Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! You should too, it's really fun and a great way to find out about other awesome books, and blogs. 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!
Wow it's been a while since I have done one of these. I am going to do a teaser from Butter by Erin Jade Lange. This book is quite disturbing, but I can't stop reading. It's good, just the subject matter and how things are going is frustrating.

A lonely obese boy everyone calls "Butter" is about to make history. He is going to eat himself to death-live on the Internet-and everyone is invited to watch. When he first makes the announcement online to his classmates, Butter expects pity, insults, and possibly sheer indifference. What he gets are morbid cheerleaders rallying around his deadly plan. Yet as their dark encouragement grows, it begins to feel a lot like popularity. And that feels good. But what happens when Butter reaches his suicide deadline? Can he live with the fallout if he doesn't go through with his plans? With a deft hand, E.J. Lange allows readers to identify with both the bullies and the bullied in this all-consuming look at one teen's battle with himself.
"I can't take another year in this fat suit, but I can end this year with a bang. If you can stomach it, you're invited to watch... as I eat myself to death. (14 of 316 of eARC on Nook)
I am really into this book. I know I usually do more that one teaser, but I wasn't planning on doing a TT so I was totally unprepared. Leave me a link to your Tuesday post and I will check it out!!
