Teaser Tuesday: Peeps

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 a few “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.

Okay, I like vampires! (Even the ones that sparkle.) So when I heard the Scott Westerfeld (of Uglies fame) had a vampire book out, I scooped it up! A new take on vampires and a really good read.

Cal is infected. But this disease is not your typical head cold. Sure, he gets superhuman strength, sight, and smell, while craving red meat, but this particular infection doesn't like to play nice. Fortunately for him, he's immune. Unfortunately, anyone Cal kisses can become infected and the odds are they won't fair as well as he does. First, you start to not like the things you used to love, like chocolate or Elvis. Then you can't stand to see your own face in a mirror and sunlight hurts. Pretty soon, you aren't too picky about the meat you eat, even if that steak used to be your neighbor. So when during an investigation he meets a girl, Cal's first inclination is to stay away. But Lace isn't the kind of girl that accepts his carefully crafted story. And she might just be the very thing he needs the most.

Here's the Teaser:
"Something happened here," Lace said. "Something the landlords wanted to cover up. I need to know what it was."
- pg 60, Peeps by Scott Westerfeld
