Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker. Here are the rules if you want to play along:
- 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!
This week’s teaser comes from Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi, book #2 in the Shatter Me series.
The world might be sunny-side up today.
The big ball of yellow might be spilling into the clouds, runny and yolky and blurring into the bluest sky, bright with cold hope and false promises about fond memories, real families, hearty breakfasts, stacks of pancakes drizzled in maple syrup sitting on a plate in a world that doesn’t exist anymore.
Or maybe not.
This is a good example of the writing style in these books so far. This is the first three sentences in Unravel Me. It’s very poetic, full of metaphors, and to be honest, it takes some getting used to. By the end of Shatter Me, I was doing better with it.
Please leave your teasers in comments!

I love the descriptions! Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine: “THE NECKLACE”
The whole first book was like that. This POV character has been isolated for a very long time and as such has lived inside her head way too much. It makes for an interesting reading experience.
I have read Shatter Me but haven’t gotten any further
Here is mine:
The series has been on my radar for a while. I had bought a copy of Shatter Me years ago but never got around to reading it. I enjoyed it enough to try and keep going, so I guess that’s good!
