Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading.

I'm currently reading Leftovers by Laura Wiess and have to admit, I am almost sad for it since that means she has no more published novels for me to delve into but regardless, here is this week's teaser:

"That's when you start realizing your "firsts" aren't going to be the way you dreamed they would, and that you're feeling lost and stupid, inching your way around a whole new world. Each day brings a different worry like hairy armpits, periods, an BO, and wondering if you really are only worth your cup size. You start keeping your opinions to yourself because they might be dumb and you hate yourself for doing it, but it seems safer to blend in than stand out." -- page 8

Just one more example of how raw and powerful Wiess' writing and way with words can be, and that's only 8 pages in to yet another of her masterpieces.


  1. That is beautiful writing, I haven't heard of this author, what would you recommend as a first read by her?


  2. All 3 of her books are hard on the emotions to read so heads up but Such A Pretty Girl is her first book, a quick read, but an amazingly well written one. Her other book out is called How It Ends.

  3. I love her books, i still have 2 read How it ends :D

  4. I loved this quote I'll add this one to my TBR list - thanks!

  5. I just read this, and I loved it. Hope you're enjoying it too :)

  6. Just realised it was the Teaser not the review and also that Such a Pretty Girl is for me to read. :-)
