Teaser Tuesday: Skin Hunger by Kathleen Duey


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  1. Grab your current read

  2. Open to a random page

  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

  4. 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!)

  5. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


This week I've started reading Skin Hungerby Kathleen Duey. I met Kathleen at the Central Coast Writers Conference which was held this past weekend at Cuesta College in SLO County. The Con as a whole was awesome, and I will write more about it soon. Promise. I took two sessions lead by Kathleen - one on writing YA books and another on writing MG books; the first one was just okay, but the second one was better - and later bought Skin Hungerand got it autographed by her at the closing table talks session. She's a lovely woman - perhaps a bit flighty I thought, but I can't really judge her because my brain is pretty scattered lately, too! So far I am really enjoying this book and am wishing I'd picked up the second one, Sacred Scars, which was also for sale at the Con. Anyway, here's my teasers from page 14:

The linens were stained with an ugly, deep red. No. Not red. Red-brown. The blood had dried.
