Grab your current read, flip to a random page, share two teaser sentences, don’t include spoilers.

The Stranger Game by Cylin Busby

But I was so different, a good girl. Straight A student, volunteer, Captain of the tennis team. Mom and Dad didn’t have to be worried about me. I wasn’t like Sarah and I never would be.


I’m profoundly proud of you. I can banish those dark memories now I am loved. I’m done running, pretending to be someone else.

This book gave me the chills when the pieces all started coming together and it’s something you really didn’t want to happen.  Also, I’m not really a fan of the cover. For some reason I got excited at the thought this might be a dystopian/sci-fi/fantasy novel, but it wasn’t.

  1. I like books that give me chills (unless they’re too scary!) Your Teaser makes me curious about what happens to this “good girl.”
    My Tuesday post features The Boys in the Boat.

  2. This sounds interesting. I wouldn’t have given this book much notice but the fact it gave you chills has me wondering if I should give it a shot.

  3. This one has me intrigued. Thank you for sharing! 🙂 My Teaser Tuesday is The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller
