Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Purple Booker. If you want to join in grab your current read, flick to a random page, select two sentences (without spoilers) and share them in a blog post or in the comments of The Purple Booker.
This week my teaser comes from It Only Happens in the Movies by Holly Bourne, a YA contemporary romance about real relationships and how they’re nothing like we see in the movies. I finished this at the weekend and really enjoyed it. I highlighted quite a lot as I was reading so it seemed like the perfect choice for teaser.
“… And, the real question is, why not zombies, Audrey? If you’re going to do anything, you need to ask yourself – would this situation benefit from adding zombies? The answer is almost always ‘yes’.”

Audrey is over romance. Since her parents’ relationship imploded her mother’s been catatonic, so she takes a cinema job to get out of the house. But there she meets wannabe film-maker Harry. Nobody expects Audrey and Harry to fall in love as hard and fast as they do. But that doesn’t mean things are easy. Because real love isn’t like the movies…
The greatest love story ever told doesn’t feature kissing in the snow or racing to airports. It features pain and confusion and hope and wonder and a ban on cheesy clichés. Oh, and zombies… YA star Holly Bourne tackles real love in this hugely funny and poignant novel.
