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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Publication Date: March 5th 2013

From Goodreads:

Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has been transformed. The nascent rebellion that was under way in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight.

After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven—pockets of rebellion have opened throughout the country, and the government cannot deny the existence of Invalids. Regulators now infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels, and as Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fiancée of the young mayor. Requiem is told from both Lena’s and Hana’s points of view. The two girls live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge.

The Teaser(s):

     Since Alex reappeared, resurrected but also changed, twisted, like a monster from one of the ghost stories we used to tell as kids, the past has been finding its way in. It bubbles up through the cracks when I’m not paying attention, and pulls at me with greedy fingers.     pg. 1

And one more…

    We wanted the freedom to love. We wanted the freedom to choose. Now we have to fight for it.    (page number is a secret)

*(Please note that this has been taken from an ARC and may differ from the final copy)

I tried to find the least spoiler-ish teasers I could find. As the last book in the series with so much hanging in the balance from the last one, that was quite a challenge. That first teaser I picked right from page one so it gives nothing away and I just loved the lines from the second teaser so I had to add it as well. Can’t wait for everyone to read this one!

    I shouldn’t have read these but I couldn’t help it!! I still haven’t read Pandemonium because I know Julian comes into the story and I just love Alex too much I can’t stand the thought of a love triangle =/ or Lena choosing someone else! Ahhhh
