Teaser Tuesdays and It's Tuesday...Where Are You?

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
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!

She looks down at her stomach, searching to find a likely place, and makes the first cut, waiting for the moment when the pain of the razor erases everything else. It's not happening as fast as it usually does, and her breath comes in little gasps as the razor sinks deeper and deeper into her flesh.
---Willow by Julia Hoban

I'm hurting myself the only way I know how and that's by cutting open my skin to allow it all to come out. I wish I could cry but I can't. I don't allow myself those feelings of sorrow...I don't deserve to feel, why you ask? Because I am a murderer.....I killed my parents.

~ Willow by Julia Hoban


  1. Wow that sounds pretty dark. While I have no doubt this would be fascinating, it is probably a little to serious for me. Is it based on a true story?

    My teaser is here

  2. Sounds like this one could be hard to read too! I have read a couple of "heavy" books lately. Will be looking forward to your review.

  3. A difficult read but I do read those kinds.


  4. Wowwwwwwwwwwwwww.....this is DEEP! :):):):)

  5. Well that doesn't look like the easiest of reads but it does seem well-written. Good teaser!

  6. I've been really wanting to get my hands on this one...I can't wait to hear your thoughts when you finish :)

  7. Yikes!! Good one. I've been thinking about reading that one.

  8. Okay, I'm sufficiently grossed out! I look forward to your review, but I'm thinking 'better you than me!'

  9. That teaser packs quite a punch! Such a serious topic. Hope she gets help in the book.

    Here's my Teaser! ~ Wendi

  10. Poor kid!
    This book is on my tbr. Good teaser Staci.
    Here is my teaser

  11. I have heard some great things about Willow. Hope you are enjoying it.

  12. Intense...

    I have heard good things about this book, I am not certain if I could read this intense theme.

  13. good teaser, it does pull you in, but I'm not sure I could stomach the book. come on by and read my teaser

  14. Well, all I can say is that it hurts me to read it. Hope you are enjoying it.

  15. Wow- I don't know if I could handle this one!

  16. Oh dear, that teaser made me squirm. I've heard good things about this book, though, so I hope you're enjoying it despite the dark topic.

  17. Hi Staci!

    I liked your Teaser - and the Where are You gives a bit more insight into WHY someone would be a cutter - I always wondered how people could do that to themselves - but I suppose if your mind doesn't allow for any other emotional releases it will find a way to get it all out. *shivers*
