Teaser Tuesday – ‘The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf’

AshalaWolfTeaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! All you have to do is grab the book you’re currently reading, open to a random page and share two sentences from that page. But make sure you don’t share any spoilers!

I’ve branched out in my reading this week and got started on something that I probably wouldn’t usually pick up. The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf is young adult, dystopian, sci-fi/fantasy, and although I don’t strictly avoid these sorts of books, I would normally only read those that have been/are going to be made into movies (yes, I am occasionally a bandwagon reader).

But I was encouraged to look beyond the usual books by the Book Riot Read Harder Challenge. One of the tasks is to “read the first book in a series by a person of colour”. The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf fits both of these criteria, more of which I’ll chat about in a future post. For now, here are the sentences:

“‘That would have defeated the purpose of capturing you.’
   Because dead people couldn’t be subjected to the machine.”

What are you reading this week?

  1. Um definitely looking forward to hearing how this goes (if you haven’t already posted about it. I’m going chronologically here). I’m suuuuper anxious about YA which isn’t strictly fair, but like… I know how this shit goes for me haha.

    • It didn’t go well. I feel so little about this book that I actually don’t have much to say about it. I didn’t hate it – I’m just completely ambivalent towards it. I felt nothing towards the characters (although I did find the narrator a bit annoying), the world building was virtually non-existent, and in the end I felt like I’d read it before only better.
      I’ll definitely stick with my tried and true practice of only reading YA that’s been made into a film.

  2. I read and really really enjoyed this book! And also, there is nothing wrong with being a bandwagon reader. I only read Lord of the Rings because it had been made into a movie (lo these many years ago), and I am tremendously fond of those books now. I have no regrets!

    • I’ve got about 80 pages to go in it and I really like the idea of it, there’s just something that isn’t sitting right with me – I have much considering to do when I get to the end!
      I’ve read so many books just because of movies, most of them YA like The Hunger Games and The Maze Runner. I’m really enjoying The Shannara Chronicles tv series, and I know there’s loads of those books in my local second-hand bookstore, so I’m considering jumping on the bandwagon for that one – it’s a late bandwagon, but better late than never!

        • It didn’t. I have next to no opinion on this book – it was just a bunch of words on pages for me. But I kinda want to read the next book in the series to see if it’s any better, but also I won’t lose any sleep if I don’t do that.
