Good morning (or whatever time it is where you are), everyone!
Welcome to another installment of Taste Testing Tuesdays!
Taste Testing Tuesdays was inspired by 'Teaser Tuesdays', a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
On the menu this week is a sample of two books I'm currently reading. One is unpublished at this time, but still a great read none the less....can't wait to see what happens when it finally gets snatched up. The second is a classic from many moons ago that's perfect for this time of year. Here's your taste...just enough to make you wonder, without enough to give it away....
It was time. Their fingers interlaced, eyes hesitant before meeting each other’s gaze, and she nodded slowly, letting him know that she would follow wherever he would lead. Even if it meant death. -- pg 2, "The Second Circle: Guardian" by Dorothy Dreyer
Scrooge was not much in the habit of cracking jokes, nor did he feel, in his heart, by any means waggish then. The truth is, that he tried to be smart, as a means of distracting his own attention, and keeping down his terror; for the spectre's voice disturbed the very marrow in his bones. -- pg 23, "A Christmas Carol, Special Edition" by Charles Dickens , with insights by Stephen Skelton
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 participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Until next time....happy reading!
