that sentence is a doozy. I am totally lost.

  9. I'm curious to see what you thought of this book. It wasn't one of my favorites but I did like it.
