Teaser Tuesday: Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld

Teaser Tuesday is a meme hosted by Should Be Reading. It’s super easy: open your current read to a random page and share two sentences from that page – but make sure you don’t spoil the book!


My current read is Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld. I opened it to a random page – 283 – and this is the quote I want to tease you with from that page.

The whistle of the bad man’s breath sputtered for a moment, and a tremor passed through the gray bedclothes. I froze, staring at them, my heart pounding sideways in my chest. Even invisible, I felt as though any movement would wake him. I was afraid to breath.

Afterworlds is told in alternating chapters (from Darcy’s perspective and then from chapters within her novel), so I thought it’s only fair to give you a teaser from a chapter set in Darcy’s perspective, as the first is from her novel. This teaser is from page 264.

Their bodies fit perfectly like this, two continents pulled apart eons ago but now rejoined.

I know that last one isn’t very long, but I like that sentence all by itself. It doesn’t need any context. I’ve only read ten pages of Afterworlds so far, but I really like it. I’m looking forward to getting to these two teasers.

If you participate in Teaser Tuesday, link me up! Or if you don’t, tease me with your current read in the comments!
