Teaser Tuesdays: Pretties


After sitting on the fence for ages, I finally started and zipped through the second book in the Uglies trilogy last week.

Second time around, the language in the book didn’t bother me as much as the first book did, and I even liked and bookmarked some snippets to share here.

Everyone in the world was programmed by the place they were born, hemmed in by their beliefs, but you had to at least try to grow your own brain.

Otherwise, you might as well be living on a reservation, worshiping a bunch of bogus gods.

This is a dystopian YA series that is slowly starting to grow on me.

Have you read this book or the series? What do you think about it?

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
  • I listened to this series and enjoyed it.

    I haven’t read this one yet, but I read a few reviews about it and people seem to enjoy it!

    Here is my teaser.

    This is a good series. I read them a while back after my niece told me she liked the books.
