Teaser Tuesday (2)

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 two (2) “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!

So this week I am reading SKINNY by Diana Spechler. I started this one last week at the beach, and besides the fact I want to stab the main character and shut her up, it's pretty decent. My teaser will come from page 156.

"Because I think it's poisonous to get that close to spilled paint and all that other stuff. You shouldn't be naked around spilled paint."
There are some good witticisms in this book, so if you can deal with an extremely annoying main character, maybe you should give it a try. Since Book Brats is dedicated to books that 20-somethings want to read, you should note that the main character is only 26, so right in our age range!

Have a great Tuesday!


  1. Okay, that's interesting. Good teaser.

    Here's mine: http://www.stuckinbooks.com/2011/07/teaser-tuesday-7-26-11.html

  2. LOL @ stabbing the main character. Happens to me all the time! I love this teaser though. Especially because it makes absolutely no sense. :)

    My teaser is here.

  3. LOL, you wanna smack the main character, but you love the book? I think I know what you mean though, and I agree with your teaser, naked around paint is maybe not the best idea....anyhow, my teaser is over at Book Savvy Babe

  8. I agree with that statement. Paint + bare skin is kinda a mess. Happy reading!

  9. Haha!! I don't want to read a book that makes me want to stab the main character. I'm trying to reduce my anger issues :) Kidding. Great teaser though.
