“On the morning I was scheduled to die, a large barefoot man with a bushy red beard waddled past my house. The thirty-degree temperature didn’t seem to bother him, but he must have had a lousy breakfast, because he let out a burp as loud as a tuba.” (pg. 1)

I enjoyed the imagery of the bushy red bearded man waddling around. And it was pretty awesome how matter of fact the narrator was like “this is the die I was to die”. Hoping the rest of the book is just as awesome as the start.

“In some ways, our being Matched is the biggest strike against me. How was she supposed to love me when the Society said she should?”

I’m listening to the audio book right now , it’s definitely different having someone read to you haha. My friend and I had a big talk about the love triangle in this series when the second book came out, funny when the character realizes the same things as the readers.

  1. The first teaser is great! Here is my teaser for this week.

  2. XANDERRRRRR. My god, I spent so much time in love with him and wishing him all the happiness ever.

    1. I usually don’t care much for the second leader, but Xander, I do totally wish him all the happiness too! Like in Hex Hall, even though I liked Sophie and Archer, all I wanted was Cal to happy haha.

      1. I’m almost consistently always Team Best Friend. I can’t help myself. Though, surprisingly, this time I didn’t want Xander with Cassia that much, but I did sincerely wish him lots and lots of happiness.

  3. I’m reading Crossed some time this year, already borrowed it. Very excited how this is going to turn out!
    Thanks for sharing, you two. =) Happy reading! My TT

    1. It’s not a bad series, though the middle book, Crossed, was a little disappointing. Reached, so far so good haha.

  4. The first teaser is funny… the second is intriguing… Thanks for sharing them both! Here’s my TT post!

  5. Two great teasers, and both of these sound like really interesting books.
    My teaser is from THE LAW OF SIMILARS.

  9. Awesome teasers! Reached was a great ending to the Match series. 🙂

    1. I definitely agree. I wasn’t keen on Crossed, but Reached more than made up for it. 😀

  10. Oh I got the novella to start the series Seven Wonders. That teaser is amazing. And hope you are both enjoying your reads. 🙂
