Teaser Tuesday with Mockingjay

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!
The Hunger Game series by Suzanne Collins is worth the hype. Each book is better than the last. Rarely do I get a chance to say that! It's YA dystopian. Well written and mature. It has a lot of action and twists. There's also parts that make my throat tighten up with emotion. I'm not someone that cries easily at all. This is powerful writing. Mockingjay is the final book in the trilogy. I'm almost at the end!

 Here's your teaser:
Peeta looks around at our stunned faces, as if waiting for a reply. When none is forthcoming, he asks, "Real or not real?" The lack of response upsets him more.  (page 274)
