Teaser Tuesday {#1}

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. She invites you to share 1 or 2 sentences from your current read. Just be careful not to reveal any spoilers!

Today, my read is The Host by Stephenie Meyer. I scored this book while thrifting for only 25cents. A few days ago, I saw the previews on television for the movie! It looked rather interesting, so I decided to go ahead and give it a read.

Here is the summary of The Host (taken from GoodReads):

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. Earth has been invaded by a species that takes over the minds of human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed.Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves - Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she's never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.Featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies, The Host is a riveting and unforgettable novel that will bring a vast new readership to one of the most compelling writers of our time.

And here are 2 teasers from the book:

  • "That's just great," someone said under his breath. "We've got a bloody queen mother alien living with us. She could blow into a million new buggers at any moment."

  • After all the planets and all the hosts you've left behind, you've finally found a place and the body you'd die for. I think you've found your home, Wanderer.
