Teaser Tuesdays: Brightly Woven

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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I recently started reading Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken. Here's a teaser from this book:

The next morning, our parents all emerged from the meeting place with the same pale strained look. A pact had been made. We young people knew that that single letter announcing the king's death had done more to shake the roots of our village than our ten-year drought.

  3. Hi, Erika. I love that book cover! (I know, they say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. But that one is beautiful.) But the teaser also makes it sound potentially worth reading.

    Right now, I'm reading Charlotte Abel's new YA novel, Enchantment. The setting is not quite so fantasy as Brightly Woven appears to be, but the characters are as deep.

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Wow, great teaser.

  6. Haven't heard anything about this one. Interesting teaser. I wonder what the pact was? Hmm.

  7. I have seen this book several times, but haven't read it yet. I love the cover and your teaser.
