Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme that was started by MizB from Should Be Reading.

If you would like to participate in Teaser Tuesday, all you have to do is take the book that you are currently reading and open it to any page. Then you choose any two (2) sentences from that page to share with the rest of us!

*Be careful not to include spoilers and make sure to include the book title and author

Peeps by Scott Westerfeld

"Okay, let's say you're a peep.  And before you got infected you loved chocolate - the parasite changes your brain chemistry so that you can't even stand to look at a Hershey's Kiss, the way movie vampires are afraid of crucifixes."

"What the hell is all that about?"

"It's an evolutionary strategy, so that peeps hide themselves.  That's why they live underground, to escape signs of humanity, and the sun to.  A lot of them do have cruciphobia-I mean, are afraid of crosses-because they used to be religious."

This books sounds really good, a different take on Vampires. I've read a review on this book and a few other books by Scott. They all sound really good. I am going to have to get to these some day.

Thanks for the great teaser. I feel bad for that person who use to like chocolate... such a shame to miss it.
