Teaser Tuesdays (February 17)

Should Be Reading hosts the Teaser Tuesdays weekly event.

My modified rules are as follows:

Grab your current read. Pick two or three “teaser” sentences more or less at random from the book, anywhere on the page. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your teaser from… that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given! (Please avoid spoilers!) (Read the official Teaser Tuesday rules.)

My teaser:

“The walks in the woods save me. There I’m not invisible by the choice of others. I’m not plain, or boring, or nervous. I’m not judged by the trees, the creek, or the earth” (p. 10).

This is from Skin Deep by E. M. Crane.


  1. Oh this just makes me feel bad for the person. Sounds kind of sad...my teaser is here.

  2. For some reason I feel like I read this teaser already but I don't see my comment.

    I felt sad for the person.

  3. This is beautiful. I look forward to reading what you think of it.
    Here's mine

  4. Ouch, sounds like a hurting person.

  5. Interesting teaser. I'm curious about the story behind it now.

  6. Good pick of your sentences. Makes me want to know more.

  7. I can relate to finding solace in nature. Sounds like an interesting book.

  8. Oh, I don't know anything about this book, but the Teaser is a good one; beautiful writing!

  9. Thanks everybody for your comments.

    I guess I didn't think of this quote as being that sad because I can relate to the character's feelings (or at least I felt that way as a kid too).

    I will hopefully be reviewing this book soon!
