*huff, puff* Gotta post and run. I picked this book up last Saturday and couldn't stop reading until I finished it in one sitting XD

After I read the book, I looked at some of the reviews of it, since it deals with what people would view as a sensitive topic. I'd already read the unexpurgated version of the fairy tale it's based on, though, so it didn't come as a big surprise to me... I just wanted to see how the author treated the material. She did it very well.

Today's teaser is taken from Deerskin, by Newbery Award-winning author Robin McKinley. I'm rereading it today, slower this time. 

She stopped chewing, and bowed, half a cake still in one hand. "By all the gods and goddesses, high, low, wandering, or incarnate, never bow to me unless I'm pinned to that blasted chair in that blasted room," he said feelingly, "or, I suppose, if my parents are present, or my sister --she's suddenly gotten very conscious of her standing-- that's Dorl's doing, drat him, and she doesn't even like him."
-p. 169, Deerskin by Robin McKinley

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!

    One of these days I will read Robin McKinley. I have heard such good things about her books.

    My teaser this week is quite action packed. It's from Frostbitten by Kelly Armstrong.
