Teaser Tuesday: 30th January 2018

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 Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe which I read at the end of last week. This is one of those books that’s been sitting on my kindle for a while and I’m only now finally getting around to reading. Unfortunately though I don’t think I was in the right mood as I just never connected with it and found it a bit of a struggle (probably not helped by having to rush the last 100 pages). I can however say that I loved a lot of the writing and highlighted many sections making it the perfect choice for this week’s teaser.


My Teaser

Her eyes were like the night sky in the desert.

It felt like there was a whole world living inside her. I didn’t know anything about that world.

BlurbAristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe (Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, #1)

Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship—the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through this friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves and the kind of people they want to be.

  1. I have been wondering whether or not to read this. I hate being the “unpopular opinion” girl, and I just have this feeling I would be with this one.

    • Certainly my opinion is probably not the popular one but I really was in the wrong mood for reading it. I will say that there was a lot of the writing I loved, I just didn’t connect to the story.
