Teaser Tuesday with Thirteen Reasons Why

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!
I would have never picked up this book on my own. I browse the YA section more often these days, but a book about suicide wouldn't draw me in. I've heard a lot of great things about Jay Asher's book and they're all true. I'm blown away. I won't say it's the best thing I've ever read, but the teen inside of me reacted to it. The little things do affect all of us.
Here's your teaser:
For Jessica, it was easier to think of me as Bad Hannah than as the Hannah she got to know at Monet's. It was easier to accept. Easier to understand. (page 66)

  3. Liz and Cherie, you'll love the book. Easy to read too. Though likely not the most uplifting for the holidays!

  5. The last book I read about suicide put me in a serious downer... That was a few years back. I've steered clear of them since! But I've heard good things about this book.

  8. Oh I love this. Might need to do this with you next Tuesday!

    13 Reasons was great. Broke my heart a little, but in a good way. :)

  10. Sounds like a sad book, and not one I'd normally look up, but your words about it have made me want to look it up.

  11. I've actually had this book sitting on my shelf forever based on a friend's recommendation and I've never gotten around to reading it. I'll have to make room for it in my reading schedule! Thanks for visiting my teaser :)
