Teaser Tuesday: The Predicteds

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:
I grabbed this book at BEA and decided to share the very first line because it was part of what really got my attention (awesome cover right?):

"Attention: There has been a shooting on school grounds. The building is currently under full lockdown. Please check back here for updates. -Quiet High website"

The Predicteds by Christine Seifert - page 3 (first of ch 1 and not prologue)

Yes, that is seriously how it starts. As you can imagine, while it wasn't the book I planned on reading first after my haul it ended up becoming first after that line. I just couldn't help myself!


  1. Talk about a grabber! I understand why you had to keep reading. My teasers are from The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong and Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh. Happy reading!

  2. Very interesting! It pulls you right in!


  3. Wow, what a start! I'd pick it up and start reading, too!

    If you'd like, you can check out my teaser here.

  4. FANTASTIC start! That makes me want to keep reading! I'm sad it's an ARC I don't have. Wish I'd gone to BEA!

  5. Wow! Catchy hook, and you're right, amazing cover art. I'll need to watch for this one...

    This week I have two teasers. Why? Because more is better!

  6. I love that book cover. great teaser too!

  7. You're the only reason I found out about this book in the first place but I hadn't given it much thought until now. That is quite a teaser. I'm intrigued!
